Rammstein are back! While we had to wait a decade for the follow-up to 2009's Liebe ist für alle da, 2019's Untitled record already has a successor in the wings with the announcement of Zeit, which will be with us on April 29.
Naturally, the band announced their new album with a suitably epic and stirring video for the title track (which we've handily broke down for you). It might not have been as explosive as Feuer Frei or as shocking as Pussy, but with 40,000 people tuning in on YouTube just to watch the music video premiere, it's fair to say the band made quite the stir with their first single.
These are some of the best, worst and most WTF? reactions we came across online...
Some people loved it

Rammstein fazendo algo magnífico e choca o total de zero pessoas. https://t.co/A68krFFtjRMarch 10, 2022
Some weren't convinced
I'm German and I HATE Rammstein, especially because I understand the crap they're singing. This video proves what I've been saying for 25 years. Their lyrics sound like a twelve year old could have written them. So this here makes much more sense than the real band.February 10, 2022
Forse perché ancora in botta durissima da Impera, devo capire cosa penso dell’ultimo singolo dei Rammstein perché per la prima volta in 23 anni il primo impatto è stato “meh!”March 11, 2022
Kinda meh on the first listen of the new Rammstein single, BUT I’m excited overall for a new album and I love their new press photo. pic.twitter.com/3Z3TV04JkzMarch 11, 2022
Some even went a bit OTT for it

While others wondered where the party bangers were at
i hope rammstein releases another jam like pussy, my heart cant handle such an emotional song (possibly) hinting their endMarch 11, 2022
But there's no denying, Rammstein really do have an eye for artistic music videos
