Rammstein Explore an Island and Its Inhabitants in the Band’s New Video for ‘Auslander’

0

When German hard rock/industrial legends Rammstein released their new self-titled album in mid-May, it made a strong impression. The band’s trademark sinister elements and near-relentless barrage of riffs and rhythm was on full display, as always, but so too was a sense of inescapable melody on tracks like “Auslander.”

That song, which almost veers into remix-ready status due to its propulsive drum beat and hook, has its own video and true to its title “Auslander” — which means “Foreigners” in German — the band members are just that when they ride a boat to an exotic island and mingle with its inhabitants before leaving.

It’s probably a comment on colonialism, and it makes for an interesting view. Note that this video is definitely NSFW, in true Rammstein fashion.

Rammstein (the album) debuted at No. 9 on the U.S. charts, the highest position on the U.S. charts ever achieved by a Rammstein album. That’s impressive.

Showing just how big the band still is on the global level, the album hit No. 1 in a number of countries:

The untitled record has debuted at #1 in 14 countries—Germany (its tenth #1 in its home country), Canada, Belgium, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland, Poland and Austria—as well as #2 in Sweden, Spain and the Czech Republic, #3 in the UK (the highest a German-speaking artist has charted in UK history) and Latvia, #4 in Lithuania, and #5 in Italy and Australia.

While the band hasn’t announced U.S. tour dates yet — and with the rumors that this could be Rammstein’s final studio album and world tour — it seems inevitable that the group will bring its incendiary and explosive live show stateside one more time.
