Our favorite German rock band is in the final stages of production on a new album. That’s right- Rammstein is reportedly close to finishing a new record.
In a recent tweet, the band exclaimed “Almost done! Orchestra and choir recordings in Minsk for album No. 7!”

Nearly A Decade Without Rammstein
The Berlin-based band left us with ‘Liebe ist für alle da’, marking the industrial rockers’ 6th studio album. The band has hinted at completion by the end of this year, but for now we can safely assume that this new project won’t see daylight until some time in early 2019. Our guest is that the album will be released next year, and it will have been a decade since Rammstein’s last album in 2009.
More information is available here.
The heavy-hitting metal outfit formed in Berlin, Germany in 1994. Rammstein boasts a lineup of 6, which has remained unchanged since its inception in the mid-1990s. While this is an impressive feat, the band has much more to be proud of. As well as retaining it’s position as the figurehead for German rock music, the band has reached an uncompromising level of international acclaim.
“Liebe ist Fuer Alle Da”
While the group has held onto its popularity for nearly two and a half decades, it hasn’t come without its challenges.
In 2009, German government banned their album, “Liebe ist Fuer Alle Da” from public displays due to depictions of sado-masochism. The hard rock giants haven’t been afraid of touching dark or even taboo subjects such as sadomasochism, homosexuality, incest, abuse, necrophilia, pyromania, cannibalism and sexual violence.
Could This Be It?
We’re all salivating over the idea of a new record. Despite the excitement, it’s a bittersweet occasion as guitarist Richard Kruspe alluded that this may be their last album together.
I just feel like, for some reason, that it’s going to be the last record we do. That’s a feeling, I can be wrong – but at the moment, I feel like this is maybe the last shot we have.
