An excellent debut from a solid band. Despite the fact that "Du Hast" put them on the international stage, this disc is consistently catchy and brutal at the same time, and a good starting point for someone looking to get into the band.
The first, the original, the one that made Rammstein, Rammstein. It ushered in a new sound, a new style.
With its aggressive hard hitting chunky riffs and angry. gutteral sounding lyrics, Herzeleid is by far one of the best metal albums to come out. Even though at first I didn't understand much of what was being said it still made me feel and it awed me how just a sound could make me feel and that I didn't have to hear what was being said to feel what Rammstein was trying to convey.
