German industrial metal band Rammstein will be releasing an explicit video for “Mein Herz Brennt” this Friday here. The website has a ticking clock counting down the release. The decrepit building has several shattered windows that will glow red if you click on them (the hospital “plus” symbol does the same”. The bell in the steeple turns the sound on and off. All in all, it’s a rather eerie website.
While the song originally appeared on the album Mutter, a single of it was released today on iTunes that includes a piano version (watch the really unsettling video below), four other versions and a new song entitled “Gib Mir Deine Augen”.
The band will also be releasing a DVD/Blu-ray collection entitled Videos 1995-2012. Every music video they’ve released will be included on this collection as well as two new videos for “Mein Herz Brennt”. Pre-orders are available here.
