Rammstein have shared the official video for ‘Adieu’, the final song from their recent album ‘Zeit’.
The visuals were directed by Specter Berlin, who also directed the video for their 2019 comeback single ‘Deutschland’ and are perhaps less like a music video and more like a short film, clocking in at just short of nine minutes. All six members of the Neue Deutsche Harte band are part of the video’s large cast, which also includes the many mysterious figures making up a group known only as ‘The Damned’.
Fans have been keen to point out the references to classic Rammstein videos within the visuals as well as various Easter eggs, such as a vault with ‘MUTTER-22’ on it (referencing the band’s landmark 2001 album) and a number plate reading ‘LI-FAD6’ (an acronym of their sixth album’s title, 2009’s ‘Liebe ist für alle da’)
Watch the video and see some of the fan theories below:
