Just a few weeks after the release of their new song “Zeit,” the mighty Rammstein have revealed the full track list for their upcoming album of the same name.
Last week, the band launched a scavenger hunt-type competition in which 11 “Zeit Capsules” were hidden in various locations around the world, to represent the 11 songs on the album.
The coordinates for the first seven capsules were provided on their website on March 25, and fans were challenged to attempt to use them to locate the one nearest them. In addition to having access to the track list, lucky finders of the capsules were also given two concert tickets to a Rammstein show of their choice, as well as the accompanying travel to get there.
