German industrial metal/Neue Deutsche Härte legends Rammstein has revealed that they will be releasing their new, self-titled studio album on May 17th through UME/Spinefarm in Europe and Caroline Records in North America. The band has also posted a new music video online for the song, "Deutschland," which can be seen below.

The video clocks in at over nine minutes and shows the band throughout a number of periods in German history, beginning in 16 AD and leading up to the atrocities the Nazi government committed. The video has already received complaints from Jewish groups for the latter depiction, as well as the Israeli government, who have accused the band of exploiting the holocaust for promotional purposes. Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon tweeted: "This Rammstein clip, using the Holocaust for advertisement purposes, is shameful and uncalled for. We join the many voices calling for its immediate removal."

German officials have also expressed concern and criticism over the band and the video, with politician and war memorial manager Karl Freller inviting the band to visit the Dachau concentration camp and stating: "The suffering and inhumanity of the holocaust shouldn't be used for advertising purposes or gimmickry to promote a product, regardless of what it is."
