The album includes six unreleased songs from "Reise, Reise" that had been omitted for artistic reasons, and five completely new ones. It was originally going to be titled "Reise, Reise Volume Two", but on August 18, 2005 the album was announced as "Rosenrot".cite web

The cover art is nearly identical to the Japanese import of "Reise, Reise". The image is a slightly altered photograph of the icebreaker USS "Atka", taken on March 13, 1960 at McMurdo Station, Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica.cite web

While Rammstein did not actively promote this album, the band built anticipation through a variety of means. The first single from the album, "Benzin", premiered at the Berliner Wuhlheide and was subsequently released on disc. Rammstein's official website featured one-minute samples from six of the tracks, and had featured a prominent release-date countdown. A brief section of the chorus from "Rosenrot" plays in the background of an e-card containing photographs of the band and basic album information. [cite web

On August 18, 2005, it was announced that "Benzin" would be the first video for Rosenrot. The "Benzin" video premiered on German MTV on Friday, September 16, 2005. In the video, all of the members of Rammstein except Flake play the role of reckless firemen driving a massive fire truck destroying things along the way. Flake does not appear until the end of the video as a man about to commit suicide by jumping off the roof of a tall building. The other band members open a life net for him but it ends up ripping. The video was shot in Berlin over three days in August 2005. It was directed by Uwe Flade.

The second video from the album, "Rosenrot", premiered on November 30, 2005 on MTV Germany. [cite web

] A streaming version of the video has been made available on Rammstein's [ official site] .

The third video, "Mann gegen Mann", was released on February 1 2006. It shows the band (genuinely) naked and utilizing their respective instruments to cover themselves, with the exception of Till, who is wearing a latex diaper, and sports an inverted mohawk haircut. The video switches between the band playing, and teeming masses of naked male bodybuilders. Towards the end, Till transforms into the demon that is portrayed on the cover.

When asked about up-coming music videos in a recent interview, it was mentioned that the next video will be for "Stirb nicht vor mir". [cite web

] The current status of the video's production is unknown, and it seems unlikely that it will be made since work for the "next" studio album is under way.
