These guys are at the very top, and show no sign of falling. The March To War 02:05 02. En livstid I Krig 12. Into the Fire 03:18 4. Obviously, their music has always been very catchy and vocal driven, but this album was their shortest at the time of its release, due to each track having a fairly short running time, and this leads to the album having an absolutely perfect flow, moving from one highlight to another, with only one track overstaying its welcome, and that's more because it's a slightly lackluster track compared to the rest, than it actually being overlong.
Rise of Evil 07:51 12. Diary of an Unknown Soldier 05. The Last Battle 3:12 12. While it's not a full scale concept album like Carolus Rex or The Art of War, the album does have a over arching concept, with each track being focused less on battles and more on individuals and squads who performed some particularly heroic deeds in battle. Resist And Bite 03:33 07. Coat of Arms 03:16 3.
The Beast Twisted Sister Cover 3:12 15. This is an album that's all about the flow, as it moves seamlessly from highlight to highlight, with no less than amazing moments on the entire album, and not even a single second is wasted. Following the comparatively more complex and ambitious Carolus Rex, Heroes is a very simple, very quick and to the point kind of album, clocking in at just under 37 minutes excluding bonus tracks, and it's definitely the kind of album that works best when played around 3-5 times in sitting, so the songs have enough time to pound their way into your head and never let up. Hail To The King 08. The title song is about the Stand of the Swiss Guard , which took place during the sacking of Rome on May 6th, 1527, when the Pope's Swiss guards held off troops loyal to the Habsburgs long enough for Pope Clement to escape. Lyrically, I find the album quite interesting, as instead of focusing on different themes or on one particular theme but scattered across different battles, this release tells a full story and does quite a great job of it, with some very emotional moments, and it even has the first ballad the band released since their demo days, which unsurprisingly manages to be one of the best and most powerful tracks on the album. Back In Control 3:15 08.
Cliffs of Gallipoli 06:34 6. Shortly after, they began work on what was meant to be their first full length album, titled Metalizer. Gott Mit Uns 03:30 10. Masters Of The World 12. To Hell and Back 06. Artist: Album: The Last Stand Released: 2016 Label: Nuclear Blast Catalog 27361 37340 Genre: , Country: Sweden Duration: 00:44:56 Tracklisting: 01. Diary Of An Unknown Soldier 0:52 05.
He ties in with Pär Sundström to create the foundation of the sound, a driving rumble that allows guitarists Thobbe Englund and Chris Rörland to either keep on the riff, solo independently or together. Название группы в переводе с английского означает латный ботинок, часть рыцарского доспеха. The March to War Intro 01:20 2. It gets extra points for mentioning Canada towards the end, and lyrically it's a pretty great track. Resist And Bite 6:36 06. It again has some nice lead guitars, while also being one of the lighter, more melodic and more keyboard driven tracks on the album, with of course another stunning chorus, an amazing guitar solo in the second half. The Art Of War 04:50 11.
En Livstid I Krig 5:44 5. Either way, it's a slow moving track with some awesome melodies and another extremely powerful and emotional performance from Joakim, with the chorus being one of the highlights of the album, and overall it's an amazing track, for sure. Soldier of 3 Armies 05:03 12. One track that sure doesn't come up short is the title track, which starts off with some pretty epic drums, and only gets better from there. Far From The Fame 10. It'll never be my favorite Sabaton album as it is for some people, but overall it's still a must hear for fans of the band and it's an excellent album with three of my all time favorites by the band. Into The Fire Live in Falun 2008 4:08 13.
It's probably my favorite of the last few songs on the album. Sun Tzu Says 0:24 02. Even Joakim attempts some slightly higher notes than normal and of course nails it, as always. Aces in Exile 06:05 5. As always, he's in very fine form here, with some of the track really bringing out his accent and making perfect use of his super deep, yet smooth voice. They are renowned for writing songs for fans to sing along with, but this is insane, and I love it! The Art Of War 5:09 04. It's certainly energetic, fun and super catchy, making it the perfect choice for a single, and it only gets better during the final run through at the end.
It may have taken me too many years to get across this album, but I am so very glad that I did, and if you enjoy metal then you should too. Light In The Black 4:52 09. It also feels odd that this the one and only track on the album to not be recorded in English, which is disappointing, because as someone who doesn't understand a word of Swedish, I can follow the entire rest of the album and then have no clue how the story ends, which is quite the letdown, indeed. Rise Of Evil 8:19 04. Far From The Fame 3:47 10. Camouflage Bonus Track 3:56 13.
