Sabaton (colorized german WWII footage)

Called my son last night to see what he was up to. He has one final which is a hacking assignment (He is a CS major with a specialization in cybersecurity). He has to get in and get out of some system and is timed. I asked how he was mentally prepared. He said he had a song play list set up that helped his mind with the job. He uses techno for coding, Classic rock (Pink Floyd, the Who, King Crimson, the Outlaws, etc) for AI type problems and for hacking he uses Nightwish (thanks to the files) and Sabaton. I asked who was Sabaton, he said like Nightwish but they have a war theme. He said he would send me what he was listening to when he broke the system.
Well, at 1:36 am, I received this:

There is a lot of good heavy metal out there, but sadly its mostly in Europe. Sabaton is one of the great bands. Saw them locally 4 years ago during their "Heroes" tour in a small venue (with terrible acoustics) playing with Nightwish & Delain. Nightwish was the headliner, but Sabaton almost stole the entire show. They're great musicians and really know how to work the crowd. This July they have a new album coming out called "The Great War", but you may be interested to know they also have a "Sabaton History" channel that you can find here.

Here is their entire performance at a 2017 festival. Note the tank they have as a stage prop for the drummer.

If you wish to purchase any of their music, they have a Bandcamp store here:

Keep it heavy. \m/

I didn't realize the band formed in 1991. My son when he was a little guy (4-5) he loved the Johnny Horton songs (Sink the Bismark and Battle of New Orleans). He loves Sabaton he said because they talk about history. ( I see they did one about the German pilot that escorted the B-17). He sent this to me.

I'm not a metal head - but when something comes out that is noteworthy, I WILL PAY ATTENTION. Sabaton is one.

Since this discussion is METAL - and not the forged/cast debate, I'd been intrigued by The HU. They are an indigenous Mongolian group. Use traditional Mongolian instruments "metalized" and even roll some unusual polyphonic "throat singing." They are just catching on. They'd signed with a management team and are starting a world tour this year.

Their musical style doesn't easily get pigeonholed into typical metal forms.

I picked up Nightwish from here on the files and got my son listening and then he turns around and sends me Sabaton, so I returned the favor and sent him the Hu (from the files). I listen to a lot of different things, the only thing I don't listen to is Rap crap and modern C&W.

Is this Mr. Sabaton, pro war or anti war? I don't get it. Why would he be fascinated with WWII video, and adapt his noise to it?

I guess he never read Plato. It is pretty bad noise for sure.

It seems they are honoring the men that fought the good fight. They have one on Verdun, they will not cross this line which pays tribute to the French. They have another about the polish army fighting the Germans in 39. If you read the blogs one thing for sure, it gets young men to read up on their history.

That is terrible.

Slayer stands the test of time.

Something about glorifying nazi , plus i expect the majority of those soldiers were all killed, especially going east.
