Best Sabaton Songs
As a listener with a taste for melodic songs, To Hell And Back is one of my "prototypes for a hit". A catchy (headbanging in other genres) rhythm, a strong melody and a contrasting song structure: that's all I wanted. This particular song has it all for me, so, though I reckon Sabaton has produced many good songs such as Shiroyama, Sparta, Metal Crüe or Back In Control, there's no debate for me. To Hell And Back is my favorite song of my favorite power metal band (excuse me, DragonForce).
Very catchy and a good melody. I love this song. I love the beginning it reminds me of one those stupid car commercial songs though, but it's still really good. I loveee this song though so I'm not complaining.
I cannot get over the epic (As per all Sabaton songs) instrumentals, chills always go down my spine. Amazing!
Gives a true sense of wonder about the deeds of the mentioned heroes. The power in this song gave me shivers
Second best Sabaton song after Bismarck. The Swedish version is the better one by far.
The lyrics are simply just powerful.
It's amazing how they get so much into character!
Swedish version of Carolus Rex is the best song sabaton have ever done.
Currently listening to it. It's like a musical history lesson.
This song, Ghost division, puts pure emphasis on how swift, effective, and efficient Erwin Rommel was, the Desert fox of Africa, and the winner of the first Tour de France is the General Robert E. Lee of his time, an amazing general, and soldier. but he fought for the wrong side of history, and is seen purely as the bad guy.
One of the more "metal" songs that I like. I has some great riffs and an awesome theme.
Enough metal to supply the Eiffel Tower for a whole year!
It was my first Sabaton song. Epic
Heavy metal brutes singing "for the grace, for the might of our lord"? What could beat that?
The one that made me discover Sabaton, and since then, I simply fall in love with the band !
It reminds me of Joan of Arc in a way (the refrain). It's still an excellent song.
The most musical, heartbreaking song so far from Sabaton!
Easily the best of the many EPIC songs by my favorite band Sabaton!
Primo Victoria must be 1st! It's the most Sabaton'ish song they made and has the best solo.
It's easily the most epic and powerful song ever made Period.
Classic, the first Sabaton Song I ever heard.
This song like Into the Fire is told from the perspective of an american soldier, only instead of the jungles of Vietnam, he is trapped in the Argonne forest as he and the rest of Liberty Division stand strong against the German attackers. Refusing to surrender, choosing Victory or Death. This battle is why the USA chooses Spartans as symbols of freedom. Because Spartans are the only other warrior that can hold that line in such horrid conditions.
The story is told along to a beat-bed of guns bayonets and pure Sabaton metal!
I love this song with my heart.
The chorus is so awesome
Absolutely amazing song, powerful lyrics that really moved me, very driving tone that really seems to put it away.
Should definitely be much higher than that. Truly an amazing song!
Night Witches is a story of extreme heroism and stealth.
The song that introduced me to Sabaton, still my fave!
With this song you really feel how crappy the battle of passchendaele ridge was, how brutal it was with the lines "6 miles of ground has been won, half a million men are gone"
Truly describes the horrors of WW1.
Gives me chills every time.
A great song that tells an amazing story. What more could you ask for from Sabaton?
A beautiful song for the men, women and children who fought for polish freedom.
Anything starting with "it is the nature of time," gains a few points from me.
Fast and strong, most bone-chilling lyrics I've heard.
This song is extremely catchy.
So hard decision but my top3, absolutely perfect melody and the topic is super good
A wonderful song.
This song is beautiful and perfect. I know the lyrics by heart (please don't ask me to sing) and it is made even better with scenes from World Of Warships Wargaming. An absolute masterpiece.
My favorite. Every time I hear it it's just amazing. I love the story of the Bismark and this song has such a good rhythm to it.
This song simply has a good feeling hanging over it, and the lyrics are great too.
Great song. Although it's new, it can definitely keep up with the old guard.
The story of the Screaming Eagles (the 101st Airborne division) was so fantastic, so action packed, and so brutal, that they not only made this song so metal you could supply Erwin Rommel for a year. But they made a show about the Battered Bastards of Bastogne! These guys held off the fury of the Wehrmacht at full throttle, something France, Poland, the UK, and even the USSR failed to do! The Battle of the Bulge is the battle in WWII where Germany started taking america seriously, because you don't hear anything like "the battered bastards of bastogne" for any other battle.
Bloody best! Coat of Arms was Sabaton's best album in my opinion, and Screaming Eagles is the best song from that album.
Screaming Eagles is an amazing song! Other great ones are
Ghost Division, Art of War, Price of a Mile, Coat of Arms, Uprising, Aces in Exile, Poltava and Far From the Fame
Simply the best. That's all I have to say.
This song is about the stand of a dutch battalion of soldiers, I'm still researching the battle but the soldiers held their ground against the German War-machine while it was at its best! and they even held back Rommel's Ghost Division. They made the Germans think they were a unit about 40 strong, but they were only a company! they laughed at the faces of their Nazi interrogators said they were turly the Boar vs. the Eagle, and they honnored their last orders, Resiste Et Mords, in English, Resist and Bite.
Fight all eighteen days of battles, no odds are on our side. Few will fight for hours until the bullets are gone.
Epic Lyrics, epic intro, epic chorus, epic story. This song has it all. Deserves top 5, if not #1.
Such a good song, makes me want to bite anyone who resists and thinks its bad!
Why the hell is this on place 34?!
Just totally badass.
The best song ever
For me the best...
This is a song about a moment in history unfortunately most historians choose to skip over! The Greco-Italian war is my absolute favorite part of WWII to learn about! This song is the song that brought me to the YouTube channel Sabaton History, that brought me to Indy Neidell, he gave me a massive interest in History, and a knack to learn more about it.
Greece holding off an entire axis power by themselves.
Call to arms banners fly in the wind,
For the glory of Hellas
Call to arms reading "freedom or death"
Blood of king Leonidas
The end of the third Reich draws near
It's time has come to an end
The end of an era is here
It's time to attack!
It was the first Sabaton song I've ever heard and it's just EPIC!
More patriotic than all of russian war songs combined.
Come on now at least top 5. Such power
Very few songs have made me shiver like this one, every single time ... A dark and blunt tale, a meaningful tribute to make sure we never forget
Since its musically really one of their all-time bests and the topic is so dark yet so important, this is my number 1 song of 'em all
Where war brings out both the good and bad in men, The Final Solution tells about the very worst event to have taken place within history. Also, lyrics and especially the chorus are amazing.
This is at 19, that should not be, not only is it one of the best songs from a musical perspective, but the subject matter sends shivers through your spine, propelling it up to top 5 at least.
The Spartans never surrendered, but this song makes me surrender my vote!
It's more accurate than most documentaries and they know it.
Among my friends and I this song inspired the most epic if totally dumb Age of Empires strategy. It basically became a meme for us. Also, the energy of the Chorus is just nuts.
The Ottomans would have won if they listened to this!
I want the chorus to play every time I walk into a room.
Come on, if there's a meme for it, it must be good.
This song puts EMPHASIS on how brutal the Soviets were to the Germans, in 1945 and how brutal the Germans were to the Soviets in 1942 onward.
Really underrated song.
This and Price of a Mile both excellently capture the tragedy of the War to End All Wars. It captures the lives lost, and truly how dreadful war is.
Who said Sabaton are belicists? Nothing speaks better of the horrors of war than this emotional song
A song that captures what it must have been like desperately fighting and Dying
Every time I read the name of this song the guitar at the beginning. And when I hear the song I immediately want to watch ZULU, a movie also about the battle of Rouke's Drift.
I just love the guitar work in the song its unlike most of the other ones
Love the guitar
I don't really understand the lyrics but the melody and singing is the best
I think this song should be up on the list. It is a great song and it is based off of a real person
I am voting this over Coat of Arms. I am Greek.
This song, if for some reason you haven't heard it, is told from the perspective of an American soldier during the Vietnam War. While Sabaton has Hundreds of songs about the World Wars, and hundreds more about periods after that. Sabaton only has one song about Vietnam, this being it. And holy crapola does it not disappoint! Just read the Lyrics and you know it's about 'Nam.
"I feel! My fire starts to burn! the heat! controlling my mind! Napalm! is burning us alive! within me the beasts final roar! Now I'm ready to strike!"
First Sabaton song that caught my attention. Great opening guitar riff. Catchy song. I like the way the lyrics tell the story from the point of view of a soldier as he lands in an unfamiliar land (Vietnam) and the horrors as his platoon is being ambushed and burned by napalm from their own planes. You get the feeling of what it would be like to be there. Great song.
Great opening guitar riff, great lyrics and vocals. I think that this one should definitely be in top 4. For me it is the best by Sabaton.
