    Caroleans Prayer
    Killing Ground
    Long Live the King
    Smoking Snakes
    Bull
    Man of War

    Seriously? 4 votes for Inmate? :confused:
     
  2. Detective Beauregard

    Detective Beauregard Barrels of Rum! Black Powder!

    To me it just sort of plods along without a sense of purpose. It came down to Inmate vs. Smoking Snakes for me, and the latter got a vote.

    I think Night Witches and Soldier of 3 Armies own Heroes, with No Bullets Fly and Resist & Bite coming next. To Hell and Back and Far From the Fame are overrated for sure, but the former not so much that it deserves a vote just yet.

    I'm more bothered by @Perun's vote for Night Witches.
     
  4. Stardust

    Stardust A Blue Sector Mirage

    ...why is Killing Ground/Ett Slag Färgat Rött still in the poll? Wasn't that song eliminated? And also The Carolean's Prayer/Karolinens Bön.

    My opinion on "Carolus Rex" has vastly improved compared to last Survivor.

    Dominium Maris Baltici - I honestly miss this one every time I listen to this album. Does it even exist?
    The Lion From The North - Cool song but they did this chorus a million times. Everything else is great, but the chorus really brings it down a notch.
    Gott Mit Uns - Best song from this album and one of their best overall. Kinda cooler live when the guitarists sing the verses.
    A Lifetime Of War - This one's actually pretty epic. Awesome chorus.
    1648 - I have a strong sense of deja vu when it comes to this song... If I ignore it, it's a pretty good song.
    The Carolean's Prayer - I'm mostly indifferent about this one, but the choir part is epic as fuck.
    Carolus Rex - I grew to love this song, but I don't think it's their best song. Think it's missing a faster part for that.
    Killing Ground - Another solid song, highlight is the chorus soloing.
    Poltava - "Listen..." parts are so cheesy, but this is another good song, particularly the chorus.
    Long Live The King - Epic song. Pre-chorus with the choir is awesome.
    Ruina Imperii - This one is also epic. Wish they did more songs in this vein (slower songs with lots of choirs) than rehashed songs like Lion and 1648.
    Harley From Hell - Shit.

    Overall: I don't think it's their best album (still far weaker than first 3), but now I think it's better than Coat Of Arms, which kind of sounds rushed/unfinished in comparison.

    I also like this album much more than before. I guess the initial disappointment wore off :)

    Night Witches - Pretty intense opening song. I would say it's a combo of Ghost Division and Midway stylistically, although a finished song unlike the latter.
    No Bullets Fly - Good song, nothing more though. Chorus sounds kinda Priest-ish.
    Smoking Snakes - Everything in this song is great apart from the verses which are quite generic, which is a shame.
    Inmate 4859 - Awesome ballad, even though the lyrics are super cheesy... but at least they didn't namedrop the guy in question :D
    To Hell & Back - Best song on the album! Spiritual sequel of Gott Mit Uns with equally silly lyrics :D
    The Ballad Of Bull - I actually like this one and don't get the hate it gest. It's a bit Eurovision-ish sure, but I think it's way more inspired than songs #2 and #3. It's ridiculously catchy too.
    Resist & Bite - This one is also pretty awesome, altho I gotta start criticizing the album a bit: songs are way too short. Only two songs pass the 4 minute mark.
    Soldier Of 3 Armies - Solid song, but I cringe every time they do namedrops.
    Far From The Fame - Namedropping in the chorus is so cringey. I don't understand why they have to do it so much. Otherwise an awesome song but the namedrop is so irritating.
    Hearts Of Iron - Fucking awesome song. Chorus is epic as fuck. Kind of wish there was a more buildup at the beginning to make this song a true epic which it really can't be at 4:28. Weird that it was never played live.
    Man Of War - No.

    Voting for Poltava, Bullets, Snakes, Soldier and that last one.

    When free time burns
    The finals solution
    Survivors fade away and all updates turn to dust

    Seriously, only 2 weeks or so and then I can fool around here all I want :p

    You'll probably get bored and go for Schn3iders instead.

    Sparta - This is very generic.
    Last Dying Breath - This one's better. I'll give it a pass due to the topic of the song, even though it's also super generic.
    Blood Of Bannockburn - I don't particularly like the style of this song, but at least it's something new.
    Diary Of An Unknown Soldier - Why?
    The Lost Battalion - OK this one is awesome. I like the concept of replacing drums with weapon samples. Decent chorus too.
    Rorke's Drift - Rehashed. Heard this all before.
    The Last Stand - Enjoyable, but also heard this all before.
    Hill 3234 - Same as the previous song tbh.
    Shiroyama - Same as the previous 2 songs tbh.
    Winged Hussars - This chorus annoys me and the song is also a giant rehash.
    The Last Battle - I kind of lost focus here.

    Overall: The weakest album so far.
    Much rehash
    Such boring
    Wow

    Voting for Bullets, Soldier, Sparta, Breath, Diary, Drift, Stand, Hussars and Battle.
