What's yours is mine and what's mine is mine too
Sure, it's a good subject matter.
I think the guitar sound on Bismarck and Fields off Verdun is greatly improved, but that matches up with my opinion of them live too since adding Tommy. Quite frankly, he's a better guitarist than Thobbe. I am of the opinion that a lot of the blandness of the past two albums was caused by 1) the newness of most of the band giving more power to the simpler concepts that I think are favoured by Pår, and 2) those musicians being not as talented (specifically the guitars).
Bismarck is very audibly laden with callbacks to CoA/AoW era Sabaton, and that's a very positive thing. The album release will tell us if there's more interesting things happening.
I agree with you completely. I'm also excited for what he does with his own band, which has been renamed Majestica.Tommy is a ludicrously better guitarist than Thobbe and a far superior singer. I honestly hope that he gains more creative control in the band and starts writing more complicated riffs while also providing some high backing vocals.
