Sabaton

Diesel 11

As you scream into the web of silence...
I nearly had a stroke, but it's only Sunden, who I don't care about. He can go fuck himself.

Swedish, English, doesn't matter what language it's in, it's one of the worst songs Sabaton has ever released.
I think the lyrical and thematical context is of utmost importance here. I do agree though, it does not work nearly as well in English.

Yeah, at least in Swedish it's something interesting, and I love the way the language sounds so that's a plus. But I think that "Livgardet" is a good idea on paper that just doesn't sound that great to me. It's emblematic of Sabaton's current lack of pushing themselves and quite honestly I would take the majority of Metalizer over this new song. I may be completely alone in this opinion, by the way, and I can understand those who do like it for musical and lyrical reasons but it's not for me.
