Alright, so after spending a fine evening listening to The Last Stand, I have to say I was not disappointed from start to finish.
It's been a while since I've done an album review so I thought why not write one for Sabaton's new album?
Just like previous reviews I have done, this one is just going to be based on the music. I would have to do a ton of research if I wanted to go into detail about the story each of these songs tell, and frankly I don't feel motivated to do that for an album review when I like to talk about the music itself. But, when the time comes to feature a song from this album for Metal Monday, then I'll go into depth about the story behind the song as well!
I always believed they would come back, and they did. Last summer Sabaton suddenly came back into my life when they announced a new album. The first single was released and that was my jam from June to late August. I don't know what it was, but somehow that was the summer I became a more devoted fan and eventually they entered deeper into my heart. Thus, my love for power metal has been significantly high.
So, I told myself that one day they will return soon, and this time I would be ready. Last night, I certainly was ready, and went to hell and back with no regrets.
I felt like I was the only person who wore full Sabaton gear. Nobody else at the venue seemed to be wearing the pants or the wristband. But I got a few compliments that I looked like one of them!
It was raining hard when we arrived at the venue and stood behind the sound system again. Due to it being a sold out show and late arrival, I had no interest in going to the floor. Large crowds spell bad news if you're no…
Well, here I am post-gig after Sabaton last night with a sore throat but a happy heart. It felt like only yesterday that I scored a ticket and the gig came up so fast. I had placement to focus on and almost forgot that it was happening until I had more free time.
I greatly looked forward to seeing them as they are one of those bands holding a special place in my heart, and now, it's my third time. I spent the whole morning and afternoon doing homework, and when I ran out of things to do, I found myself lying around staring at the ceiling waiting until it was close to the time where I could get ready.
Yes it is officially a tradition, I will always wear the complete gear to every Sabaton gig from now on. Fully prepared for battle! Actually, earlier that day I had a nice conversation with whoever runs their Facebook page (probably the webmaster...I think his name is Krister, or maybe it's someone else). I commented saying I was wea…
