Sabaton History:
========= The Royal Guard LYRICS =========
From the frozen north they came
Fought for founding father’s claim
It was then, their tale, began
Trace their roots from 16 strong
By the king where they belong
En tid
Av Krig
Wherever he goes, near or far, they are close
For the King of Sweden they lay down their lives
For the Swedish crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard
Sworn protectors of the throne
Royal doctrine set in stone
For the crown, you shall give your life
By traditions from the past
Swedish soldiers stand steadfast
I frid
Och i strid
And if one should fall, yet another, heeds the call
For king and for country they lay down their lives
För Sverige i tiden
Dit konungen går
De gör vad som synes omöjligt, vad än framtiden spår
Still for the crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard

      @Goblin Slayer We in Poland have mixed feelings about the Swedish soldiers after the Swedish invasion of Poland in the 17c. Officially the losses were larger than WWI and WWII combined. We never recovered since then as a European power :-(((

    I love your music, I'm 14 now, but anyone at my age I know doesn't listen to metal... My generation is rotted, everyone listens to rap and hip-hop, it makes me kinda sick, we need more bands like you.

    Hello sabaton band: I’m from mainland China. I played and quoted your song as a work of "How I Understand Patriotic Values" for an exhibition in our school’s music discussion today. As a result, I assimilated a large group of students into spiritual Swedish "This is simply Sweden's national treasure metal band" This is the evaluation of our class teacher

    In the interest of nitpicking. The firearms in this video are anachronistic. The percussion cap was introduced in the beginning of the 1800s while the Skirmish at Bender that the video seems to depict took place in 1713. Flintlocks would have been the order of the day.

    A question to all you historians listening. In the lyrics the line "Crushing blow at Narva dealt" is referring to what battle? I googled it and what I found was a battle in 1944 between Germany and Russia. Is it referring to that or another battle?

    I don't get it, why have them be turks that are attacking? The Swedes and Turks were more often neutral with each other and at best of times temporary allies against poland and catholic powers of Europe.

    SMASHING, CRUSHING, INSPIRING, AN ABSOLUTE BATTERING RAM. Anyone marching into battle with this song in their ears would be invincible...I want it played at my funeral....when there is a battle left that can claim my life. Because this miserable world has yet to provide me a foe worthy of my consideration, but now I have another anthem to ring in my ears as I smash my way to oblivion.

    The Swedish version is better but the video for the second one is better. Although I have to ask why Arabic looking soldiers are storming the Swedish throne room. I don't recall anything like that ever happening in Swedish history. I believe the last time Stockholm was conquered was in Vasa's time but those don't look like Danes to me.

    I think this is just a alternate sweden, where ''oldists'', or people that wanted technology, to go back to 1700, and, its a monarchy, and at this point, theres also another group, swedish jihadists, which islam spread due to refugees flooding in, and, theyd fight at the old swedish palace in 2500 (for the footage, E.)
