Ok…full disclosure here on this one.  I have never been a big listener of Vader…in fact I have never really listened to them at all.  I think many years ago I tried and what I heard was just not for me.  It just seemed the only thing Vader oriented I was going to like was going to be Darth Vader.

Well we have a new Vader album up for release titled ‘Tibi Et Ingi’ and as fate would have it I happened to come across the song ‘Triumph of Death’ they have been floating around to build up hype for the album and for some reason I decided to click play.  When hearing the song I was really blown away and thought, ‘WOW!  What have I been missing!  I have to check this album and band out!  Luckily I have access to the promo and I immediately downloaded my digital copy and gave it a spin…and was somewhat…let down.

Well ‘The Satanist’ finally dropped.  The highly anticipated new album from Behemoth had been delayed at one point but now it is finally here.  I know there has been a lot of anticipation for this album in the metal community and though I cannot claim to be a Behemoth acolyte I always thought from an imagery perspective (i.e. The ‘Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel’ video is fantastic and should be a art noir horror movie) they had a great artistic style and I always viewed their stuff with admiration.  With that being said can a non-black metal guy like me appreciate what ‘The Satanist’ has to offer?   In many ways yes I can.

Music Review: Sabaton CD: SWEDISH EMPIRE LIVE

                Ah Sabaton…how I love thee so.  The great war machine known as Sabaton rolls forever on enchanting listeners with their unique blend of power metal and war history.  So, now the boys from Sweden have given us their first live recordings of some of their classic tunes with ‘Swedish Empire Live’ from their extremely successful tour supporting their latest album ‘Carlous Rex’.  The live album was recorded at Poland’s massive metal festival Woodstock which boasts crowds as large as 900,000 people.  Being honorary Polish citizens, for writing the song ‘40:1’, Woodstock’s massive audience seemed the logical choice to record this album.

So let’s get down to brass tacks shall we.  How does Sabaton sound live?  In studio, bands can sound like a well oiled machine of death while live they suck shit.  Do Sabaton fall into this category or do they bring the metal machine to the head banging trenches ready to destroy!  Well strap on your helmet, grab your rifle and bayonets and find out what the price of a mile really is!
