The most epic band in the world returns with a very good live album that gives the listener a small glimpse into their live performance magic. Having seen Sabaton live multiple times, the band always delivers a brilliant live set and this is excellently captured in this 2DVD/CD release. With the audio part of this release featuring 16 tracks, the listener is fully immersed into the band’s live production quality and antics.
After setting the mood with “The March to War”, the band delivers a brutal hit with an epic combo of “Ghost Division”, “To Hell and Back” and the brilliant “Carolus Rex”. The band’s live sound has always been amazing and this is perfectly captured as they deliver “No Bullets Fly” and “Resist and Bite”. While we are only treated to an audio experience on the CD, we can totally imagine Joakim running around and goofing off with his band mates as the songs are played.
Having a plethora of awesome songs, the band steamrolls the crowd with renditions of “The Art of War”, ”Soldier of 3 Armies” and “Swedish Pagans”. Never letting the intensity down or the crowd to settle in, Sabaton keeps everybody engaged from start to finish. As you can expect, the release closes with “Primo Victoria” and “Metal Crüe”. Overall, the CD portion of the band’s live release is pretty awesome and surely complements the awesomeness of their live DVD’s. We highly recommend this for any fan of the band, or anybody that likes epic music.
