Review

Military history-loving Sabaton have released their tenth studio album, The War to End All Wars. The band's crunchy power metal sound, including the distinctive rolling growls of front man Joakim Broden, is intact but this time I hear some electronic sounds beyond the typical keyboards the band has employed in the past. Take "Soldier of Heaven," which leans in the direction of bands like Beast in Black though not nearly as egregiously (and I still sang along every time it came on). Fret not, this is the exception, not the rule, and songs like "Stormtroopers," "The Valley of Death" and "Hellfighters" are classic Sabaton power metal, flying along with catchy choruses that will suck you in. Overall, The War to End All Wars is probably the most accessible album in Sabaton's catalog thus far and I can see why some of the reviews I've read have trashed it. The complaints vary, but were these people NOT expecting Sabaton to be cheesy and over the top? It's what they do and why they can be so entertaining. The War to End All Wars is by no means innovative by Sabaton standards (hell, it is their second album dealing with World War I), but if you have enjoyed their combination of crunch, melody, and history lessons in the past, you will find something to like.
