Sabaton - 'Christmas Truce' (Animated Story Video)

Silence
Oh I remember the silence
On a cold winter day
After many months on the battlefield
And we were used to the violence
Then all the cannons went silent
And the snow fell
Voices sang to me from no man's land

We are all
We are all
We are all
We are all friends

And today we're all brothers
Tonight we're all friеnds
A moment of peace in a war that nеver ends
Today we're all brothers
We drink and unite

Now Christmas has arrived and the snow turns the ground white
Hear carols from the trenches
We sing the Holy Night
Our guns laid to rest on the snowflakes
A Christmas in the trenches
A Christmas on the front far from home

Madness

How I remember the sadness
We were hiding our tears
In a foreign land where we face our fears
We were soldiers
Carried the war on our shoulders
For our nations
We stand and we bury our friends

We were all
We were all
We were all
We were all friends

And today we're all brothers
Tonight we're all friends
A moment of peace in a war that never ends
Today we're all brothers
We drink and unite
Now Christmas has arrived and the snow turns the ground white

Hear carols from the trenches
We sing the Holy Night
Our guns laid to rest on the snowflakes
A Christmas in the trenches
A Christmas on the front far from home

We were all
We were all
We were all
We were all friends

And today we're all brothers
Tonight we're all friends
A moment of peace in a war that never ends
Today we're all brothers
We drink and unite
Now Christmas has arrived and the snow turns the ground white

A Christmas on the frontline
We walk among our friends
We don't think about tomorrow
The battle will commence
When we celebrate Christmas
We thought about our friends
Those who never made it home
When the battle had commenced

Ο δίσκος των Sabaton "The War to End All Wars"
Μία... ενδεκάδα full length albums θα συμπληρώσουν τον Μάρτιο του νέου έτους οι Sabaton. "The War to End All Wars" ο τίτλος του διαδόχου του "The Great War" που κυκλοφόρησε πρόπερσι. Ανάμεσα στα ένδεκα τραγούδια του δίσκου υπάρχει κι ένα ("Christmas Truce") που αναφέρεται στα Χριστούγεννα. Και ποια η καταλληλότερη περίοδος για να κυκλοφορήσει ως single; Στη σημερινή ανάρτηση θα παρακολουθήσουμε το (animated) βίντεο με την ιστορία που ενέπνευσε το τραγούδι. Πρόκειται για την περιβότητη "Ανακωχή των Χριστουγέννων".

Παραμονή Χριστουγέννων 1914. Στα πεδίο μάχης στην περιοχή Ιπρέ του Βελγίου οι Γερμανοί στρατιώτες αρχίζουν να... στολίζουν το δικό τους χαράκωμα. Ανάβουν κεριά και αρχίζουν να τραγουδούν Χριστουγεννιάτικα τραγούδια. Οι Άγγλοι στρατιώτες απαντούν με τον ίδιο τρόπο. Κάποιος έκανε το μεγάλο βήμα να ξεμυτίσει από το χαράκωμα. Κάπως έτσι (εν συντομία) επήλθε η "Ανακωχή των Χριστουγέννων" (κόντρα στις ηγεσίες των δύο χωρών), η οποία κορυφώθηκε με.... ποδοσφαιρικό αγώνα. Οι δύο πλευρές γιόρτασαν τα Χριστούγεννα, χαλάρωσαν κάποιες ώρες από την ένταση του πολέμου και... επανήλθαν στο καθήκον...
