Sabaton - 'The Lion From The North' (official lyric video)

A time of religion and war,
Legends tell the tale of a lion
This beast in the shape of a man,
With a dream to rule sea and land

And all those who stand in his way,
Will die, by God and victorious arms
With the righteous that follows him south,
Once more, set ashore, to war

Legends have taught, battles fought,
This lion has no fear at heart
Lion come forth, come from the north,
Come from the no-o-o-o-orth

Gustavus! Adolphus!
(Gustavus Adolphus go forth, libera, impera)
Libera et impera!
Acerbus et ingens!
(Acerbus et ingens leo, libera, impera)
Augusta per augusta

A storm over Europe unleashed,
Dawn of war, a trail of destruction
The power of Rome won’t prevail,
See the catholics shiver and shake

The future of warfare unveiled,
Showed the way, that we still walk today
Der Löwe aus Mitternacht comes,
Once more, he is here, for war

Stories of old, truth unfold,
Control over Europe he holds
Freedom he’ll bring,
Lion and king, lion and king

Mighty eagle rule alone
Liberator claim the throne
Lion from the northern land
Take the scepter from its hand
Oh, oh, oh you lion from the north,
Ooooooooh you lion from the north

Sabaton - 'Carolus Rex'
Πριν από δέκα χρόνια, στα τελειώματα της άνοιξης του 2012, κυκλοφορούσε το έκτο (6ο) full length album των Sabaton υπό τον τίτλο "Carolus Rex". Ο δίσκος ήταν concept (με ενιαία θεματολογία δηλαδή) και αναφέρεται στην Σουηδική αυτοκρατορία (γι' αυτό και ζήτησαν την συνδρομή του ιστορικού Bengt Liljegren) και ηχογραφήθηκε σε δύο γλώσσες: την μητρική τους (Σουηδικά) και στα Αγγλικά. Το σχετικό δελτίο τύπου αναφέρει:

«Recorded in two separate versions -English and Swedish- this album is considered by many to be Sabaton’s masterpiece. It is the band’s most epic album to date, telling with historical accuracy the history of the Swedish Empire - from its beginning in 1611 to its collapse more than a century later during the reign of King Charles XII, after whom the album is named.»

Το album "Carolus Rex" επανακυκλοφόρησε το 2018 (ως Platinum Edition), ενώ "ξαναβγήκε" και φέτος (τον περασμένο Μάιο) σε cd και διπλό βινύλιο. Στην παρούσα ανάρτηση θα παρακολουθήσουμε το lyric video του τραγουδιού "The Lion From The North", για το οποίο η Σουηδική μπάντα μας λέει:

«Known as the 'Lion From The North', King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden was a pioneer of modern warfare and statesmanship. He laid the foundations for the Swedish Empire and influenced many elements of the modern Swedish state. After his death, he was given the formal title of Gustav Adolf the Great.»
