I've been waiting months for this to be released, and it's worth it. There's the jumping up and down primo victories type To Hell and Back, Resist and Bite, Night Witches looks definitely a shout at being able to match Ghost Division as a concert opener, and they've done a reworking of 7734 from Metalizer, kin of a Devin Townsend/Kingdom type way where they breathe new life into an old song. Buy it!

Crikey, this is a tub thumping chest beater of an album. Proper manly stuff and no room for wimps that's for sure. This is only my second Sabaton album and to be honest the other didn't grab me for whatever reason. However, I have to say that this one has managed to stick itself to my playlist pretty comprehensively over the last few days.

As per their other albums the theme is war. Given the human history it allows a large scope for expression and Sabaton seem to be ploughing a good furrow through it. Of course heavy metal does lend itself to the subject perfectly so hardly a surprise there.

Sabaton have created a very heavy record that's packed full of catchy chorus's, thundering riffs and tunes that worm into your brain. Singing is suitably forceful but not at all shouty. The singer can hold a note and a tune well with a deep and clear voice.

I guess this could almost fall into the 'Power Metal' genre but thankfully avoids the sword and sorcery imagery that other bands use.

Simply a great heavy metal album and Sabaton should be justifiably proud of their efforts.

Sabatons' latest offering is another fine slice of history in the making for them.

To keep it short, song like 'Night Witches', detailing the famous female-led Russian Night Bomber regiment of World War II and the frankly quite brilliant 'To Hell and Back', a song honouring Americas' most decorated soldier, Audie Murphy, will keep you listening to this album for a good long while.

it might not be there best album but I still loved it and I await the day Sabaton will come back to the UK for another gig and I will be waiting expectantly for these tracks to blast my eardrums bloody with their sheer brilliance.

This album really does pack a punch, it's like Sabaton were injected with pure adrenaline whilst recording. The songs are powerful and the melodies are catchy (as always), it will leave you in awe. There are no fillers in this album, every song is strong and has true meaning due to it telling the stories of true 'heroes'.

Something worth noting* this is the first album with their new drummer Hannes van Dahl. And what can I say, I am really impressed with his drumming it really sounds 'Sabaton' and he is a real addition to the already outstanding band line-up.

Sabaton are pioneers in music involving military history and they are clearly passionate in this area. I would very much like to see this band live as they bring tanks and pyro on stage with them ;).

If you want some Bombastic Power Metal this will blast you away!

Skål Sabaton!

got this cd in post this morning and it's not been off since! Only recently became familiar with Sabaton - firstly Carolus Rex, which was until today my favourite but Heroes is brilliant! musically great as always but the content of the lyrics is superb - this album definitely stands out ( being a book format slightly larger than regular cd it does this literally as well). In the forward the band state 'Mission Accomplished' - it certainly is .this will be my favourite album for a long time - look forward to their next one but really don't know how they will equal let alone better this one . my advice to anyone reading this is - listen, enjoy and buy . THANK YOU SABATON

Powerful melodies, thundering drums and great lyrics. The album deals with military heroes, but the lyricist does not take sides. A hero is a hero even if he fights in a war created by politicians for the wrong reasons. The songs are mostly short and fast, no unnecessary fillings here.The writer clearly has read his military history; the stories are real. As an infantryman (serving in the FDF) my favourite song is, of course, "Soldier Of 3 Armies", about one of our own great warriors: the legendary Lauri Törni aka Larry Thorne. Thanks to Sabaton, no longer an unsung hero. I had never heard of this group before I bought this album, but now I'm a fan.

Another fantastic album from Sabaton. I always enjoy their use of historical events in their music and this succeeds again. Will be seeing them live in November and can't wait to hear these in person.

Edited my comment about their CD. It's not setup with multiple available file formats as I believed, it's just been so long since I stuck an audio CD into my PC that I didn't realise Dolphin in Arch Linux now automatically does that for audio CDs.

I received my limited edition copy of this album today, and I have to say that it is another epic Sabaton masterpiece. Some say Sabaton do not vary their style enough; however, why change a winning formula? Personally, as someone knowing every Sabaton song in detail, I can say that there are one or two brief moments that sound like earlier Sabaton songs, but these last no loner than a few seconds here and there. Every song is fundamentally fresh and original, yet still irrefragably Sabaton.

There are no nasty surprises, no irritating growling or "experimentation", just non-stop heavy metal/power metal. There is a ballad, but it is a very emotional and powerful one, therefore good enough to be included on the album. As a whole, this album is faster than Carolus Rex (their previous album), and is more like Coat of Arms. Each song deals with a different wartime heroic individual, hence the title of the album. As always Sabaton are very educational! And as always, I can highly recommend this album for all Sabaton fans, and indeed any fan of metal!
