Primo Victoria was shown to the world at 2005.
The CD contains nine songs, all of them are very well written and even better played. The whole CD contains power metal, wich in one moment is closer to Melodic Power Metal
, in the next to Gothic Power Metal
and in the other moment to Hard
Joakim's Brodén's voice combined with this kind of music and the war atmosphere gives a unearthly result.
The lyrics on the CD are a big tribute for the allied forces in the World War
II, the allie soldiers are shown in a poetical, almoust gothic way.
The title "Primo Victoria" tells us the story about sixth of june nineteen forty four - the landing of the allied forces on the shores of normandy, but not only...
"Primo Victoria" was thought also to be the first album of Sabaton
(a few years before 2005, but the record company didn't bring the plan to reality).
"Primo Victoria"-was meant to be Sabaton
's first great victory as a band...
All the songs on the CD are about war or things that can be put on the same shelf.
Saying "about war" I mean the wars of the XX-th century: "Primo Victoria", "Reign Of Terror
", "Panzer Battalion
", "Stalingrad", "Into The Fire
", "Purple Heart
but thre is also "Counterstrike", which tells us the story of the war between the allied forces of Syria and Jordan atacking Israel and "Metal Machine
"-this track is the ending of the CD, the song is a metaphore of the autor himself as the title "Metal
My own opinion: Very good music, lyrics that Shakespeare would be proud of and That Voice
To sum up, very good album.
