Sabaton History:
========= The Royal Guard LYRICS =========
From the frozen north they came
Fought for founding father’s claim
It was then, their tale, began
Trace their roots from 16 strong
By the king where they belong
En tid
Av Krig
Wherever he goes, near or far, they are close
For the King of Sweden they lay down their lives
For the Swedish crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard
Sworn protectors of the throne
Royal doctrine set in stone
For the crown, you shall give your life
By traditions from the past
Swedish soldiers stand steadfast
I frid
Och i strid
And if one should fall, yet another, heeds the call
For king and for country they lay down their lives
För Sverige i tiden
Dit konungen går
De gör vad som synes omöjligt, vad än framtiden spår
Still for the crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard
Recorded and mixed at Black Lounge studios by Jonas Kjellgren.

    I like this song but why in Music Video swedish soldiers fight with Ottomans

  • Gianlucca Rezzano

    The skirmish at Bender! Great song!

  • seces

    This ungratefulness 1-Ottomans helped him, provided a safe passage. What Swedish king did is clearly nothing but ingratitude. 2-Think about a king that lost the war then took refuge in another country. what a pathetic situation lol. 3-If the Ottomans wanted to kill Carolus, they could easily do it. Believe me, no guard could protect him. He was inside the Ottoman lands.

  • MobileRDS

    Everyone: Authors should make more infortmation available when they release or explose their product.. Sabaton: Hold my beer! AweSome! Yeah, there haven't beed swedish band I like since Abba. "Now, there are two of them. This is getting out of control!". ;) (Yeah, the platform kinda limits!)

    This is fucking epic. Both song and video. Swedish soldiers always were badass and crazy. From the ancient times, it was their tradition... They always fought like lions for what they believe. It's in their blood. And yeah, we had some "confrontations" back in the days, but still, hi from Russia !

    a great movie,but a quite strange-looking crown, like a theatrical prop (real Swedish crowns look much more impressive)

    Sabaton doesnt make music for fans or money. It's just an excuse to get funding for heavy duty LARP:ing in their music videos

    pro tip : if you can't make high quality cinematic videos , then don't make music video at all, and stick with music with lyrics , the song is mediocre at best and the video is very low quality and feels cheap , the emotions and reactions of the characters deeply looks fake and shallow , sorry sabaton but this time i have to say it, you want to know what i mean by high quality ? search : BISMARCK - sabaton

    The closest thing we have in the states to the Royal Guard is the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I hope someone can make an alternate set of lyrics and make a cover for it.

    "Dejlig er jorden " er skrevet af den danske digter B S Ingemann.. Så måske ikke lige koblingen mellem Sabaton og BS Ingemann - Melodien er tysk jf wiki.

    Its nice to hear how Sabaton used hymn books christmas song from Germany to tell tale of the royal guard of Sweden. I like this song but its weird to hear it from this awesome band

  • Camokid_ZA

    "500 years for the fatherland." The vibrato on "years" is just epic.

    I am Danish. And this song makes me think: "Wow, the last battle we fought with that country; is over 200 years ago..."

    • FowlManor

      @harbl99 Den mark and Sweden are like brothers; we fight over everything and nothing, mostly over Norway ;) There was that one time Russia tried to get in on the fun. Denmark and Sweden teamed up and told Russia to stay out of our private affairs aka. we beat them soundly.

    • harbl99

      In the good old days Sweden and Denmark used to go to war if there was nothing else happening that weekend.

    something ive noticed at the start of the video is that in the throne room theyve got that really cool looking plate knight armour which ive never seen before. Sabaton really try to get as much history in everython they do!


    What Ottomans?

    nope, this was not a good one sorry. maybe a good army regiment translated into english (i don't know) but as a metal song it just doesn't give me the shivers while listening. and the clip is beyond cringe, you all look like virgin geeks larping ffs. i was expecting waifu pillows showing up after the fight

    I don't understand what the video is about. I'm Turkish and as far as I know the Ottomans got along well with Sweden. The Ottomans even protected the swedish king who sought protection against the russians. You can look up the Battle of Prut. Can you guys inform me which historical event the clip is based on?

    Orig. Bernhard Severin Ingemann 1850, hymn book. Original in my language is called Earth so beautiful (Bright the sky of God). "Years pass fast, generations fade to oblivion, but brightly always, song of the souls, remain on the path to Heaven." Nice.
