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.

    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.

    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 !

    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
