Sabaton - 40:1

Artist: Sabaton
Song: 40:1
Album: Art Of War
Now, I'm not a big fan of war and all that, but the lyrics in this song are really powerful. It's about the Battle Of Wizna where under 1000 Poles defended a fortified line against 40 000 Germans for three days.
The powerful music helps very much in the delivery of the lyrics. The drumming is great and the way they accent some lines by having backup vocals and guitar riffs along with the main vocals.
Nice guitar solo too. Nothing too special, but it works.
My feelings on the lyrics are a bit mixed. On one side they're sad, but on the other side they are epic.
"So come, bring on all that you've got
Come hell, come high water, never stop
Unless you are 40 to 1
your lives will soon be undone" 
I hope you like it :)


  1. Only music makes me proud of being Polish. Sabaton does that job very well. :)
