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.

    • Not my kind of track, sorry. Sounds very generic.

    • you guys look badass

    • All i have to say about this is that i'm waiting for the history video

    • @Manty when that time comes you can't find any of them :)

    • This guard should protect Sweden now from the migrants.

  • swedish metal bands: its a great honor die for the crown latin metal bands: get us out from latin america please

  • 4:19 у меня мурашки на этом моменте

  • Want a song about the battle of Narvik!!!😁😁😁

  • 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

  • Got tears in my eyes here. And i am not even swedish. This song is amazing


  • In most clips, probably my grand grand father killed by sabaton or other forces :) No worries tho i like videos

  • The swedish version of this song is just the same guys coming back from a good fight, blood still on them. Fighting makes you hungry.

  • 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?

  • I look at this song and think 'you had WAY too much fun making the video for this version'

  • Okay. Amazing song and all but where the hell came those janissaries from in sweden?!

  • First time hearing this and i know the words wtf 😂, sabaton go ham.. and have made some fuckin wicked music 💯🤟

  • i listen to this song whenever i crusade in games and i feel like a fucking god whenever so

  • 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.

  • Visited Sweden a while ago and most of its museum, this is the pinnacle of teaching this country's history. Thank you, hope to see you soon in Switzerland for a concert !

  • Can't wait till the next album drops.

  • in real turc and swedish is allies

  • Based

  • They never made a song from the view of the muslim resistance across the history. For example the algerian resistance agains france colonaisers or the resistance of palaestinans agains the british. Prey weard how they only show one side....but they still a talented

  • Bästa låten som jag har hört och en av er hedrar aspeboda ❤️👍🏼🤟🏻

  • Amazing

  • Does Joakims knee hurt?

  • Ottoman? Like....Islamic?

  • me: oh sweet a new song to learn the words to and sing along to on road trips. (hears swedish parts in the song) also me: well looks like i'm summoning a demon while attempting to sing in swedish now.

  • Make a song about the Yamato Pls!!!!! Also sub to Sabaton!!!!!!

  • Any war was this?

  • For the King of Sweden! \--------/ I\ [N И] II / /I\ \ : / /I\ \ II I I I \ \/ / I \ \ II I:=I l-----------l l..IIE) Ш / /\ \ U I I I I I I I I \ / \ / IIIh IIIh

  • Do you really think sweden can beat the ottoman? Add: Turks are not Arabs. stop showing like this

    • It is from the incident at Bender, Sweden and the Ottoman Empire where allies but there was some complications. Afterwards they where still friends.

  • YOUNG TURKS 🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷


  • 🇵🇱🇵🇱

  • Basis of this song is a swedish/finnish "church song" don't know what it's in english but here in Finland we call them VIRSI and I'm not familiar with the swedish version or but here's Tarja Turunen singing the finnish version

  • Never thought I would see "Dejlig er Jorden" turned into power rock. Neat.

  • I just became Swedish patriot

    • It's pretty normal

  • long live our royal band

  • Bork

  • And this is why the royal guard gets twice as much training than the army does, to defend, DER FATHERLAND!

    • That is German, in Swedish Fosterlandet, eller Fäderneslandet.

  • Don’t mind me, just getting hyped for the next song

    • @Sabaton I absolutely loved it, one of my new top favorites

    • Did you like it?

    • aren't we always

  • When you buy the vinyl for it than realized there's only 800 made so you don't wanna even open it

  • First song I heard from Sabaton was sabateurs. Ever since then I have really enjoyed the music. As for the video great job. Truly brings out ones patriotism.

    • Thank you for appreciating our music!

  • Can somebody please explain which event us happening in the video please?

    • As Gustav writes the video is about that incident but the song, the lyrics, is about the Regiment.

    • The Skirmish at bender

    • I don't believe its any particular event. As far as I'm aware, the Swedish had very few interactions with Turkic/Arabic nations in war, other than a select few run-ins with the Ottomans

  • i hope someone playing solo guitar on middle of war 😁

  • Ok, now I need to add a musket in my collection, for.....reasons

  • this is cinema quality

  • Heres a war themed song in the spirit of Sabaton

  • Every time Sabaton makes a song about certain groups of soldiers or people, they always manage to make me feel the camaraderie, loyalty, courage and trust that they must have had for each other. Royal Guardsmen, Caroleans, 12th Army, 77th, Swiss Guard, Chasseurs Ardennais, Devil Dogs, all of them. Thank you again for bringing the stories of all these different people to life through your amazing music, fellow Scandinavians! 👍

  • This shall be Sweden's new National Anthem!

  • Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature! O Thou of God and man the Son! Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor! Thou my souls Glory, Joy, and Crown!

    • @Jason Moyer I didn't realize, that's epic. I just heard the chorus and had to find that old hymn. Good music like this is timeless.

    • Also, the tune (while recognizable as “Fairest Lord Jesus”) is even older and considered the “Crusaders Hymn”. Too perfect.

    • Knew I recognized that chorus! It was bugging me, thanks for reminding me of the origin.

  • Me and my wife got our tickets for the upcoming san antonio show. Looking foreward to seeing you guys live

  • I love your music, I'm 14 now, but anyone at my age I know doesn't listen to metal... My generation is rotted, everyone listens to rap and hip-hop, it makes me kinda sick, we need more bands like you.

    • Thank you for appreciating our music!

    • @Sabaton Anyway, your music is the best, thank you.

    • There are a lot of bands, and also young metalheads!

  • Songs are better with people real language especially Swedish

  • IKEA Employees when there's a shooting in an IKEA:

  • The music of year and this a my birthday :D 🥳

  • Hello sabaton band: I’m from mainland China. I played and quoted your song as a work of "How I Understand Patriotic Values" for an exhibition in our school’s music discussion today. As a result, I assimilated a large group of students into spiritual Swedish "This is simply Sweden's national treasure metal band" This is the evaluation of our class teacher

  • Those five well dressed men look like they're about to bring protestantism to the good peoples of yurop to free them from the yoke of catholic degeneracy :3

  • epic

  • Your songs are inspiring me to learn Swedish. As a native English speaker i hope it doesnt take too long

    • It's an interesting language!

  • кто русский?

  • Hahahah fake propaganda.janissaries were taken from the know this. Why do you make it look like an Arabian soldier?

    • Not sure if you know but considering Sabaton IS Swedish, they know what they’re doing with this

  • I love the quality, but damn, the sixpack of Corona just made that steel six-pack into a classic Family Pack, Hot Damn

  • sabaton has the F** best music videos in the world, they dont just tell a story, they tell history itself in the most beautiful way possible

    • @Sabaton you people are fucking incredible.

    • We are kind of complementary history lessons

  • 0:29 did I just hear the start to pirates of the Caribbean

  • Amazing

  • Anyone else recognize the tune from "Fairest Lord Jesus" ?

  • 3:25 why does this man remind me of seven pillars of wisdom?

  • Just when I thought the Bismarck video couldn’t be topped.

  • This must have been the most epic thing I saw in my entire life

    • Thank you for appreciating our music!

  • I think, the crown is the synonym for every king, who was, who is and who will be in future... oh, I love this song like all from sabaton, but my only manko is, I would like to play drums to the songs, but I´m not good enough for it... 2 years are not enough.... but I swear, i will play them one day. :)

  • beautiful

  • LOL hymn 30 in finnis hymn book ✝🙏

  • I'm glad I found this.

  • In the interest of nitpicking. The firearms in this video are anachronistic. The percussion cap was introduced in the beginning of the 1800s while the Skirmish at Bender that the video seems to depict took place in 1713. Flintlocks would have been the order of the day.

  • So happy to see the English version out! Sabaton's in that special 1% of metal bands I can get behind And that chorus. That damn beautiful chorus. I could listen to it on repeat.

  • I wish to meet you one day

  • When Aliens come and we would have to defend our planet against them we should have Sebaton make a song about humanity.

    • Aliens: "We have superior technology from across the stars." Humans: "We have Sabaton." Aliens: "... You win, Earthling."

  • Did the Life guard ever got to Fight the Ottomans?

    • @Dušan Kek

    • Yes. Skirmish at Bender in 1713

  • That's dope! Kings men arw awesome

  • Royal Rockin'! Hoorah!

  • The five musketeers....

  • For some reason this song gives me such a patriotic feeling towards Sweden even though I'm from Finland.

    • You are basically Sweden's gimped slave. It's fine.

    • Same country then. No difference back the between soldiers from Eastern and Western soioldiers. Back then your name was east Sweden if anything different.

  • Das ist fantastish

  • This is awesome!

  • Why are the Turks, and not Russia, for example. When it was Sweden fought with Turkey. But they were constantly in conflict with Russia.

    • @Dušan oh thanks for the information.

    • Skirmish at Bender in 1713

  • Now i want to defend the king of Sweden

  • This is one helluva good song

  • Hello Sabaton From The Philippines 🇵🇭 I enjoy your new song

    • Greetings from Sweden!

  • Looks really great. The humor is the fact, in 1709 the Ottomans helped the rest of Sweden army bitten by Russians near Poltava and run south

  • I'm Turkish and I feel patriotic like others who listened this music :D I listened multiple times and I cant stop.

    • @Türk Can you kindly express your dissatisfaction with their portrayal of turks without bringing us arabs into the mix? KThx

    • @BayKoala bu kadar değildi askerlerin giysileri. ve askerleri de arap kökenli seçmişler

    • @Türk Tamam o dönemlerde araplaşma baya hakimdi ama adamlar komutanları eyyübi askeri yapmışlar

    • Boş propaganda. Madem yeniçeriler balkanlardan alındı hani bize diyorlar ya bizim insanımıza sarışın veya beyaz olunca yeniçeri soyu e hani burda yeniçeriler arap askeri gibi

  • Didn't the Ottomans help the Swedes?

  • why is dragon turd on royal toilet

  • Don't waste your time in History Class: listen to SABATON!

    • We're kind of complementary lessons

  • teacher: we're going to Sweden! girls: OMG! I can't wait to have delicious meatballs! boys:


  • I like the swedish version more

  • Best birthday gift ever.... Yeah april 9th

  • Izrael vs arab country’s colorized

  • Триста Сабатонцев!

  • A question to all you historians listening. In the lyrics the line "Crushing blow at Narva dealt" is referring to what battle? I googled it and what I found was a battle in 1944 between Germany and Russia. Is it referring to that or another battle?

    • @hoi4 soyboiz Thank you.

    • Its referring to the battle of Narva in 1700.

  • Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Why the ottoman
