Overall, The Art of War is an absolute masterpiece, which simultaneously moves the band closer towards the more melodic and super catchy war anthems the band has become famous for, while also being their most cohesive work to date, thanks to an over arching concept that is executed perfectly. It has a perfect mix of speedy, instantly catchy tracks as well as some slower, more powerful tracks with some surprisingly emotional lyrics, and overall it's tough to argue against it being the band's greatest album to date. Swedish power metallers Sabaton take their inspiration from military history, using depictions of key historical battles and campaigns to color their epic, keyboard-driven heavy metal. Everything from the speedier tracks to the more mid paced affairs, all feel like the beginnings of tracks the bands would make on later albums, but here they're all executed to perfection. He truly is the star of the band, and this album definitely proves that, once again. .
We'll find a way when all hope is gone We've seen the fall of the elite Bury your life, sink your disease We'll end the world when all hope is gone The wretched are the wounded The hungry starved to death At a place where no-one goes The air itself is a final breathe So discontinue The antiseptic cash charade As the cry of justice comes I'm gonna let this fire free I am the reason your future suffers I am the hatred you won't embrace I am the worm of a pure distinction I am the remedy, spit in my face All your lies and wars are out-dated All your subjects are dulling mind games I can let all of another million reasons why But doesn't matter when the only thing will never die We have made the present, obsolete What do you want? Overall it's simply a stunning, powerful track that the band has tried to recreate many times, but not quite managed to match it.

The tracks on the album correspond to each chapter of treatise. This album felt like the perfect middle ground between the speedier sound of their debut and the slower sound found on Carolus Rex and both albums they've done since, with a nice variety to the tracks, and everything is done perfectly.
In fact, while Sabaton has always had some epic lyrics, I find this album to be their best in that area, as some of the tracks are surprisingly very emotional and touching, and they do a great job of showing the effects war can have on people. The lyrics of the songs are about famous battles or war, mostly based on the battles of the and World Wars where Sun Tzu's tactics were applied. In between songs, a woman briefly narrates quotes from the book, which gives extra context to the tracks and I find this to be quite cool, as it adds an extra layer to the songs, and I think these quotes fit in perfectly with the lyrics of the songs, making the already epic and at times emotional lyrics of the album all the more powerful. The album is based around an ancient Chinese military treatise titled The Art of War, written by Sun Tzu, with each track being focused on a particular chapter from the book. The line where the song's name showed up in particular is just amazing, while the chorus is absolutely incredible and probably their best to date. Their electrifying live show — which features a full-sized and firing tank — has won numerous industry accolades, while two of their eight studio albums are certified platinum sellers.

Of course, one area where the band always delivers is the vocals, and Joakim Brodén is in top form here, sounding very smooth and very powerful at the same time.

Sabaton - Cliffs Of Gallipoli. Their fifth album, The Art of War, is inspired in part by Sun Tzu's definitive strategic handbook, and the album's 13 tracks feature intermittent quotations from the manual. It's their one album where every song already impressed me on first listen, and I always enjoyed the narrations, as they're brief, effective and add a bit of extra context to the tracks, without ever getting in the way, so it was always a perfect album for me in every way possible. It's definitely a song they've attempted to outdo on future albums, but this is one of their best mid paced tracks, for sure. Sabaton - The Nature Of Warfare. The Nature Of Warfare 1:18 7.

In short, while their later album Heroes may be their most addictive album as well as my most played album in quite some time, this one is probably their most impressive and most consistently awesome release to date. I just listened to it on vinyl for the first time, I like that its 45 rpm, sounds fantastic! The Art Of War 5:08 4. Cliffs Of Gallipoli 5:51 8.
What will you do when your system fails? Sabaton - The Art Of War. While their first two albums laid the foundation for the band's sound, The Art of War is the album where they really broke through and where their formula was fully unleashed in all its glory, with future albums trying to match it, and not quite getting there. It manages to fit the bands sound perfectly, while still sounding unique, and is definitely another easy favorite, with the folk melodies adding an extra layer to an already amazing track. It has a similar sound to the title track, except its riffs hit harder and it just feels all the more epic, with Joakim again delivering some very emotional vocals, and the lyrics are again very sad and a bit tough to take, but they're delivered so damn well. It's tough to say which I prefer between it and Heroes, but both are absolutely incredible, and this one probably is better from a technical standpoint.
