No Thobbe runs his own songs except a Judas Priest cover in the form of “The Ripper” who would have made all Judas Priest cover bands jealous, maybe even Judas Priest themselves.

Critics may call the band “Eurovision rock”but the fans doesn´t really care. You know what you get. A great time all the way through.
Tried to come in but it was full! What can I do, when Sabaton hits the stage it feels like everything falls into place. The band and the audience become one.
The show starts with the extremely well oiled “Ghost Division” and for me that’s one of the best openers when it comes to live shows in the world of Heavy Metal.
The level of frenzy Elvenking displays is simply astounding up to this point and i am truly amazed. The whole band brings professialism and joy to this cold, dark corner of Sweden tonight.
All in all, Nerved delivers a stabile and capable set but somethings missing. I had quite high hopes on this show but it never delivered on my expectations.
Sabaton chooses to play songs from “Carolus Rex” in Swedish, even though the audience are from at least 30 different nationalities. It’s just magic to hear the crowd sing along with the band in swedish.
The musicians are skilled. If I have to find something to complain about, the sound is not the best, but I don’t care because I have Angus McFife XIII on stage and the whole Hoothforce.
Expectations from the audience are high. Expectations from me are high. Candlemass 2019, how does they sound? From the first notes to the last, it can only be described with one word; Perfect!
Singer Artur Almeida is of high class and it would not surprise me if he has Bruce Dickinson as his role model. His voice is sometimes very similar to the legendary singer of Iron Maiden.
In classic -80’s metal style we get the individual solo parts and first up is Dee Dammers who delivers a acoustic solo which seamlessly goes in to “In The Darkness”, where Udo stands alone and almost pleads to the thinning crowd: “..please dont leave me alone.. In the darkness!” and it is such a beutiful moment that i almost run down front row to scream out my love for him.
The band members are indeed competent on their respective instruments and “When The Sun Goes Down” is a brilliant song, although it’s not good enough this afternoon in Falun.
“Hangover”, “Black Sails At Midnight” and “Mexico” delivers an crowdpleasing, beerstinkin’ metal in which Christopher Bowes gets to really stretch his legs as a front man.
When they got the shit together it was a complete overrun of the rest of the lead singers we have heard so far this weekend. Oh my god what a voice!!
Christian who used to be the vocalist in Twilight Force really shows that you can do a great job as a front man just by being humble and calm, the voice is pretty good as well.
Sabaton Open Air is known to bring bands of this genre to Falun, Ensiferum have played this festival before and last year we wittnessed Trollfest making a very special appearance at Lugnet here in Falun.
