ALBUM REVIEW: Sabaton – The War To End All Wars


Sabaton is a group that has applied their singular, surefire sound to all their works while still making each release entertainingly compelling and special. For over twenty years, this Swedish Power Metal quintet has affected the scene with their fierce vibrato and hard-hitting intensity. They have become well-known storytellers who bring history to life through their knowledgeable lyrics and grandiose style of playing. Their capacity to carry historic war themes through their skillful writing has allowed them to carve into the new genre of Military Metal. They released an album in 2019 called The Great War where they shared tales from World War One. They knew they couldn’t fit all the war’s remarkable events on just one album so now they are getting ready to release a full-length follow up stocked with more stories. The War to End all Wars (both Nuclear Blast) continues the band’s narrative on WW1 and does so with exceptionally exhilarating enthusiasm. Continue reading

Blue Ridge Rock Fest, as it turns out, became a perfect storm of too many fans, too small a town, to support those fans. Purpose Driven events had put on severa
