A must buy for all metal fans.

Their music, their songs have a story to tell about real events (isn't that what a song is suppose to do?).

All you fans of bands such as Grave Digger, UDO, Running Wild, Manowar and the like should immediately grab your war helmuts and report for duty. Your new heavy metal idols have arrived!!!

Primo Victoria is apparently Sabaton's second release but the first real serious effort enlisting a big time production. This release is a concept album about world war 2. Thankfully a great backdrop for this type of music. What we have here is very polished on the one hand with humungous and extremely great sounding chorus lines but with a lead singer that is coming from the Grave Digger, UDO harsh vocal mold but not quite into the death metal realm. This is honest heavy metal played in your face and with all the freshness you do not get from the typical hords of Hammerfall/Helloween clones.

The album start off with a the stunning title track and rarely misses a beat the whole way through. Panzer Batallion, Wolfpack, Into The Fire, Metal Machine. They all smoke in a huge, heavy metal way. The album playing time is a bit short at only 40 minutes but there is no interludes or wasted space and the production is jam packed and well done.

If I have to be honest, this is an album that simply put cannot me missed by any true metal fan. Anyone claiming to be a fan of Classic Heavy Metal, True Metal or Power Metal that does not own a copy of this release, simply put, is a looser. It may not be the best album in your collection but it is one you will wield with a tremendous sense of pride.

Recently, I found this free mp3 site (which shall remain nameless) that seems to cater to up-and-coming bands or solo musicians, or old bands that may have drifted off into oblivion in all genres. Anyway, I ran across a listing for Sabaton in their Heavy Metal section. They had four songs for download. Two of which are from this album: Primo Victoria and Panzer Battalion. The other two supposedly from their first album that has apparently never been released.

So I downloaded all of them and played "Primo Victoria" first. WOW! What a catchy tune. First as a previous reviewer said, the chorus is very moving and gets you going for the rest of the song..."Through the Gates of Hell/As We Make Our Way to Heaven/Through the Nazi Lines/Primo Victoria!"

One thing that I feel is important on whether or not I like a band is the quality of their vocalist. If the band doesn't have a good vocalist, then no matter how the instrumentals are, the vocalist can kill a band. Sabaton has a great singer. He has a gravely voice, yet it's clean. Not quite death metal growlings, but close.

One thing I find interesting about this band is from what another reviewer said that the ages of the members are in their early 20s. On that mp3 site, they have a pic of the band and they look much older than that. I'm 31 and these guys appear to be at least in their late 20s. But anyway, that's neither here nor there.

So, if you live good heavy metal, and don't mind or even prefer what's known as Scandinavian metal, then you might want to pick up this album from Sabaton.

An absolutely fabulous album by Swedish band Sabaton. This album does not really have any weak points as the guitars are brilliant, the drumming extremely heavy and tight, and the vocals sound excellent. If you should compare Primo Victoria to anything I would say maybe a little like Jag Panzer at their best with a little Manowar (Kings of Metal era) thrown in. A must buy for all metal fans.

This is what metal should be. The lyrics are great, the music just rocks and I just love it. I mlike all their songs that I have heard, though I like some more than others (kind of like discussing fried clam strips, fried chicken, a good steak, lobster, shrimp, and crab).

My first experience with Sabaton was when I saw them open for Iced Earth on their tour these past couple of weeks... One song in, I was sold on them, and this was one of the three albums I bought as soon as I got paid...

Sabaton's theme and vibe are classic power metal infused with keyboards and awesome vocals, while being almost completely about different periods in history (and doing the lyrics right, mind you). Their energy on stage is amazing, and their studio work is fantastic (this album in particular being their first one, and it's better than a lot of stuff that came out recently in the US...or anywhere)...

If you want excellent metal from people who care about what they're making, get this album.

Do not wait on getting it; get it yesterday.

You will not be disappointed.

Format: Audio CD
Originally released in 2005, Primo Victoria was the second full-length release (or first depending on how you place Metalizer) from Swedish power metal brigade Sabaton, who pair their hard charging melodic heavy metal sound with an obsession with warfare. Running Wild and Powerwolf are the closest points of comparison to Sabaton's sound. Just substitute the songs about pirates (Running Wild) and the devil (Powerwolf) with songs about tanks and old battles.

Primo Victoria is just an incredibly enjoyable power metal album. Songs about wars and the machinery of battle are nothing new (see: Bolt Thrower), but Sabaton took the subject matter and a stark martial approach and combined it perfectly with the classic European power metal sound. You don't know whether to bang your head or march in line half the time! The album is catchy, heavy and has some of Sabaton's best songs, including the monster title track, "Panzer Battalion" and "Metal Machine," which is a staple of their high-energy live shows.

Primo Victoria was a major milestone for Sabaton, and is the album that still really defines the band's unique sound. It's a strong, hard-hitting, melodic power metal album that should definitely appeal to fans of bands like Running Wild, Powerwolf, Grave Digger, Rage, Hammerfall, Jag Panzer, and perhaps even the militaristic Bolt Thrower.

Edition Notes: Nuclear Blast reissued a "Re-Armed" edition of Primo Victoria in 2010.
