"Heroes" (2014) is the seventh studio album from Swedish power metal band Sabaton. There was initial apprehension given that the band turned over four members after "Carolus Rex," but fear not--Sabaton's songwriters remain and are at the top of their game here. "Heroes" is easily my favorite Sabaton album, it's my favorite album of 2014, and it's become my go-to album whenever I do cardio.

With the exception of one track (see below), Sabaton is all heavy metal business here. This is a short, brisk album--there's no padding on any of these songs, there's no symphonic or guitar wankery, and no song overstays its welcome unduly (only two songs are over four minutes). Sabaton gets in, they blow it up with catchy choruses, and they get out and move on to the next one.

Style-wise, Sabaton hasn't really changed at all, but in addition to some of the best songwriting they've ever done (if "Night Witches" doesn't replace "Ghost Division" as their show-opener, they're really dropping the ball), they freshen things up a bit with an interesting variety of arrangements (see, e.g., "To Hell and Back," "Inmate 4859"). There's been a shift in the lyrical focus--to individuals and small groups in war--which makes the songs more personal and accessible.

If there's a knock on this album, it's that "The Ballad of Bull" (which isn't terrible) is something of a tempo killer, and Broden's voice on a piano ballad isn't the best idea. And the bonus tracks--"7734," a remake from "Metalizer," and "Men of War," a cheeseball tribute to Manowar--aren't as strong.

This album is on point and brings together everything you love and expect from Sabaton. It is driving and will take the listener through the spectrum. It has some very interesting (and brave - you will know it when you hear it) choices that really pay off. Its production is epic in feel and scope. Makes one look forward to the inevitable Sabaton and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra album and dvd. How incredible would that be? You guys should really get on that. The opening track (Night Witches) was the perfect tone setting opening for the album. Considering our failed education system, I have to pause and give thanks for their themes, as unless one were to seek out these topics on ones own they would never be exposed to them.

Great album. I just discovered this band this year. Heavily influenced by the classic sounds of heavy metal. Most of their albums have a 5 star review and they deserve it. This band doesn't seem to be too popular in the US...yet. Awesome in concert as well. Saw them open for another band and they stole the show.

Swedish power metal battalion Sabaton is back with a new album, their seventh overall, titled Heroes. It’s the band’s first studio release since the lineup change that brought guitarists Chris Rorland and Thobbe Englund and drummer Hannes Van Dahl to the fold, and is the follow-up to their ambitious Swedish language album Carolus Rex.

Sabaton is back on familiar territory with Heroes. Not only are the lyrics once again in English, but the subject matter is, as always, focused on war. It’s not a full-on concept album like Carolus Rex, but each song on Heroes focuses on an individual or regiment in various conflicts (though World War II is the primary theme) who have shown courage on and off the battlefield. Musically, well, it’s a Sabaton album, so you know not to expect any changes. This is the same kind of galloping, martial, melodic power metal with marching rhythms and rousing choruses that they’ve delivered from the very start. They continue to play this kind of music very well, so that predictability is not likely to upset many Sabaton fans.

Predictability aside, Heroes is a dynamite power metal album. The best Sabaton songs are rousing enough to make you want to go marching to battle with the band, and there are songs on Heroes that definitely accomplish that. Album opener “Night Witches” and “Smoking Snakes” have that perfect combination of melody and heaviness. The slower (but still heavy) “Inmate 4859” and slower (though not heavy at all) “The Ballad of Bull” change the pace at just the right times. The album’s brightest moments come from the stirring, Audie Murphy-inspired “To Hell and Back” and the fierce “Resist and Bite.”

This one is pretty easy to recommend. If you’re already a Sabaton fan, you’re going to enjoy this album.

Like pretty much all of Sabaton's offerings, this is a history lesson on a disc, set to heavy metal like few others. This is a disc that one could put in the drive and simply let it spin, and not be disappointed.

Excellent Songs: Hearts of Iron, Inmate 4859, Night Witches, Resist and Bite, Soldier of 3 Armies, To Hell And Back. Night Witches and To Hell and Back will cause the short-hairs on necks to stand up and salute the first time they are heard.
Good Songs: 7734, Far From The Fame, No Bullets Fly, Smoking Snakes.
Average Songs: The Ballad of Bull. A bit slower and softer than their average, but otherwise a good history reminder.
Bad Songs: this is Sabaton we're talking about. No such thing as a bad song in their arsenal.
