Sabaton History:
========= The Royal Guard LYRICS =========
From the frozen north they came
Fought for founding father’s claim
It was then, their tale, began
Trace their roots from 16 strong
By the king where they belong
En tid
Av Krig
Wherever he goes, near or far, they are close
For the King of Sweden they lay down their lives
For the Swedish crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard
Sworn protectors of the throne
Royal doctrine set in stone
For the crown, you shall give your life
By traditions from the past
Swedish soldiers stand steadfast
I frid
Och i strid
And if one should fall, yet another, heeds the call
For king and for country they lay down their lives
För Sverige i tiden
Dit konungen går
De gör vad som synes omöjligt, vad än framtiden spår
Still for the crown they stand
By the king, at his command
500 years for the fatherland
Marching across the belt
Crushing blow at Narva dealt
Livgardet our Royal Guard
Recorded and mixed at Black Lounge studios by Jonas Kjellgren.

    • Not only the Video, the Music is great too 🤘

    • Not my kind of track, sorry. Sounds very generic.

    • you guys look badass

    • All i have to say about this is that i'm waiting for the history video

    • @Manty when that time comes you can't find any of them :)

  • Sabaton doesnt make music for fans or money. It's just an excuse to get funding for heavy duty LARP:ing in their music videos

  • Is the Video of the Swedish Royal Guard fighting the Jannisaries of the Ottoman Empire?

  • İ love sabaton but when i saw the janissaries i simply could not like Hello from turkey

  • i will listen to this music until i die, sabaton 4 ever

  • Me: THEY SHOT CHRIS! Also Me: Oh never mind. They just pissed him off.

  • Great song and video. Greetings from Poland.

  • From Finland: why did you have to lose us... you dicks. We'd have rather been a part of Sweden than Russia.

  • For the Swedish crown they stand... Man, 1:17 the action starts!!!

  • I've listened to this great song ten times already and can't stop!

  • Jesus, this is amazing!!!

    • Epic, isn't it?

  • I like how Sabaton touches the underrated parts of history

  • pro tip : if you can't make high quality cinematic videos , then don't make music video at all, and stick with music with lyrics , the song is mediocre at best and the video is very low quality and feels cheap , the emotions and reactions of the characters deeply looks fake and shallow , sorry sabaton but this time i have to say it, you want to know what i mean by high quality ? search : BISMARCK - sabaton

  • Legend has it, those Swedes still fight on

  • long live Sabaton and all there musical might

  • Please Make a Song about Frederick The Great and the Prussian Army in the seven years war

  • With music like this I’m surprised Sweden hasn’t reunited its empire

  • i understand like 20 words from the original and to be honest , swedish just fits better , but this one is amazing aswell

  • It's so beautiful...... here's to another 500 years

  • Perfect

  • It's awesome how you show Swedish royal guards hisory.

  • Is that Janissary Ottoman s

  • Einwandfrei

  • Watching sabaton clean through janissaries is the most metal stuff I’ve seen all year

  • Can someone explain why are they fighting with the Turks? I tought we never fought with them Swedes.

  • sabaton är bäst och jag har en sabaton tröja

  • Wait...were they Ottomans??

  • The closest thing we have in the states to the Royal Guard is the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I hope someone can make an alternate set of lyrics and make a cover for it.

  • Let's go Sabaton! For the king of Sweden! Never been prouder of my ancestory

  • Me and some friends were playing For Honor & we had this playing in the background of our voice chat and we dominated our enemies. This is definitely awesome at making you feel patriotic and invincible

  • At 1:30 are those janissaries fighting swedish troops? When and where?

  • I always played Sweden is Empire Total War :)

  • I now feel patriotic for Sweden. AND I'M AMERICAN. How does Sabaton do that? Every time, too.

  • Listen when playing EU 4 ;)

  • "Dejlig er jorden " er skrevet af den danske digter B S Ingemann.. Så måske ikke lige koblingen mellem Sabaton og BS Ingemann - Melodien er tysk jf wiki.

  • хм а причём тут арабы или от кого они там обороняются было бы логично что от русских... Но кто это?

  • Its nice to hear how Sabaton used hymn books christmas song from Germany to tell tale of the royal guard of Sweden. I like this song but its weird to hear it from this awesome band

  • "500 years for the fatherland." The vibrato on "years" is just epic.

  • Descendants of the vikings! Respect from the Russia 🇷🇺!

  • I am Danish. And this song makes me think: "Wow, the last battle we fought with that country; is over 200 years ago..."

    • In the good old days Sweden and Denmark used to go to war if there was nothing else happening that weekend.

  • Sweden in 2021.

  • N. 1

  • This video literally shows us the present time in Sweden, were the arabs have totally invaded Sweden... :(

  • I am getting the hint that if you push Sweden far enough, like New Zealand, you get the nastiest soldiers you could ever fight.This song is epic. I love it.

  • something ive noticed at the start of the video is that in the throne room theyve got that really cool looking plate knight armour which ive never seen before. Sabaton really try to get as much history in everython they do!

  • What Ottomans?

  • It's probsbly safe to say that, at this point, the average foreign Sabaton fan is more patriotic about Sweden than the average Swede is. Lol

  • Thanks to this video, I finally won the Great Northern War as Sweden in 17th Century EU4

  • swedish metal bands: its a great honor die for the crown latin metal bands: get us out from latin america please

  • 4:19 у меня мурашки на этом моменте

  • Want a song about the battle of Narvik!!!😁😁😁

  • nope, this was not a good one sorry. maybe a good army regiment translated into english (i don't know) but as a metal song it just doesn't give me the shivers while listening. and the clip is beyond cringe, you all look like virgin geeks larping ffs. i was expecting waifu pillows showing up after the fight

  • Got tears in my eyes here. And i am not even swedish. This song is amazing


  • In most clips, probably my grand grand father killed by sabaton or other forces :) No worries tho i like videos

  • The swedish version of this song is just the same guys coming back from a good fight, blood still on them. Fighting makes you hungry.

  • I don't understand what the video is about. I'm Turkish and as far as I know the Ottomans got along well with Sweden. The Ottomans even protected the swedish king who sought protection against the russians. You can look up the Battle of Prut. Can you guys inform me which historical event the clip is based on?

  • I look at this song and think 'you had WAY too much fun making the video for this version'

  • Okay. Amazing song and all but where the hell came those janissaries from in sweden?!

  • First time hearing this and i know the words wtf 😂, sabaton go ham.. and have made some fuckin wicked music 💯🤟

  • i listen to this song whenever i crusade in games and i feel like a fucking god whenever so

  • Orig. Bernhard Severin Ingemann 1850, hymn book. Original in my language is called Earth so beautiful (Bright the sky of God). "Years pass fast, generations fade to oblivion, but brightly always, song of the souls, remain on the path to Heaven." Nice.

  • Visited Sweden a while ago and most of its museum, this is the pinnacle of teaching this country's history. Thank you, hope to see you soon in Switzerland for a concert !

  • Can't wait till the next album drops.

  • in real turc and swedish is allies

  • Based

  • They never made a song from the view of the muslim resistance across the history. For example the algerian resistance agains france colonaisers or the resistance of palaestinans agains the british. Prey weard how they only show one side....but they still a talented

    • Sabaton are Swedish and does historical stuff that Swedish people learn in school pretty much. Swedish people/Sabaton doesnt know anything about alergian resistance or palestinian aganst british.

  • Bästa låten som jag har hört och en av er hedrar aspeboda ❤️👍🏼🤟🏻

  • Amazing

  • Does Joakims knee hurt?

  • Ottoman? Like....Islamic?

  • me: oh sweet a new song to learn the words to and sing along to on road trips. (hears swedish parts in the song) also me: well looks like i'm summoning a demon while attempting to sing in swedish now.

  • Make a song about the Yamato Pls!!!!! Also sub to Sabaton!!!!!!

  • Any war was this?

  • For the King of Sweden! \--------/ I\ [N И] II / /I\ \ : / /I\ \ II I I I \ \/ / I \ \ II I:=I l-----------l l..IIE) Ш / /\ \ U I I I I I I I I \ / \ / IIIh IIIh

  • Do you really think sweden can beat the ottoman? Add: Turks are not Arabs. stop showing like this

    • It is from the incident at Bender, Sweden and the Ottoman Empire where allies but there was some complications. Afterwards they where still friends.

  • YOUNG TURKS 🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷🇹🇷


  • 🇵🇱🇵🇱

  • Basis of this song is a swedish/finnish "church song" don't know what it's in english but here in Finland we call them VIRSI and I'm not familiar with the swedish version or but here's Tarja Turunen singing the finnish version

  • Never thought I would see "Dejlig er Jorden" turned into power rock. Neat.

  • I just became Swedish patriot

    • It's pretty normal

  • long live our royal band

  • Bork

  • And this is why the royal guard gets twice as much training than the army does, to defend, DER FATHERLAND!

    • That is German, in Swedish Fosterlandet, eller Fäderneslandet.

  • Don’t mind me, just getting hyped for the next song

    • @Sabaton I absolutely loved it, one of my new top favorites

    • Did you like it?

    • aren't we always

  • When you buy the vinyl for it than realized there's only 800 made so you don't wanna even open it

  • First song I heard from Sabaton was sabateurs. Ever since then I have really enjoyed the music. As for the video great job. Truly brings out ones patriotism.

    • Thank you for appreciating our music!

  • Can somebody please explain which event us happening in the video please?

    • As Gustav writes the video is about that incident but the song, the lyrics, is about the Regiment.

    • The Skirmish at bender

    • I don't believe its any particular event. As far as I'm aware, the Swedish had very few interactions with Turkic/Arabic nations in war, other than a select few run-ins with the Ottomans

  • i hope someone playing solo guitar on middle of war 😁

  • Ok, now I need to add a musket in my collection, for.....reasons

  • this is cinema quality

  • Heres a war themed song in the spirit of Sabaton

  • Every time Sabaton makes a song about certain groups of soldiers or people, they always manage to make me feel the camaraderie, loyalty, courage and trust that they must have had for each other. Royal Guardsmen, Caroleans, 12th Army, 77th, Swiss Guard, Chasseurs Ardennais, Devil Dogs, all of them. Thank you again for bringing the stories of all these different people to life through your amazing music, fellow Scandinavians! 👍

  • This shall be Sweden's new National Anthem!

  • Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature! O Thou of God and man the Son! Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor! Thou my souls Glory, Joy, and Crown!

    • @Jason Moyer I didn't realize, that's epic. I just heard the chorus and had to find that old hymn. Good music like this is timeless.

    • Also, the tune (while recognizable as “Fairest Lord Jesus”) is even older and considered the “Crusaders Hymn”. Too perfect.

    • Knew I recognized that chorus! It was bugging me, thanks for reminding me of the origin.

  • Me and my wife got our tickets for the upcoming san antonio show. Looking foreward to seeing you guys live

  • I love your music, I'm 14 now, but anyone at my age I know doesn't listen to metal... My generation is rotted, everyone listens to rap and hip-hop, it makes me kinda sick, we need more bands like you.

    • Thank you for appreciating our music!

    • @Sabaton Anyway, your music is the best, thank you.

    • There are a lot of bands, and also young metalheads!

  • Songs are better with people real language especially Swedish
