The German Varg is back again. The band who, with the ‘Rotkäppchen’ EP, released an appetizer for a new full length album. From the entertaining and funny 2015 single, to ‘Das Ende Alle Lügen’ is quite a big step. From the jolly folk metal that these “Wolves”, as they call themselves, have released, we dive deep into a heavier and more aggressive kind of music with which Varg attempts to end all the lying in the world.
Let me start with saying the following: Civil War is a band conducted from old members of the Swedish metal band Sabaton. We all know that Sabaton is loved by many people and most of those fans will probably want to be introduced to Civil War. That is a grave misunderstanding! Yes, the music Civil War produces is very like Sabaton, but if you look at it that way it will not score well. ‘Gods And Generals’ is just the second album by Civil War, nothing more.
Let me begin by apologizing for the fact that I did not post a Sabaton Saturday last week. I had a tough week, finishing a lot of stuff for school and in the meantime working for a new boss. I know, a bad excuse, but it happened and therefore I apologize.
So now to the new Sabaton Saturday. Most wars are fought mostly on land. That are the wars that I always got taught about at school and that children hear about these days. But this story is one that took place on the Atlantic ocean. This is all about the ‘Wolfpack’, an alternative name for the groups of German submarines during the Second World War.
