* AGodAmI: "Carolus Rex" (the song) [[DownplayedTrope stops just short]] in talking about King Charles XII's belief in the divine right of kings, portraying him as a borderline madman convinced his power comes directly from God.

** “Inmate 4859” is noticeably darker than the rest of the album ''Heroes''.



* EnnioMorriconePastiche: The whistles from “To Hell And Back”. This is especially clear in the intro, and the bridge.

** Zig-zagged by "To Hell And Back": On the one hand, it's a badass, uplifting song that describes the horrors in [=WW2=] faced by Creator/AudieMurphy and even describes [[ShellShockedVeteran his struggles with PTSD in the bridge]] ("And all along the shore/Where cannons still roar/They're haunting my dreams/They're still there when I sleep"). On the other hand, the badass, uplifting tone fits perfectly with how the lyrics describe [[Awesome/AudieMurphy Murphy's triumphs and eventual recovery]] ("He charged and attacked/He went to Hell and back!").

So whether or not the lyrics fit the music depends on what part of the song you're looking at.



* LyricsVideoMismatch: The music video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jTgkTEDDog The Lost Battalion]] shows scenes of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII combat... in a song ''explicitly'' about UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.

to:

** ''Attero Dominatus'' is a song about the Soviet sack of Berlin. Despite this, it's a catchy song with a big sing-along chorus.

Added DiffLines:

* NobleBirdOfPrey: The eagle is frequently used to symbolize Nazi Germany (for example, “The wings of the eagle's been broken” from “Attero Dominatus” and “The boar against the eagle” from “Resist and Bite”).
** The backing lyrics in the final chorus of “Inmate 4859” contain the phrase “White eagle”, referring to the white eagle of Poland.

Initially formed as a more typical metal group with frontman Joakim Brodén also playing keyboards, their first productions, a pair of EEs later released as ''Fist for Fight'' and their intended debut album ''Metalizer'', were sent into DevelopmentHell by their label at the time, Underground Symphony. In 2005 they jumped ship to Black Lodge Records and released the ConceptAlbum ''Primo Victoria'', which had Brodén give up keyboard duties to Daniel Mÿhr. Such war songs, composed by Brodén, bassist Pär Sundström, or both, have comprised the lion's share of their output ever since. They are currently signed to Nuclear Blast Records.

The band underwent a major lineup change after the release of ''Carolus Rex'' in 2012, with Mÿhr, guitarists Rikard Sundén and Oskar Montelius, and drummer Daniel Mullback leaving due to the group's grueling touring schedule. They subsequently joined up with Music/AstralDoors vocalist Nils Patrik Johannson to form Music/CivilWar.

** ''Carolus Rex'' in general has a lot of this, with song titles like "Gott Mit Uns" and ''Ruina Imperii'' and whole lines in some songs being in Old Swedish. Plus, there is a Swedish version of the whole album. "Ruina Imperii" is the only song on the album that doesn't have an English version, not counting bonus tracks. The "chanting" in "The Carolean's Prayer" is the Lord's Prayer in Swedish. Bonus point for "Ruina Imperii" is titled in Latin/Russian.

* SomethingElseAlsoRises: {{Inverted}}. "The Rise of Evil" is ostensibly about the rise of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany. Brodén has been known to introduce it at concerts by saying it's about his penis. (This can be heard in Swedish on a bonus track of the ''Primo Victoria'' reissue.)

** ''Metal Machine'' is so full of Shout-Outs to other bands that it'd probably be quicker to watch this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvRZxn7e3hc video]] showing what and where they are in the song than to read a full list of them.

"Metal Crue" does the same thing with the names of metal bands, while "Metal Ripper" uses song titles.
