* GenreShift: Besides the lyrical shift from HeavyMithril to HorribleHistoryMetal with ''Primo Victoria'', the earlier albums are musically more TraditionalHeavyMetal but shift to PowerMetal roughly at ''The Art of War''.

[[http://sabaton.net Sabaton]] is a [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} Swedish]] PowerMetal band founded in 1999. Most of their songs touch on themes of war, often being about [[HorribleHistoryMetal famous historical battles]], especially from UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.

Initially formed as a more typical metal group with frontman Joakim Brodén also playing keyboards, their first productions, a pair of EPs 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.

* DirtyCoward: Although the band usually abstains from judging who was right or wrong in any given conflict, "In the Name of God" plainly describes terrorists as evil cowards.

** "Inmate 4859" is noticeably darker than the rest of the album ''Heroes''. Even "Far From the Fame", which is also a very sad song, still has the normal "Sabaton sound"; while "Inmate 4859" ''feels'' much more downbeat and is actually quite chilling.

** ''Heroes'' has another example with the rather abrupt switch from the blood-pumping "Smoking Snakes" to the operatic, grim tale of Witold Pilecki in "Inmate 4859". "Inmate 4859" is then followed by the badass, energetic "To Hell And Back".
