    I like symphonic metal music and became aware of this band while exploring this genre. For those that don’t know them, they sing about wars and battles and research every song topic so as to be as truthful about the subject as possible.

    This video, for example, is about the behemoth German warship, the Bismarck. It was considered so dangerous that a huge concentrated effort was made to specifically take out this one ship.

    This one is about a temporary truce called on Christmas by soldiers who had just been fighting each other, a brief pause to act as friends before killing one another again.
