Sabaton History:

========= Defence Of Moscow LYRICS =========

As the Wehrmacht overrun, Russia 1941
They don’t belong, we stand our ground, a million strong

We are ready for their strike, face the army of the reich
A million strong, this is our land, they don’t belong.

Hear Marshal Zhukov’s, and Stalin’s orders
Defend the motherland
Moscow shall not fall

Stand and follow command, our blood for the homeland
Heed the motherland’s call, and brace for the storm
Moscow will never give in, there is no surrender
Force them into retreat, and into defeat

Face the volleys of their guns, for Russia’s daughters and her sons
All the brave, who stand against the typhoon wave

From the mountains and the plains, come in thousands on the trains
Day and night, they're rolling in, to join the fight

From Kazakhstan to Magadan!
Call of the motherland
Russia shall prevail

  • Dear Joakim! Write a song about "Malaya Zemlya" in the city of Novorossiysk, where the paratroopers heroically defended a small piece of land for 225 days, preventing the Germans from advancing on the Caucasus. Уважаемый Joakim! Напишите песню про "Малую землю" в городе Новороссийск, где десант 225 дней героически оборонял небольшой кусок земли, не давая немцам наступать на Кавказ.

  • They Uno-Reverse-Carded his ass

  • 💪💪💪💪💪💪💪✌✌✌✊✊✊✊

  • несмотря на некоторые ляпы в видео сам кавер в исполнении сабатона лично мне понравился немного больше оригинала . А именно более быстрым темпом и мажорным соло на гитаре в конце , которое очень хорошо передают перемену эмоций по сюжету песни , а торжественность гимна это подчеркивает

  • I want the Japanese army to do it too ww2 😁❤️

  • Can you guys just cover the soviet anthem with electric guitar.That part is just soo good.

  • Accept- Stalingrad song has the Soviet Union anthem

  • Radio Tapok: I really hope my song takes off. Soviet Sabaton: Our song.

  • Русский оригинал и немецкий кавер

  • Russian music and germanian cover

  • А перевод что нельзя было сделать на русский (субтитры)

  • That's awesome that Radio wrote that himself! Big fan of both Sabaton and Radio!

  • Can you make song of White movement in russia civil war just like Black Baron or admiral Kolchak

  • а это нормально, что у Саббатона меньше подписчиков чем у РТ?

  • This song is a GEM! Thank you Sabaton! Эта песня - жемчужина! Спасибо Сабатон!

  • I think it's time to create an official international fan club of Sabaton. I bet the russian branch will be the biggest and the most active 😂

  • Simo Hayha ?

  • Отлично получилось!

  • Thank you, guys, the song have power and i'm very proud of it. Спасибо ребят, хороший кавер.

  • Radio tapok iz de best! Thanx guys, that you tell it all. You're amazing. Good luck.

  • вери куул энд зерр гут !!

  • Паук и Тесак обсуждают новый хит Сабатона на английском.

  • Спасибо вам, Сабатон! За ваше творчество, за ваш драйв, за любовь к истории, за то, что освещаете в своих песнях славные битвы прошлого, в том числе Советского Союза и России! Thank you Sabaton! For your creativity, for your drive, for your love of history, for illuminating in your songs the glorious battles of the past, including the Soviet Union and Russia!

  • sabatonize my existence

  • Greetings from Russia! Thanks a lot for the song and for the Russian anthem used as the basis for the solo. Well done! We are waiting you in Moscow with a concert .... Hope you'll be able to make it soon

  • Спасибо! Вы проделали отличную работу.

  • Radio Tapok 🤘🤘🤘🔥🔥

  • Inquiring minds want to know: will this song be on an album or possibly a rearmed version of an existing album? Asking for a friend. ;)

    • I wiĺl not be your friend.... ...cause we are COMRADES!

  • Returning the favor like true comrades

  • does joakim broden have a black eye?

    • He was probably fistfighting Eva 01. Again.

  • А че здесь Тесак делает

  • I'm still learning a lot with Sabaton, thank you. Great song!

  • А где мемы про Тесака?

  • Sabaton, I say hello to you from Russia! 🇷🇺 I love your music! 🎸🤘

  • I M RUSSIA!!!

  • Joakim's baldspot has dissapeared. I wonder what could've happened...

  • Want to feel patriotic about a country you aren't from? Listen to Sabaton!

  • I listened to The Bismrick last 2 week. That is my first Sabaton song and i felt in love with this band.

  • Can you do Russian subtitles with Radio Tapok? My English is very bad, i need rus sub

  • can I ask when to fit with Rammstein

  • Hello sabaton i Wonder if you have a New Idea for a song because i have some song that could interest you like 'the tiger' or Jeanne of d'Arc

  • Теперь будем ждать пародии на радио тапка от сабатон

  • Bunch of Super Awesome dudes 😁 🤘

  • That's a great friendship between you and Toppok (poggers), and i'm a bit confused, that Sabaton never gave any text credit or mention about the fact that this is a cover on a video

    • It isn't typical of Sabaton. Usually, they like to give credit. But maybe that's why they did these supplemental videos, just to make sure everyone knew.

  • И подавляющее большинство комментариев - русские :D

  • Марцинкевич как всегда лучше всех выступил

  • Мне одному показался тесак на привьюхи?

  • Sabaton The only metal band that can make long-haired men awesome

  • This is a big mistake, guys. The Soviet Union was as evil as the nazis. Probably even worse, because the nazis targeted some groups but the soviets targeted everyone. No one was safe from the terror, even the highest-ranking officials

    • @Thomas Wright Oh, great. Then i'm ok. Thanks for the information ;)

    • @Anastasios Pesiridis They also have songs that don't paint the Nazis in a good light, like "Rise of Evil" and "Final Solution." But "Wehrmacht" is a much more introspective look at the typical German soldier during the war doing his job, probably not even aware of Nazi atrocities, still convinced he is doing what's right for his country.

    • @Anastasios Pesiridis They have made songs about people who fought for Germany. "Ghost Division" is about Gen. Rommel. "No Bullets Fly" is about a Luftwaffe pilot that spared a B-17. "The Last Battle" is about the Wehrmacht teaming up with the Americans to defend a group of French political prisoners from execution by the SS. "Bismarck" is about Germany's flagship. "Wolfpack" is about the Kriegsmarine U-Boats. "Hearts of Iron" is about a German officer trying to protect German citizens as the Soviet Army overruns Berlin.

    • @Thomas Wright I agree, although there is a little problem with this answer, unless they have or will make a song about people who fought under the Nazi flag. Most people tend to think that the Soviet people were all victims of Stalin, but the sad truth is that a big percentage of them were psycho commies who had been killing and torturing their own people for decades. Have you heard of "The rape of Europe"? How the "liberating" soviet army was raping everything female (from 8 years old to 80, from German women to Russian women) on their path to Berlin? It's the most disgusting crime against humanity after the holocause and the holodomor...

    • Sabaton doesn't take sides; they sing about the people who fought those conflicts. This song isn't meant to glorify Stalin, but to honor those who put their lives on the line to defend their country. Whatever horrible things attributed to Stalin (and there are plenty of them), in this battle, the Nazis were the aggressors; they struck first. It still put the Russian people in a position where they had to fight back. But if you want another perspective from Sabaton, look up "Soldier of Three Armies." It is about Finnish soldier Lauri Torni (aka Larry Thorne) who fought back against the Soviets invading his homeland. Torni also joined the Nazi SS, not because he believed in Nazi ideology, but because he wanted to continue to fight against Soviets. Then, after the war, he migrated to America and joined the US Army. A remarkable story about a man driven by his love for his homeland, but also hatred for those who invaded, and his intention to keep fighting even after his country had stopped fighting. But there are people - particularly Russians - who hate Lauri Torni because they view him as a Nazi. But I can't help but see the same spirit between them and Lauir when they just want to fight and protect the land they love.

  • Тапок горд! Круто с обоих сторон!

  • Хах, 2/3 комментариев - русские

  • those fake inteview are pathetic, and music of this band is for idiots only

    • Funny. I was going to say the same about you and your inane comment. You say this band's music is for idiots? And yet, here you are commenting on it. Why? You'd think that such a wise person of such excellent tastes would have something better to do.

  • Cool 🤩🤩🤩🤩😎😎😎😎

  • This song and Barbarossa patch for Hoi4? *knee punching intensifies*

  • Красавы!

  • 👍👍👍
