2013, Civil War are a Swedish band rising from Daniel Myhr, Daniel Mullback, Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, former members of Sabaton, their former backline tech, Stefan ´Pizza` Eriksson and Patrick Johnasson (Astral Doors). ,,King Of The Sun" opens with a quiet intro and bursts forth like an army coming over the hill, and once Patrik Johansson vox launch into the fray you realise you are in for something pretty damned special. Double bass drums as rapid as Gatling gun fire opens First To Fight", a song that could probably slide into a Iron Maiden set unnoticed. It's lightning fast, surefooted and never misses a beat, with a voice that sounds like it's grown hoarse yelling at the Viking Gods of war. For those interested in history you will probably have realised the album title has been stolen from THE KILLER ANGELS, the Pulitzer prize winning book about the battle of Gettysburg by Michael Shaara. ,,Gettysburg" pays homage to that with another rousing call to arms, both historically and musically.
