What? Sabaton are nazis? Im so shocked i almost dropped my Goatmoon records...


ayetherestherub69

I just wanna listen to power metal bro why does this always happen to me


IsKujaAPowerButton

They hate us bro. They hate us. But do they have a Silmarillion album? No


Ancalagoth

Blind guardian is good power metal though.


Morfeu321

Angra is kinda good too


damgas92

Rhapsody above all


chapstick159

Y’all sleeping on Edguy


ResidentsEnjoyer

They still get angry so it’s still funny, NSPM will never be accepted here


SpringDragon-27

What’s nspm?


ResidentsEnjoyer

National socialist power metal


bbaahhaammuutt

All you betas hating on people for the colour of their skin instead of what bands they listen to


basedkingrectum

Why not both?


norush1212

Oh no I’ve been described as a fake smug crying spy jack for hating nazis


borisac2

I portrayed both sides as crying wojaks because the sabaton fans need to stfu and so do the people fighting them


numetalposer

More like sabaton fans need to grow a pair. Its a meme sub, no one's fighting them.


borisac2

I’m saying that the sabaton fans need to grow a pair and that the “sabaton fans are nazis” joke is over done


CarrionKindStranger

That's the build up, the joke are the sabaton nerds


numetalposer

The joke is over done but it still manages to get a rise out of sabaton nerds.


borisac2

True


TheIndeliblePhong

This meme literally uses that joke you feckin hypocrite


borisac2

No, I’m mocking people who make that joke because it’s so overdone, that’s why the one making the joke is a wojak and not a chad


Draconic_destruction

#HEIL JOAKIM!!!


Ancalagoth

While they might not be Nazis, a lot of their fans are. Also they just suck in general due to being borderline pop with no real riffs to speak of. Also you seem to claim antifascism is smooth brained and religious zealots are chads. Fuck you.


Lord_of_Hedgehogs

>Also they just suck in general due to being borderline pop with no real riffs to speak of. Flair checks out.


borisac2

I’m not saying that anti fascists are bad, I’m saying that people who think that the band itself is fascist are bad, also you and all the other commenters are not noticing that i also portrayed the sabaton fan as the crying neckbeard wojak


BagpipesAreCool

Ok nazi


Ancalagoth

Yes, but in the second row you are portraying what appears to be a crusader as a chad. I should not have to explain how the crusades were crimes against humanity.


borisac2

It is not simply a crusader, it is meant to represent powerwolf, which is a band that parodies the crusades, I am portraying the crusader as the chad ironically


Ancalagoth

Well there's nothing to indicate the second half is referring to powerwolf in any way or that it is ironic, so that's on you.


borisac2

There actually is, the one saying “deus vult” is meant to look like the band’s lead singer


regimentIV

You did a good job at that, it was instantly clear to me that that is Powerwolf makeup (and I don't even listen to them). Don't know what that guy is on about; maybe he doesn't know about Powerwolf (though they are thematized frequently on this sub).


Ancalagoth

I do not instantly associate 'gray' with powerwolf. I also do not listen to powerwolf because they are the same type of bad, poppy, riffless modern power metal as Sabaton.


_-null-_

You really should. Plenty of war crimes and massacres were committed but to condemn the whole of it as a crime against humanity is impossible without putting war itself into that category. The crusaders didn't attempt to exterminate the Muslim population of the Levant nor did they force them to convert. The northern crusades fit into the category though, I will give you that.


basedkingrectum

Crusades were a reaction to Muslim aggression.


wiltold27

Have you ever read a book?


Curly_Toenail

Totally. I've read many books in my lifetime. Want to start a book club?


basedkingrectum

Have you and which one?


wiltold27

"Which one" bruhhhhh you're killing me


basedkingrectum

So the answer is you haven't studied the subject at all? The "have you read a book" guy is a clueless moron, what a surprise.


wiltold27

Nah nah nah, you can have a shit opinion but saying stuff about history so broad and not backing it up is utter twattery. How does me not naming the singular book you claim to know of mean i haven't studied this subject?


basedkingrectum

>How does me not naming the singular book you claim to know of mean i haven't studied this subject? What... are you on drugs? You started this all by asking me if I "read a book". When that happened I presumed that you in fact did "read a book". And that you'll explain to me how and why the "stuff about history" I said is incorrect. Since you seem to be unable to, you're likely not a real professional historian with a PhD after all. Again, what a surprise.


YeeterKeks

Maybe the first one, which was sent as a call for help from the Byzantine Emperor to the Pope against the Caliphate's encroachment into Anatolia. After that, they were much less a reactive effort and much more a proactive effort, if I recall.


SusLord1

you are so cringe its a meme take a fucking joke


Pannbenet

Tbh, if a band or it’s lyrics isn’t bigoted, gory, misogynist, misandrist, -phobic, raunchy, satanic, medicinal, or in any way, shape, or form despicable, are they even brootal? Sabaton, if anything, aren’t controversial enough. (Though “Carolus Rex” in their native language did stir up some kerfuffle back in the days. Still their best album, if only because it was actually artistic compared to anything else they did)


COaBwtCO

Imagine thinking that being anti-nazi isn't something someone should say and be openly


borisac2

I’m not saying being anti nazi is bad, I’m saying that sabaton being a nazi band is obviously a joke made just to piss off sabaton fans, which it has succeeded at


COaBwtCO

It's a joke about a flatly true statement


borisac2

I do not personally agree with you, however I am not here to start an argument, only to say that both sides of the r/sabaton vs r/metalmemes war are dumb

I can’t wait for someone to read through my comments looking for a reason to talk shit, see that and have a stroke


OkNovel2425

bruh sabaton is saying that “when freedom burns […], dreams fade away, and all hope turns to dust” talking about war crimes and holocaust and you are telling me they are neo-nazis for that? grow up, everybody listens to whatever they want stop this “sabaton nazi” thing. i dont even give a f sabaton memes are blacklisted on this subreddit.


borisac2

No, sabaton being nazis is a joke made to piss off sabaton fans, im saying that the sabaton fans need to stop taking the bait, and the people saying that sabaton is a nazi band need to stop because the sabaton nazi joke is over used


OkNovel2425

you are putting the fault on the fish (sabaton fans) for taking the bait from the fisher (funny meme creators)? shouldn’t the fisher just dont throw the bait at all? joking about a band for being nazi is not funny


Virixiss

Well, most Sabaton memes you see recently are all made by Sabaton fans crying about being jokingly called nazis. If they would just STFU, the meme could die in peace. It honestly wasn't even that good of a joke, but the reactions made it way funnier than it should have been. It's like "Don't Feed the Trolls" should be an internet rule or something.


IsKujaAPowerButton

Power metal in general is quite frowned upon in this sub. Which I can't understand, but well...


Ancalagoth

Good power metal isn't. Modern power metal is frowned upon for forsaking good riffs for poppy vocal melodies.


IsKujaAPowerButton

I wouldn't say modern power metal is bad as is. I agree there is more shit, but there are some good bands. Nothing comparable to the 80s-90s though


Ancalagoth

Oh sure, I wasn't trying to generalize ALL modern power metal, there's still good stuff, just like there are still proper thrash bands that don't play crossover pizza thrash shit (also calling such bands crossover is an insult to actual crossover thrash bands like Suicidal Tendencies). The issue is that the shitty stuff has become far more popular and more common than the good stuff.


basedkingrectum

Since when is "a racist nazi band" an insult?


nosleepincrooklyn

Yeah, that’s usually indicator of a record I should probably by and put in my spicy section


FirstBlood1099

Jsut sabaton for furries


WASDToast

Sabaton’s just garbage musically lol


Draconic_destruction

you are giving me a new torture weapon! dont do that
