This song about the battle of Wizna where 720 Polish soldiers held a German force of 40.000 in a stalemate for three days during the invasion of Poland in 1939, is sheer metal delight from start to finish. It is total perfection in its own right and captures a certain essence. In addition to a celebratory party spirit, the song harbors some spiritual inner strength which comes to life by simple means, through Joakim's deep voice, the pounding drums, heavy guitar riffs and the superb lyrics. The song holds ideals of strength, honor, pride and courage high and celebrates these with a sincere embrace and a kick in the nuts. It is a live favorite that never fails to bring out my inner berserker and one of the songs I will never tire of.
