This is heard in albums Primo Victoria and Attero Dominatus where all of the songs, except final tracks, take inspiration from historical battles or war, such as the song "Counterstrike" which refers to the Six-Day War. Lyrical content drawn from World War II is prevalent and includes songs about Nazi Germany and the Holocaust; resistance movements in occupied Poland and Norway, the Battle of Berlin and Winter War in Finland. As of later albums, the band has started to incorporate elements of progressive metal.
