Sabaton
Heroes

Boys and girls gather around! It's time for our history class! The latest Sabaton album is out! It's been two years since the famous split between vocalist Joakim Brodén, bassist Par Sundström and the rest of the guys and in the meantime we have seen Civil War, the new project of the four departed, release a pretty good EP and a full length, so the question remains; what would Sabaton sound like now and how good would it be?

SABATON: ‘To Hell And Back’ Lyric Video Released

The official lyric video for "To Hell And Back", the new single from Swedish metallers SABATON, can be seen below. The track is available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. "Heroes", the new album from SABATON, will be released on May 16 via Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork for the effort was created by Péter Sallai. A number of bonus tracks will be made available, including cover versions of songs originally written and recorded by METALLICA, BATTLE BEAST and RAUBTIER. METALLICA - "For Whom The Bell Tolls" Says SABATON: "All of us are old fans of METALLICA. The choice of the song was difficult, but we all could agree on that one. As an addition, 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' was the first heavy metal song ever performed on a stage by Pär." BATTLE BEAST - "Out Of Control" Says SABATON: "BATTLE BEAST was our secret guest at our latest Sabaton Cruise and we all enjoyed watching them perform their songs live. We thought we wanted to support young and upcoming bands and decided to do a cover of them." RAUBTIER - "En Hjältes Väg" Says SABATON: "RAUBTIER are our brothers from the north of Sweden. We have played together countless times and in the past, and Thobbe used to be in this band. At a special concert in 2012, Joakim performed this song live together with RAUBTIER and it awoke the idea of doing a cover version. Seeing to the song title it was also a natural choice for our latest album, 'Heroes'." "Heroes" track listing: Standard jewel case: 01. Night Witches 02. No Bullets Fly 03. Smoking Snakes 04.

On January 25, Swedish metallers SABATON played a special gig at the Må Bättre gym in Falun, Sweden. They performed live during a spinning class, while simultaneously participating in the workout themselves. Official video footage of this special event can be seen below. "We made special mic holders in order to be able to position them on the spinning cycle," SABATON vocalist Joakim Brodén told the Dala-Demokraten newspaper prior to the performance. "Everyone, apart from our drummer, Hannes [Van Dahl], will [actively participate in] the class." SABATON will release its new album, "Heroes", on May 16 via Nuclear Blast Records.

SABATON: ‘Heroes’ Alternate Artwork Unveiled

Swedish metallers SABATON will release their new album, "Heroes", on May 16 via Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork for the CD was created by Péter Sallai. There will also be "alternate artwork for some editions," according to the band. The cover artwork for both the standard and special "Heroes" editions can be seen below. "We had the title in mind since before we even recorded 'Carolus Rex' and we already had ideas for artwork years ago," says SABATON bassist Pär Sundström. "We had a few different ones to choose from, but when we saw this one, we knew it was the right one for this album." "Heroes" is being recorded at The Abyss, the recording studio in Pärlby outside Ludvika, Sweden owned and operated by record producer and musician Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN). "[Peter] still has some aces in his sleeves that we are sure will lift the new album," says Sundström. A video clip of the drum-recording sessions can be seen below. SABATON played its first show with new drummer Hannes Van Dahl on November 16, 2013 at the Metal Hammer Paradise festival in Germany. Regarding their decision to enlist Hannes Van Dahl, SABATON said in a statement: "For some time, there has been rumors about Robban [Bäck] coming back soon, or that Snowy [Shaw] would fill in for a while longer, or even take Robban's place permanently behind the drums. "To put an end to these rumors we now present our new full-time member in SABATON: Hannes Van Dahl. "Hannes has previously played in EVERGREY, which we have toured with in the past, and he has also worked side by side with us as drum technician for Snowy during his time in SABATON." SABATON will return to the U.S. and Canada in April as direct support to American metallers ICED EARTH on their "Worldwide Plagues" North American tour. Opening each show on the six-week trek will be Dutch metallers REVAMP (featuring NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen). SABATON's last album, "Carolus Rex", was released on May 22, 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. The lyrics for the CD, which was made available in both English and Swedish, deal with the Swedish Empire (referring to the Kingdom of Sweden between 1561 and 1721). SABATON in 2012 parted ways with guitarists Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, drummer Daniel Mulback and keyboardist Daniel Mÿhr. Alternate cover:

EUROPE Says SABATON Is Not First Swedish Hard Rock Band To Go Platinum

Swedish hard rockers EUROPE have released the following statement: "So! A Swedish band called SABATON has gone platinum in Sweden, selling 40,000 units [of their latest album, 'Carolus Rex']. Nice one, lads! However, the media statement suggesting they are the first Swedish hard rock band ever to do so is a little ill-advised! Or, could it be we were 'punk'd' back in the '80s when presented with platinum discs for 'The Final Countdown'? No, wait! Ashton Kutcher wasn't even born back then! "Ah, the 80's! The days when stonewashed denim was cool, and platinum meant 100,000...!" The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) in Sweden has revised the sales requirements for albums to reach platinum status in the country three times in the last 17 years — from the pre-1996 level of 100,000 to the current 40,000.
