Sounds | Sabaton, Fields Of Verdun

Nieuwe reviewers wil zeggen dat we een breder spectrum (aan o.a. Rock/Metal) zullen aanbieden.

De Zweedse Power Metal band Sabaton bv., met een eerste single uit hun nieuwe album The Great War, dat op 19 july verschijnt via Nuclear Blast. Wie er zich op gooit en wat hij/zij ervan vindt, lees je binnenkort op deze pagina. De Zweden staan trouwens op 2 february 2020 in de Lotto Arena!

Een woordje uitleg

Bassist Pär Sundström comments: "We choose 'Fields of Verdun' to be the first single since we felt it represent the album perfect, a classic SABATON metal song which we cannot wait to include in the future setlists.

The story of the battle of Verdun is also very representative for the album since it has all elements that identifies with ‘The Great War’. Verdun is so much WW1 that we decided to hold the first album presentation in this city, inviting journalists from around the world to not just hear the album, but also understand the story behind it. It is the first single from the upcoming album even if we just released 'Bismarck', but that song is not from the upcoming album. We decided to write 'Bismarck' outside the album since the story does not connect to WW1 and also that it was recorded at a different time. The meaning of this song was a tribute to all fans who have contributed over the years by sending us ideas for future songs, please continue with that!" The release of SABATON’s ninth full-length record perfectly coincides with the band’s 20th anniversary and the concept album is based on events during the First World War.
