CIVIL WAR Feat. Ex-SABATON Members: 'Braveheart' Video Released

"Braveheart", the new video from CIVIL WAR — the Swedish metal band featuring former SABATON members Rikard Sundén (guitar), Daniel Mullback (drums) and Daniel Mÿhr (keyboards) alongside singer Patrik Johansson (ASTRAL DOORS, LION'S SHARE), and guitarist Petrus Granar — can be seen below. The song is taken from CIVIL WAR's sophomore album, "Gods And Generals", which was released in May via Napalm Records.

Asked about the "Gods And Generals" album title, Patrik Johansson told Sound The Charge! web site: "Well, when we were about to come up with our debut, we came over this trilogy about the American civil war and the titles were so fucking good. We just said: this is us. However I cannot guarantee you that our next album will be called 'The Last Full Measure'…. It would be too easy, right?"

Johansson also spoke about CIVIL WAR's SABATON connection and whether it has made it easier for CIVIL WAR to get tours and recognition in the metal scene. He said: "Of course, this whole SABATON thing has made it easier for us to achieve fame. No doubt about that. On the other hand it is tough for us to convince the 'real' music fans that we actually are a good band since most of the real metal fans hate SABATON. So it's both good and bad."

CIVIL WAR's debut CD, "The Killer Angels", was certified gold in Sweden by the International Federation Of The Phonographic Industry for sales in excess of 20,000 copies.

"The Killer Angels" was distributed in Sweden via the June 2013 issue of Sweden Rock Magazine and each copy of the magazine containing the CD was counted towards the certification; the album was also sold separately.

CIVIL WAR's debut EP was released on November 13, 2012 via Despotz Records.
