On November 6, Neuweltmusic conducted an interview with Swedish metallers SABATON at The Pint in Dublin, Ireland. You can now watch the chat below.
SABATON's November 9 concert in London was professionally filmed and recorded the for a future DVD and Blu-ray release.
The band is currently headlining "Swedish Empire Tour" with support from ELUVEITIE and WISDOM.
SABATON's new album, "Carolus Rex", was certified gold in the group's home country for sales in excess of 20,000 copies. (Note: The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry [IFPI] in Sweden has revised the sales requirements for albums to reach gold status in the country twice in the last seven years — from the pre-2002 level of 40,000 to the current 20,000.)
"Carolus Rex" was released on May 22 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 earlier in the year parted ways with guitarists Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, drummer Daniel Mulback and keyboardist Daniel Mÿhr. The band's new touring lineup is as follows:
Joakim Brodén - Vocals Pär Sundström - Bass Chris Rörland (NOCTURNAL RITES) - Guitar Thobbe Englund (WINTERLONG, RAUBTIER) - Guitar Robban Bäck (BALTIMOORE, PREY) - Drums
