Char Tupper of MetalTitans.com recently conducted an interview with Swedish metallers SABATON. You can now watch the chat below.
SABATON is currently touring the U.S. and Canada as direct support to American metallers ICED EARTH on their "Worldwide Plagues" North American trek. Opening each show on the six-week tour are Dutch metallers REVAMP (featuring NIGHTWISH singer Floor Jansen).
SABATON's new album, "Heroes", will be released in Europe on May 16 via Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork for the CD 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.
"Heroes" was tracked at The Abyss, the recording studio in Pärlby outside Ludvika, Sweden owned and operated by record producer and musician Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN).
"We had the title in mind since before we even recorded 'Carolus Rex' and we already had ideas for artwork years ago," said 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."
SABATON played its first show with new drummer Hannes Van Dahl on November 16, 2013 at the Metal Hammer Paradise festival in Germany.
