Metal-Trails.com consudtced an interview with Swedish metallers SABATON prior to the band's October 13 concert at Grosse Freiheit 36 in Hamburg, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.
SABATON has announced details of its most explosive London show to date. As part of their seven-date U.K. tour, the mighty militant metalheads will bring a fiery arsenal of punishing pyro from Sweden to England for the first time.
To document the occasion, SABATON has decided to professionally film and record the November 9 show in London for a future live video DVD and Blu-ray release.
SABATON 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
