Does bombastic, hooky and energetic heavy metal force you to go crazy – in a good way? Well then, unless you have been crawling in muddy trenches for the last two decades, you have been exposed to the majestic firepower of history-loving metal giant SABATON. Since SABATON's inception on the threshold of a new millennium, these powerful Swedes have been conquering battlefield after battlefield – of course, only those musical ones, as no-one is supposed to perish under the treads of this merry metal machine – and along the wondrous path, SABATON has practically done and seen it all within the realms of explosive heavy metal. A grand pile of gold and platinum – quadruple platinum in case of 2012's "Carolus Rex" – selling albums? Check! Crowd-commanding headline shows at the largest European festivals, such as Polish Woodstock in front of half a million devoted admirers? Check!

As we speak, SABATON is reaching their twentieth anniversary as a band. What would be the most appropriate way to celebrate this tremendous milestone – and set our targets on the future at the same time? Naturally, there is only one option: to unleash the ninth missile into the heart of heavy metal world. In other words, SABATON's new album – another concept record from the vaults of fascinating military history – is completed and we couldn't be more satisfied with it, says SABATON bassist and lyricist Pär Sundström.„The title of our new magnum opus is "The Great War", and within its rich musical and lyrical journey, we dive into the gloomy and bloody atmosphere of World War I. This frantic war shook the whole planet during 1914-1918 and caused devastating consequences that still echo to this day. World War I was also supposed to be the war to end all the wars. Well, today, we unfortunately know little bit better...“

Once again, SABATON's musical rollercoaster has been masterminded by singer and lyricist Joakim Brodén.„"The Great War" is 100% pure SABATON album, but that being said, we’re also taking the listener on a wild ride with severe twists and turns“, smiles Brodén.In fact the ‘History Edition’ also includes narrated passages that set the scene for each song. If World War I was supposed to be the end (of that kind of inhuman behaviour), "The Great War" is nothing like that for SABATON: in fact, this colossal piece of art may eventually turn out to be the last piece in the puzzle leading for a total domination in the world of heavy metal.
