Heavy metal heroes, SABATON, released their new record entitled The Last Stand, on August 19th through Nuclear Blast and have entered charts in 18 countries, as well as the worldcharts at a fantastic #6.
The band comments: “This hit song by the Dutch duo Bolland & Bolland was released already in 1982, and was also recorded by the British rock band Status Quo in 1986 and became a smash hit once again with high scores on many charts world wide. During the years many other bands have also recorded their versions of this great song. We recorded it as a bonus track for the “Carolus Rex” album back in 2012.”

Formed in Falun, Sweden in 1999, SABATON thoroughly researches their battle topics to ensure the songs paint accurate and objective portraits of the historical event they’re singing about, which are narrated from an omniscient point-of-view or in first-person as a soldier caught in the line of fire. Like their home country of Sweden, SABATON aims to remain politically neutral in their role as musical war historians. SABATON have reached their unshaken position as heavy metal’s AAA-torchbearer after releasing ingenious studio recordings and playing endless amount of unforgettable live shows with massive live production. The Last Stand is another unquestionable and bulletproof evidence of SABATON‘s top class abilities and it will be followed by the band’s most gigantic world tour to date.
