SABATON Reveals New Lyric Video for “Sparta”

DESTRUCTION - Thrash Anthems II

Swedish heavy metal heroes SABATON – best known for singing almost exclusively about historical wars and battles, a direction the band members were inspired by after watching the 1999 Academy Award-winning film Saving Private Ryan – released their latest, highly-acclaimed record, The Last Stand, on August 19 through Nuclear Blast and have entered the Top 10 of the World Charts with a fantastic #6. This result shows that SABATON are more successful globally than ever before (for example, taking the #1 spot in Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Czech Republic, #2 in Germany, Austria, Poland and many more).

Today, SABATON release a new lyric video for the song ‘Sparta’.

The band comments: “The battle of Thermopylae is in many ways one of the most iconic last stands in history. King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans were certainly not as alone as portrayed in the famous movie “300”, but in the end it was their sacrifice that would be remembered by the world to come. An amazing story of the Greek nation states which would rather die than lose their freedom.”

About SABATON:

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.
