What happened to Swedes SABATON in the past couple of years equals a victorious march: sold out shows, fantastic albums chock full of epic power metal, thrilled fans worldwide!!! On May 25th, another glorious chapter was added to their story of success: “Carolus Rex” is the seventh SABATON studio album and boasts plenty of future metal anthems plus a sophisticated lyrical concept about the Swedish king Carl XII.
SABATON will be joined by Swiss act ELUVEITIE who can be rightfully called the leaders of the “New Wave Of Folk Metal”! Their latest opus magnum “Helvetios” (2012) saw them walk on new paths in the folk/pagan metal sector and lets them shine as magnificent songwriters. This varied package will be rounded off by Hungary´s WISDOM who serve us hymnic and melodic power metal! Their album “Judas” was released incl. bonus song via NoiseArt Records on August 24th and is a real treat for lovers of the classic BLIND GUARDIAN sound!
SABATON have been nominated for several Metal Hammer (GER) awards: Best international band / best live band / metal-anthem On September 14, SABATON will perform at the Award show in Berlin!
