SABATON Storm The German Charts
June 1, 2010, 10 years ago
Swedish epic power metallers SABATON have stormed the German Media Control Charts at position #19 with their brand new album Coat Of Arms.
Commented singer Joakim Brodén: “Bloody hell! Who would have thought that six ugly swedish guys in camo pants would make the German charts? Damn, I can’t fucking believe it! Thanks to all the fans who made us hit the top 20! Noch ein Bier!!”
Coat Of Arms is out now on Nuclear Blast.
Sabaton recently uploaded a four-minute documentary about the shooting of their video for the song 'Uprising'. The lyrics of the song are about the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. The clip was shot in mid / late May in Poland – where the band themselves got an honorary citizenship – and can fairly be described as the biggest video clip in heavy metal with more than 200 people working on it 24/7, a budget beyond 100k, major actors featured (such as Peter Stomare, known from Hollywood productions like Prison Break, 8MM, Fargo, The Big Leboswki and more).
Check out the making of footage below.
Sabaton will devastate European stages during their World War Tour 2010. More on the band, including their live itinerary, at this location.
