Swedish heavy metal heroes Sabaton have dominated the European heavy metal circuit for years, receiving prestigious awards including Metal Hammer’s Golden Gods Award for Best Breakthrough Artist.
Sabaton have played huge stadiums with bands such as Iron Maiden, as well as performing their biggest show ever at the Polish Przystanek Woodstock Festival in front of more than half a million fans.
After months of intense working in the famous Abyss Studios, Sabaton’s seventh full length, ‘Heroes’, is ready for release. ‘Heroes’ is once again a concept record based on different historical, 20th Century wars and battles, telling fascinating stories about men and women on battlefields and other dangerous locations.
Music-wise, ‘Heroes’ strikes the metal scene like a fighter aircraft from a clear sky. After serving some ultra-catchy, more traditional Sabaton epics (‘No Bullets Fly’, ‘Soldier Of 3 Armies’), this Falun quintet dive into more unprecedented territory with songs such as the powerful ‘The Ballad Of Bull’, the Western movie themed ‘To Hell And Back’ and the guitar driven ‘Resist And Bite’.
As a whole, ‘Heroes’ serves compelling mixture of epic metal anthems, carried out by ultra powerful guitar riffs, pounding drums, catchy choruses, ‘rough-meets-melody’ kind of vocals and incomparable solos, not forgetting totally new level of intensity and bombastic sound quality, thanks to world famous producer and Sabaton’s longtime guardian angel Peter Tägtgren. ‘Heroes’ introduces Sabaton as more varied and dynamically wider than ever before but, at the same time, this new record still possess every imaginable element you may expect from these heroic Northmen
