SABATON: VIDEO CLIP FROM SWEDISH EMPIRE LIVE
“Ghost Division,” the first live video clip from the upcoming Swedish Empire Live DVD by Sweden’s heavy metal superstars SABATON, is now available for viewing on YouTube: http://youtu.be/9FkYxnm70vg Relentless touring and soul-soaring, high-energy live performances saturated with fist-pumping anthems that celebrate the triumph of the human spirit have long been SABATON’s specialty. With the largest live production in the history of the band and filmed in front of 600,000+ enthusiastic fans at their headlining festival appearance at Poland’s Woodstock Festival in 2012, you will experience for yourself why SABATON was selected to open for IRON MAIDEN on their European stadium run this July and why they’re one of the most popular up-and-coming bands in heavy metal. The captured visual proof of their hair-raising, spine-tingling experiences in Poland – where band members enjoy status as honorary citizens – will be made available in DVD/CD format in North America on October 29th.

On Friday, September 13th, SABATON will share the stage with IRON MAIDEN, MEGADETH, ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, and OVERKILL at the sold-out Battle Of San Bernardino in Southern California. SABATON’s last studio album, Carolus Rex, achieved the band’s highest first-week sales in the U.S. and debuted at #29 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart the week following its May 2012 release. ABOUT SABATON: Formed in Falun, Sweden in 1999, the band is best known for singing almost exclusively about historical wars & battles, a direction SABATON members decided to take on after watching the 1999 Academy Award-winning film Saving Private Ryan. “For us it means a lot more to write about historical events than to make up stories,” says bassist Pär Sundström, one of the main songwriters. The band thoroughly researches their topics to ensure the songs paint accurate & 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, SABATON aims to remain politically neutral in their role as musical war historians.
