Sabaton Comments On Album Reissues

Available for the first time in North America as non-imports, Sabaton’s first four full-length albums will be re-issued by Nuclear Blast on April 14th, 2011. 2005’s "Primo Victoria (Re-Armed)" will include six bonus tracks, two live songs, and a cover of Twisted Sister’s “The Beast.”

Sabaton bassist Pär Sundström shares the following memories of the "Primo Victoria" recording sessions, why the Twisted Sister cover was selected, and why the live show in Falun was such a special show for the band:

"When we entered the studio to start the recording, we had no idea how Sabatib was meant to sound. I remember sitting behind the mixing desk when we first listened to all the harmonies in the chorus of the title track; that was one of the best memories from a studio session ever. During our studio sessions, we sometimes recorded songs that were never on any albums, this includes the song ‘The Beast’ by Twisted Sister. Twisted Sister is a Top 5 Bands for all members of Sabatib and there are so many memories for us all in their music. For the re-releases, we also included some live songs and on this one, there are a couple of tracks recorded in our hometown of Falun, Sweden. Falun has become a annual show where people from all around the world come because this is where Sabatib always gives a unique and special show.”

The track listing for "Primo Victoria (Re-Armed)" is as follows:

1. Primo Victoria
2. Reign Of Terror
3. Panzer Battalion
4. Wolfpack
5. Counterstrike
6. Stalingrad
7. Into The Fire
8. Purple Heart
9. Metal Machine

10. The March To War
11. Shotgun
12. Into The Fire (Live In Falun, 2008)

Sabaton Recruits Dragonforce Member For Euro Tour

Swedish metal act Sabaton has announced that the band has recruited current Dragonforce bassist Frédéric Leclercq to take ove guitar duties for its forthcoming European tour. Leclercq will be filling for Sabaton guitarist Rikard Sundén, who is taken a short hiatus from the band for the birth of his first child. Sabaton commented on the addition of Leclercq by saying:

"Of course, it's the highest wish of Sabaton to tour with all six members, but this time Rikard wanted to pass and to ensure that the fans that come to these shows will get a good show we wanted to bring in a person with both great musical talent as well as a great stage act together with a chemistry that we know fits in Sabaton. We are sure that Frédéric is that person. This is, of course, a temporary situation, Frédéric is still a full member of Dragonforce and Rikard is still the guitar player of Sabaton. For the American tour that starts in April, Rikard will be on stage again, ready to rock and a hopefully a bit richer in life."

"We're very proud to announce the video for our song 'Uprising.' This video is a small insight to the events of the Warsaw Uprising that started on the 1:st of August 1944 and lasted for 63 days. We have been blessed with the opportunity to attend the ceremony remembering the fallen on 'W'-hour in Warsaw, as well as given the chance to meet and speak with veterans and survivors of the battle.

"This video is a tribute to all the brave men, women and children who fought and lost their lives in this battle, and we would like to ask you all to please spread the word about this video, and more importantly, this battle who sadly seems to be a forgotten chapter in history outside of Poland.

"And finally, a BIG thank you to the Radoslaw reenactment group who made sure that all details are historically correct, as well as actors Peter Stormare, Monika Buchowiec, and Mateusz Damiecki whose participation in this video hopefully will increase the interest in this video and the Warsaw Uprising."
