Nuclear Blast also commented: “Nuclear Blast is very stoked to announce another great signing: SABATON - one of the most promising upcoming bands in heavy metal these days! Although they have already released four great albums, they are still unknown to the majority of the metal legions - which is a shame! We noticed the band's potential to become one of the leaders of nowadays metal scene - especially by visiting their festival appearances and club shows. Together Nuclear Blast and SABATON are prepared for the next step to bring the band on a much higher level! Watch out for their new album in spring 2010!”
Sabaton has issued the following statement about seeking fan input on their new album:
"Finally the time has come to make another album. Many people have asked us if it will be another album with war themes, and of course it will. The lyrics based on historical battles has become the mark of Sabaton and we plan not to leave that, at least for now. And like on the last album we will now ask all of you fans out there if you have any ideas to help us write the album.
"So, any ideas for songs about battles can be sent to email@example.com, please include links to information and facts also. Every idea will be read and considered but please remember that Sabaton is mainly focused on more recent events so please do not ask us to write songs about vikings, knights... Other bands do that better than us.
"Please come with ideas that is more unknown, the perfect concept for a song were the story of the 720 Polish soldiers who inspired us to write the song 40:1. We await your ideas."
