Sabaton Posts Update On New LP

Joakim Brodén, vocalist of Swedish power metal band Sabaton posted the following update on his Facebook page about the follow up to 2010's "Coat Of Arms":

"I can now officially announce that I suck at keeping in touch with friends, fans and family (and sometimes even the rest of the guys in the band) when I'm in songwriting mode :(

"However, this is the most critical time for the songwriting and finalization of the next Sabaton album, so please have patience and understanding for me not answering or taking long time to answer.

"Anyway, over 50% of the songs are all completed and done by now and I can honestly say that this album is gonna kick MY ass out the ballpark. Keep rocking and I'm really looking forward to hitting the stage for the final shows in Silja Galaxy, London and Antwerp!

Cheers / Joakim"

The band recently completed a highly successful North American tour in October.

Sabaton Comments On Album Re-Issue

Sabaton is re-releasing the band's first four albums for the first time as non-imports in North America on April 14th, 2011. The band has now announced the details for the re-release of 2008's "The Art of War (Re-Armed)."

Sabaton assist Pär Sundström discusses his relationship to Sun Tzu’s classic book of war strategy, his best memory from The Art Of War recording sessions, and why he believes “Cliffs Of Gallipoli” has secured its place in the band’s live set:

“The Art Of War album is based upon and inspired by the book - or war manual - written by Sun Tzu. We carefully read through the book which describes strategies in war and then tried to find actual events where the strategies from the book were used. It was a lot of work, but very interesting. My personal best memory from the recording sessions is that the song ‘The Price Of A Mile’ just appeared out of nowhere. The song was not intended to be part of the album, but I am glad it became a part of it. The song ‘Cliffs Of Gallipoli’ is definitively one of SABATON’s strongest songs, both due to the musical part but also to the lyrical part. We were also invited to Gallipoli where we learned the history of this battle during the First World War on location, which made the song even more emotional for us.”

The track listing for The Art Of War (Re-Armed) is as follows:

1. Sun Tzu Says
2. Ghost Division
3. The Art Of War
4. 40:1
5. Unbreakable
6. The Nature Of Warfare
7. Cliffs Of Gallipoli
8. Talvisota
9. Panzerkampf
10. Union (Slopes Of St. Benedict)
11. The Price Of A Mile
12. Firestorm
13. A Secret

Bonus Tracks:
14. Swedish Pagans
15. Glorious Land
16. Art Of War (Pre Production Demo)
17. Swedish National Anthem (Live at Sweden Rock Festival)
