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.”
