For this tour, New York enthusiasts will take in the Viking ship spectacle at the Best Buy Theatre on October 18th. Tickets will go on sale on May 30th. Keep an eye on amonamarth.com/tour for details.

Comments the band of the upcoming trek: “Yes, we are coming back to North America, and this time we’re doing Canada and the US together with our friends in Sabaton and Skeletonwitch! We can also announce that we’ll be bringing the Viking ship to the show in New York City! So get ready North America, this time we’ll take no prisoners!”

SABATON – BANNED FROM PLAYING RUSSIA?

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal bands, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, Power Metal, power metal bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on August 17, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Sabaton - promo band banner - band logo - 2013

SABATON were supposed to play a show in Russia next weekend. Now political people and organizations are trying to prevent the band from entering Russia due to some uneducated politician who tries to convince the Russian immigration and government that SABATON are nazis.

SABATON now released the following statement:

Did the Nazis win the battle of Stalingrad?

We have been reached by the news that some organizations and political representatives who claims to have studied us has come to the conclusion that Sabaton are a nazi band, and because of that our scheduled appearance at the 70th anniversary of the battle of Stalingrad should be cancelled. This show is to take place in a few weeks in Volgograd.

Further, these people believe that we will desecrate the Russian flag during our concert (which we have never done and of course have no intention of doing) and they are now trying their best to ban Sabaton from all of Russia!!!

We know that the people of Russia is far more intelligent than this and thus we hope that reason will allow us to play this concert in honor of this historical event and the Soviet soldiers who fought for their freedom.

Sabaton is and has always been a NON-POLITICAL and NON-RELIGIOUS band and holds a lot of respect to the veterans of war and the heroic and non-selfish acts that was performed in a time of need.

Ps. It should be noted that Sabaton has been awarded honorary membership of the “Scions of the 17th Airborne Division”, an organization that consists of veterans from the very same airborne division who fought against the nazis in “The battle of the Bulge” and “Operation Varsity”.

SABATON – Album Details, Cover Art and Track Listing Revealed for Carolus Rex

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, Power Metal, power metal bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on February 18, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Swedish epic Power Metallers SABATON have revealed a bunch of details for the bands upcoming album Carolus Rex which will be released May 25 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The lyrics for the CD deal with the Swedish Empire (referring to the Kingdom of Sweden between 1561 and 1721) and are sung entirely in Swedish.

Commented the band: “For the first time ever we have had an expert to help us out with the theme, the well-known Swedish historian Bengt Liljegren. We have also added some extra time in the studio to find the absolute right sound on ‘Carolus Rex’, and our producer, Peter Tägtgren, says that this album will mark a brand new standard for how a Heavy Metal album should sound like!”

Liljegren’s previously published works include acclaimed biographies of Karl XII among others. He also appeared in the popular Swedish TV series “Boston Tea Party”.

The album’s release will be followed by a two-year world tour.
