Sabaton announce their march into “The Great War”

As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, the Swedish heavy metal heroes Sabaton will release their ninth full length album “The Great War” through Nuclear Blast Records on July 19th,  a concept album covering stories from the First World War.

You can now watch the video for the single “Fields Of Verdun” below:

Bassist Pär Sundström comments: “We choose ‘Fields of Verdun’ to be the first single since we felt it represent the album perfect, a classic SABATON metal song which we cannot wait to include in the future setlists. The story of the battle of Verdun is also very representative for the album since it has all elements that identifies with ‘The Great War’. Verdun is so much WW1 that we decided to hold the first album presentation in this city, inviting journalists from around the world to not just hear the album, but also understand the story behind it.
