Success in the charts for Sabaton

With their new album “The Great War”, Swedish heavy metal heroes Sabaton have reached fantastic chart results all over the world, including the #1 top position in Germany & Switzerland, as well as their home country Sweden. Recently, the band proudly announced their European tour dates for “The Great Tour”, with fellow Swedes Amaranthe and Finnish cello rockers Apocalyptica supporting.

Skillet – Victorious

The title track “Victorious” for example is brilliant and when I sum up 2019 it will definitely be there listed along with Avantasias “Moonglow” and Pulgasaris “Alive Again” and probably some more songs when I make a chart over the best songs this year.

The Diary of Jane – Chapter 11: The magnificent creations

But sometimes my mind just stops at some phrase – like getting stuck and letting your head wander off after hearing a line in a song, like in Beast In Black’s ”Blind and Frozen”, where we have the line ”…as I read those letters you wrote me” –  what letters, what did they say? I will just never know.

Perhaps I’m crazy.

However when I read about this I got this absolutely brilliant idea to rank my own chart containing the 666 best albums of all time. And to do this in a fair way I have to listen to all albums that’s been released.

Sabaton – The Great War

If I’d break it down; I really like the guitar sound in “Seven Pillars of Wisdom”, the title track is really massive and the piano part in the beginning of “The End of the War to End all Wars” is great. But I still get quite tired by listening to the whole album and in the end it gives me nothing I haven’t heard from Sabaton ten times before.

Between a rock and a hard place

At the upcoming Sabaton Open Air my band NERVED is supposed to be playing after doom legends Candlemass and just before Sweden’s currently biggest metal act Sabaton? How the F did we end up in that slot? Honestly, I don’t know.

Majestica - Above The Sky

Majestica’s Night Call Girl is single!

“‘Night Call Girl’ is a huge tribute to the 80’s metal we grew up with. It’s a mix between Gary Moore, Rick Springfield, Europe and Journey. The lyrics are all about the classical catch phrases they used in those days and it has one of the best “sing along” choruses on the album. Power metal doesn’t go far away from 80’s metal so that’s why we felt that this tribute to our 80’s hair metal heroes fits great on »Above The Sky«.”

Sabaton announce their march into “The Great War”

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’.
