INTERVIEW : Joakim Brodén from SABATON talks 'The Great War' and the bands 20th anniversary
For the two decades the mighty Swedish metal machine known as SABATON have been taking the worlds stereo's and stages by storm. With eight critically acclaimed gold and platinum selling albums, countless tours and headline spots on some of the biggest festivals around the globe, SABATON have become an unstoppable force in metal and show no sign of slowing down.
After the release of their previous ARIA Charting masterpiece ‘The Last Stand’, Sabaton have regrouped, reloaded and gearing up to top it with their latest epic ninth album 'The Great War' which concept tackles some of the heroic to harrowing stories behind World War I, taking their sound and fury to a whole new level while managing to make it an educational and insightful experience through their deep research on the subject matter and mini documentary tie in's through the bands Sabaton History youtube channel. In the lead up to the release of The Great War', Nev Pearce from the Everblack Podcast sat down with the bands charismatic front man Joakim Brodén to talk about the creation of the album, both historic and standard editions and the research that went into it, the Sabaton History youtube channel that analyses the stories behind the tracks, the bands 20th anniversary and more!

If World War I was supposed to be the end (of that kind of inhuman behavior), "The Great War" is nothing like that for SABATON: in fact, this colossal piece of art may eventually turn out to be the last piece in the puzzle leading for a total domination in the world of heavy metal. „SABATON's next world tour – obviously titled "The Great Tour" – begins with number of European festival appearances, including our 20-year-anniversary headline spot on holy grounds of Wacken Open Air and will hopefully see them return down under in the near future. SABATON - 'The Great War' will be released on July 19 through Nuclear Blast.
