Sabaton

Swedish band Sabaton have been a major force in the power metal field since the mid-2000s, but had to battle through significant difficulties to get there, which may explain their eventual creative obsession with everything war-related. Originally founded in 1999 and comprised of Joakim Brodén (vocals and keyboards), Rickard Sundén (guitar), Oskar Montelius (guitar), Daniel Myhr (keyboards, beginning in 2006), Pär Sundström (bass), and Richard Larsson (drums), the enterprising group quickly produced two demo tapes that were later released in a limited edition as Fist for Fight in 2002.

But after inking a deal with Italian label Underground Symphony, Sabaton saw their first would-be official album, Metalizer, inexplicably held out of the marketplace for a full two years (it, too, belatedly reached the public in 2007). Tired of waiting, the members of Sabaton (now including new drummer Daniel Mullback), once again took matters into their own hands, and financed the recording of another album, Primo Victoria, which was officially released in 2005 by the Black Lodge label. It also opened the floodgates for a slew of popular singles and battle metal LPs to follow, including 2006's Attero Dominatus, 2008's The Art of War, and 2010's Coat of Arms, all of them bursting at the seams with historic and mythical chronicles of battle set to anthemic power metal. The band became increasingly successful across Europe, witnessed on 2011's live album, World War Live: Battle of the Baltic Sea, featuring a dozen tracks and ten different countries. The following year's Carolus Rex hit number one in Sweden and Poland, but it was the last for that lineup; 2014's Heroes featured new guitarists Chris Rörland and Thobbe Englund plus new drummer Hannes van Dahl alongside the stalwarts Brodén and Sundström. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

Please put up heroes already
When is Heroes coming out on here?
Awesome band
Sabaton kills it, Sweden 's answer too Manowar. Power metal rules!!!!!
I'm about to be the most ever hated on this page but idc, in the picture the leftmost member looks a lot like smooth MC groove.
They have a new album out : heroes
Saw these guys live in a little place called scout bar. So close to them, you could FEEL the energy these guys put out. THIS, is metal.
Sabaton is the best band I have I ever heard in this metal genre
This is everything power metal should be, all in one epic song.
reminds me of the early days of metal - and I was there
Beautiful… in a kind of dark and twisted way.

Gotta love that deep voice, especially in contrast to the higher-pitch e d voices most power metal vocalists tend to have.
They're way underappreci a t e d .
best band on earth
This band is addictive
Amazing, Simply Amazing Band.
This band is beyond words. So good.
this is awesome my new station
i agree nyrmetros, the Metal scene has always been a kind of taboo subculture in the states. its too bad really. but is forced upon the masses by the media and television as a whole, they mindfuck us into liking POP music... who the hell cares about the billboard... . . .
Hell yeah, SABATON!

It's amazing that bands like Sabaton can play in front of half a million people in Europe, but they come Stateside and play in small clubs for 200 people..... I don't get it..
I wish they had the album Art of War on here. That got me first into Sabaton.
Sabaton has 2 new fans. My son and I were at the battle of San Bernardino. They were great. My 11 year old son was taken onstage by joakim and he gave him his shades. Cant get him to take them off now. Rock on Sabaton!
All the metal genres you'll need right here.
Saw them at a tiny venue in Colorado a while back. Even in such a small venue, they absolutely killed it; they create a fantastic atmosphere and get the entire crowd pumped, quite spectacular.

Sabaton ruled at the Battle for San Bernardino where they opened for Iron Maiden. They blew away Megadeth and only Anthrax was equally exciting.
Saboton is awesome live!

They were fantastic this weekend at ProgPower in Atlanta. I am glad that my teenage sons got me into this band.

Sabaton and Alestorm are my 2 current favorite bands right now. Both have a unique sound that I can wrap my head around.

Sabaton was instantly put on my list of favorite artists.
It's so cool to still have Metal Bands like Sabaton around. I'm 48, so I've been around awhile. They are definately a blend of everything I love about Metal. I just wish my friends could appreciate it
Saw them on 70000 tons of metal, and to be honest, never heard of them before in the states. But nontheless they put on 2 great shows... Good Band...
Best shows ever
Saw them live in Melbourne as a support act for Nightwish. Best concert ever. Sabaton are awesome
First song I heard by them was union two years ago , since then they have been my favorite band
Primo Victoria is the first song I ever heard from them. AWESOME group!
Great bands play great songs

I love this band, they brought me back to metal.
What? No Art of War? Oh well, certainly enjoying Carolus Rex
Sabaton was my gateway band for modern metal. I kind of can't listen to regular contemporary rock now.
Love this band.
