Sabaton - Part Ways With Four Members, New Line-Up Announced


Swedish heavy/power metallers Sabaton have confirmed line-up changes. Four members have departed with only Pär Sundström and Joakim Brodén remaining from the previous line-up and the band is currently searching for a keyboardist. The band also released a video presenting the new members.

The following statement was posted on the band's official website: "To end all rumors that Sabaton will stop touring, or even act/perform as a band, we can now present that Sabaton's new lineup will be as follows:

Joakim Brodén - Vocals
Pär Sundström - Bass
Chris Rörland - Guitars
Thobbe Englund - Guitars
Robban Bäck - Drums

"At the moment we are still searching for a keyboard player. Until we have found the right guy we will still have Daniel Myhr with us, in digital form, since he has specially recorded all keyboards for us to use on tour. Therefore, we are not cancelling any shows at all - the war machine of Sabaton will go on just as planned! The MKII of Sabaton is ready for the next chapter... To meet the new members for the first time, please have a look at this video."

The background music was so loud I could barely hear them. Compound that with their Swedish accents. Whaaaaa? Oh well I haven't listened to Sabaton in a while, probably an improvement.

What-ever. As long as Joakim is in the band I'm not too perturbed by this. Unless the music quality deteriorates that is. We will see.

Bit of a slaughter. Record companies doing or a vocalist with an ego?

Oh no, now there are both two Christoffer Rörland (it's the same guy as in Nocturnal Rites) and two Thorbjörn Englund (the same guy as in Winterlong) here on MS...

A staff guy...
At least Joakim didn't ditch out. He's what makes the band so epic. Otherwise they would be just like when Nightwish kicked Tarja out...

I have a feeling that whenever so many members leave at the same time, it means someone in the band is a total asshole/diva. I'd put my money on Jocke Brodén.

Indeed. It would be intressting to hear why 4 members leave at the same time and they didn't even tell us why. I have a feeling it was about money in the end.

Besides all the theories I've read here, I want to add that the background song sounds awesome, hope Carolus Rex will be a good album

Just heard the swedish version of the Carolus Rex song. For the first time I'm really psyched for a new Sabaton release.
