Sabaton - New Album 'The Great War' Coming In July


Sabaton are excited to share and reveal the title and artwork of their forthcoming studio album that will be released worldwide through Nuclear Blast Records on July 19th, 2019. This ninth full length record, that will see the light of day right in time for the band's 20th anniversary, will be a concept album named The Great War, covering stories from the First World War.

The band has started the recordings exactly 100 years after the end of the First World War (11/11/1918) and took 3 months of intensive work to complete the album together with their long term producer and partner Jonas Kjellgren at Black Lounge Studios. Furthermore, the album has been mastered by Maor Appelbaum and the artwork was once again created by Peter Sallaí.

"This is not the first time we sing about stories from this period in time, but now we felt the timing was right to make a full concept album about this war", the band comments.




"This is the biggest album we have taken on so far, there is so much depth and story around the songs that we never had before", bassist Pär Sundström satets. "Expect many surprises as we have tried new things and we also went back in time to a concept we know a lot of you love. The Great War has been created side by side with the Sabaton History Channel to make 2019 the most exciting year in our 20 year history."

Let's hope that for this concept album there will be songs longer than 4 minutes and with complex structure.

SSUS's rabid review coming up.
Start your bets, folks? What's it gonna be? I'm going to bet for a low-to-mid 9 review. Like a 9,4 or 9,2. We gotta have some difference inbetween albums.

My bet is that Marcel is going to contest him and will write a review himself. Score is probably going to be in the same general area.

Three incoming reviews within a 9 - 9.4 bracket? Whoa, sounds like an excellent album indeed

Oh have you indeed? I invite you to publish it then, I don't think SSUS would mind that much, one thing to worry less, and Marcel, well, he'll have to wipe his mouth then.

You know how it is with Sabaton. Their releases are consistently brilliant, so I wrote a review of one of their older albums. I will just replace song names with new song names and that's it. A 9+ score is a certainty.

You know as well as I do that the score would be closer to 2 or 3 than 9 or 10 if I were to review a Sabaton release

Black Sabbath or Sabaton, should be right up your alley, no? I see no problem you rating both around nine.
