Sabaton @ Playstation Theater

Sabaton is at long last on the headlining stages of NYC once more. You don’t want to miss this show and their support from Leaves’ Eyes and Battle Beast (who perform here for the very first time).

Label: Nuclear Blast Records
Release Date: 10/14/2016
Genre: Power Metal
Rating: 3.5/5

While they are laying waste to venues across the North American region, those mighty military minded Metal maniacs of Sabaton have surprised fans with the release of a brand new digital single called “In The Army Now”. The tune itself is a cover but one that is totally new to my ears so I have added the bands own comment about it before I continue.

“This hit song by the Dutch duo Bolland & Bolland was released already in 1982, and was also recorded by the British rock band Status Quo in 1986 and became a smash hit once again with high scores on many charts worldwide. During the years many other bands have also recorded their versions of this great song. We recorded it as a bonus track for the “Carolus Rex” album back in 2012.”

I guess it’s been a little over a month since I shared my thoughts about the first single from Sabaton’s upcoming “The Last Stand” album (see THIS LINK if you missed it) and now they have dished out a second with “Blood Of Bannockburn”. Before I played the track, I poked around Wikipedia and learned a bit about this point in Scottish history but will use what the band has provided first for your indulgence.

Ever since witnessing the overpowering live presence of Sweden’s Sabaton several years ago, I’ve done my best to become one of those “catch-up” fans by snagging some of their older works and vowing to support any tour that I was able to be a part of when they came to our neck of the woods. Earlier today the band released the first single from their upcoming album “The Last Stand” which continues the presentation of what I have been referring to as “War History Metal” with “The Lost Battalion”. Here’s what the bands official website says about the tune.
