Mark Taylor


Pär Sundström and Joakim Brodén of Sabaton were in London recently to talk to MetalTalk's Mark Taylor about their forthcoming eighth studio album 'The Last Stand' which is out on Nuclear Blast on August 19th.

'The Last Stand' is a concept album taking inspiration from definitive last stand battles from throughout history dating back to the Persian Empire with 'Sparta' to more modern day warfare with 'Battle For Hill 3234' about the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

This is a fascinating interview in with Pär and Joakim give a great insight into their music and the writing and research process. At just before the eleven minute mark Pär tells a great story about a war veteran who attended a Sabaton show and at eighteen-and-a-half minutes, Pär tells the story of a live gig that was filmed in Nantes and jokingly comments: "This is way too good for French people."

Here's the full interview. Scroll down for the latest Sabaton songs and tour dates.
