Distinguished with gold and platinum awards!

SABATON - distinguished with gold and platinum awards!

Sabaton are currently touring the world in support of our latest studio record “The Last Stand” and also holding #1 (“The Last Stand“), #7 (“Carolus Rex”; on the top for 248(!) weeks in a row now), #9 (“Heroes“), and #17 (“The Art Of War”) in the Swedish Top 20 rock charts.

After hitting the charts worldwide with “The Last Stand” last year (#6 World; #1 in Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and Germany among others), we were recently honoured with new plaques for our impressive album sales: “The Last Stand” achieved Gold in our homeland Sweden, and in Poland. The previous studio album, “Heroes“, even got platinum-certified in Sweden!

On March 4th, Sabaton had already been honoured with golden plaques for “The Last Stand“‘s sales in the Czech Republic at Tipsport Arena, Prague.

This is a proof of two things, first that we are still able to make music that fans wanna listen to and second that we have fantastic fans who really care. Sure, the current tour is called “The Last Tour”, but as long as it is going like this we’ll be going strong for a long time.”

What could be better than to bring two great European bands on our upcoming North American 2017 tour? Leave’s Eye’s and Battle Beast is a perfect match for Sabaton fans, and we have done several shows with them in the past proving how great package this will be.

Both bands have also performed on our festival Sabaton Open Air in the past and Battle Beast toured with us on the Heroes tour in Europe so it will be one big family touring North America in April & May.

Freedom Call to Sabaton Open Air 2017!

Freedom Call

Freedom Call really don’t need much presentation. If you are a fan of Power Metal, you already heard them and probably liked them for years back!

Freedom Call was formed in 1998 by front man Chris Bay and his old friend Daniel Zimmermann (ex Gamma Ray) and their debut album “Stairway to Fairyland” was released in May 1999.
Their 9:th studio album “Master Of Lights” was released november 11 2016 and it’s another master piece by the band!

Freedom Call was supposed to play the 2010 issue of Sabaton Cruise, but got caught by the blizzards in Germany and had to cancel their show. Instead we re-booked them for the 2011 festival in Falun and since then they have not been back.. Until now for the 10:th anniversary in 2017!

As we said then:

– We can’t tell you how much we are looking forward to this awesome show!

Steve Harris British Lion to Sabaton Open Air 2017!

Steve Harris British Lion

Steve Harris British Lion, the side project of Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris who released their eponymous debut album in 2012. Featuring Steve alongside vocalist Richard Taylor, David Hawkins (guitar and keys) , Grahame Leslie (guitar) and Simon Dawson (drums), BRITISH LION has been touring annually ever since, amassing an ever-growing fan-base.

Today BRITISH LION find themselves on their most extensive tour yet around Europe, delighting fans with their distinctive style of music influenced by the late 70´s and bands like UFO and Thin Lizzy. Bands who once inspired Steve Harris himself. Although this material is presented in a modern version, more mainstream rock than metal. If BRITISH LION is new to you – check them out here:

And if you haven´t yet experienced them live – take your chance at Sabaton Open Air 2017!

Pain to Sabaton Open Air 2017!

Pain

“Music is everything to me. I’ve been through two divorces and a whole world of shit because of music but still it is the most important thing in the world to me. I’d rather have music than anything else.”

So speaks Peter Tägtgren, musician, producer and creative brain behind PAIN, Sweden’s finest industrial metal export. His has been a life immersed in music, in pushing boundaries, and taking ideas to both their logical and illogical extremes. It’s been a career that has involved fronting bands – notably iconic death metal veterans HYPOCRISY, and now PAIN – or shaping their sounds – as he has done with SABATON, CELTIC FROST, CHILDREN OF BODOM, DIMMU BORGIR and IMMORTAL amongst others.

After the substantial success of Peter’s LINDEMANN project with RAMMSTEIN vocalist Till Lindemann, he retreated and took time to write another industrial metal statement entitled “Coming Home” (Released in September 2016)

Last time we had PAIN on stage in Falun was back in 2011 and Peter had as his mission to pull off such a show that would make Sabaton’s special effects look pale and cheap. Did he succeed? And will he make another try now in August 2017? Be there and find out…
