Sabaton recently released a short video which showed detailed shots of Peter Sallai’s artwork for the album’s cover.
Alongside the album, the Swedes have worked hard to make their 20th year anniversary an exciting year, and also started the Sabaton History Channel – a unique collaboration between the band themselves and multimedia historians Indy Neidell and Timeghost – capturing the power of social media to tell stories about the wars, battles and heroes behind Sabaton’s songs.
“This is the biggest album we have taken on so far.There is more depth and story around the songs that we have ever had before”, Pär Sundström tells us. “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.”
