Biography

Falun, Sweden (1999 – present)

Sabaton is a heavy metal band from Falun, Sweden formed in 1999. The band’s main lyrical themes are based on war and historical battles. Lyrical content drawn from World War I, World War II and other conflicts is prevalent and includes songs about battles and leaders on all sides of said conflicts. In April 2012, four members left the band and formed another, whilst vocalist Joakim Brodén and bassist Pär Sundström continued with new members.

Sabaton was formed in 1999. After the first songs were recorded in Peter Tägtgren’s studio, The Abyss, Sabaton was contacted by a couple of record labels. The band decided to sign up for Italian label Underground Symphony, under which internationally released the promo CD Fist for Fight —actually a compilation consisting of material from two demotapes recorded between 1999 and 2000— with the intention to promote forthcoming releases.

In 2002, a new album was recorded. Metalizer was supposed to be distributed by Underground Symphony as the band’s debut album, but after two years of waiting, during which the band held various performances across Sweden, the album was abandoned.

The band returned for a second album titled Primo Victoria and found themselves in negotiations with several international record labels. They eventually signed with Black Lodge, the metal division of Sound Pollution. In early 2005, they recruited Daniel Myhr to relieve Joakim Brodén, who played keyboards in addition to singing, of his keyboard duties.

    In my opinion one of the best bands of the last decade. The stream of excellent songs and creativity that flows from them with each album really makes them deserve all the popularity they've attained.

    Emotions doesn't make anything sound good? Emotions are the MOST IMPORTANT. Songs without emotions are empty.

    Pablo-MP3 Joakim has good voice which i really like but it just doesnt suit. And it mainly makes this song horrible. And the atmosphere is TOO pompatic. Emotions doesnt make anything sound good. But as always, a matter of taste too...

    I don't understand people, who dislike The Ballad of Bull - it's one of their best tracks, definitely! Great, slow ballad saturated with emotions.
