Come out and experience first-hand why SABATON are one of the most popular up-and-coming bands in heavy metal.

Formed in Falun, Sweden in 1999, the band is best known for singing almost exclusively about historical wars & battles, a direction SABATON members decided to take on after watching the 1999 Academy Award-winning film Saving Private Ryan. “For us it means a lot more to write about historical events than to make up stories,” says bassist Pär Sundström, one of the main songwriters. The band thoroughly researches their topics to ensure the songs paint accurate & objective portraits of the historical event they’re singing about, which are narrated from an omniscient point-of-view or in first-person as a soldier caught in the line of fire. Like their home country, SABATON aims to remain politically neutral in their role as musical war historians.
