SABATON Pays Tribute to Metallica, Battle Beast and Raubtier

SABATON
SABATON

For their upcoming new record Heroes, Swedish Heavy Metal institution SABATON now reveals the different track lists, including all the bonus tracks that will be available. Among them are three cover versions of METALLICA,BATTLE BEAST and RAUBTIER.

Heroes will be released on May 27, 2014 via Nuclear Blast.

 

The band comments the decisions like this:

 

METALLICA – ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’

“All of us are old fans of METALLICA. The choice of the song was difficult, but we all could agree on that one. As an addition, ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ was the first heavy metal song ever performed on a stage by Pär.”

 

BATTLE BEAST – ‘Out Of Control‘

“BATTLE BEAST was our secret guest at our latest Sabatoncruise and we all enjoyed watching them perform their songs live. We thought we wanted to support young and upcoming bands and decided to do a cover of them.”

 

RAUBTIER – ‘En Hjältes Väg ‘

“RAUBTIER are our brothers from the north of Sweden. We have played together countless times and in the past, and Thobbe used to be in this band. At a special concert in 2012 Joakim performed this song live together with RAUBTIER and it awoke the idea of doing a cover-version. Seeing to the song title it was also a natural choice for our latest album »Heroes«.
