See what press is saying about SABATON’s The Last Stand:

“Most diverse SABATON war ever!ˮ

SPARK (CZ), David Havlena

“Everything SABATON stand for, compressed on 37 exciting minutes! The Last Stand goes straight forward without off-time, delivers hit after hit in the famous SABATON style, but still provides enough space for new sounds and surprises.ˮ

METAL HAMMER (D), Sebastian Kessler

“Best SABATON record so far. The Last Stand has a better sound, bombastic vocals and a future crowd favorite called ‘The Lost Battalion’.”

– AARDSCHOK (NL), Michael van Rijswijk


Formed in Falun, Sweden in 1999, SABATON is best known for singing almost exclusively about historical wars and battles, a direction the band members decided to take on after watching the 1999 Academy Award-winning film Saving Private Ryan. The band thoroughly researches their topics to ensure the songs paint accurate and 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 of Sweden, SABATON aims to remain politically neutral in their role as musical war historians. SABATON have reached their unshaken position as heavy metal’s AAA-torchbearer after releasing ingenious studio recordings and playing endless amount of unforgettable live shows. The Last Stand is another unquestionable and bulletproof evidence of SABATON‘s top class abilities and it will be followed by the band’s most gigantic world tour to date.
