The Age Of Metal conducted an interview with vocalist Joakim Brodén of Swedish metallers SABATON on May 1 in Tempe, Arizona during the band's North American tour with ICED EARTH and REVAMP. You can now watch the chat below.
"Heroes", the new album from SABATON, will be released on May 16 via Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork for the effort was created by Péter Sallai. A number of bonus tracks will be made available, including cover versions of songs originally written and recorded by METALLICA, BATTLE BEAST and RAUBTIER.
"We had the title in mind since before we even recorded 'Carolus Rex' and we already had ideas for artwork years ago," said SABATON bassist Pär Sundström. "We had a few different ones to choose from, but when we saw this one, we knew it was the right one for this album."
"Heroes" was tracked at The Abyss, the recording studio in Pärlby outside Ludvika, Sweden owned and operated by record producer and musician Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN).
SABATON played its first show with new drummer Hannes Van Dahl on November 16, 2013 at the Metal Hammer Paradise festival in Germany.
