Ruotsalainen metallijätti Sabaton julkaisi ruotsinkielisen kappaleen ja videon ”Livgardet”.
”Since 2012 and Carolus Rex we have been looking forward to writing more songs in Swedish and we felt that we were not done with the history of our fatherland”, basisti Pär Sundström kertoo. ”Over the past years, we have been discussing topics until something obvious came up. One of the oldest military regiments in the world, the Swedish Royal Guard (Livgardet), was formed in SABATON’s home region in Sweden, Dalecarlia, in 1521 by the legendary Swedish king Gustav Vasa.
For the past 500 years they have evolved with the times and served under various kings and queens around the world, and they are still active today. We felt that such an anniversary would be worth a song and we aimed at writing a respectful tribute, an anthem for this Swedish regiment and its legacy.
The rich 500 years of history is, needless to say, extremely hard to fit into one single song and that is why we mainly focused on the parts and battles that happened during the age of the Swedish Empire. We aimed to write a respectful tribute, a powerful anthem, for this Swedish regiment and its remarkable legacy.”

Moonspell julkaisi videon uudelta albumiltaan ”Hermitage”. Kappale ”The Hermit Saints” kuunneltavissa alla:
Yhtye kertoo uudesta musiikkivideosta:
“The Hermit Saints unveils even further secrets about our forthcoming album: Hermitage, make no mistake: this is a METAL song played according to Moonspell’s own signature and rules.
This song tells you about the holiness and unholiness of men, about the duality between saints and sinners. It tells of the fever that makes us cross into the desert of our own existences, perpetually looking out for the cure, that will never come until we change our ways.
Many might go. Few will come back. Lock the gates, behold The Hermit Saints!”
