SABATON: BACK CATALOGUE TO BE RE-ISSUED BY NUCLEAR BLAST

Available for the first time in North America as non-imports, SABATON’s first four full-length albums will be re-issued by Nuclear Blast on April 14th, 2011.  Titles include: 2005’s Primo Victoria (Re-Armed), 2006’s Attero Dominatus (Re-Armed), 2007’s Metalizer (Re-Armed – 2 CDs), and 2008’s The Art Of War (Re-Armed). Exclusive bonus material and cover songs for each re-release will soon be announced.

A Swedish power metal sextet that specializes in military history, SABATON bassist Pär Sundström has this to say about the long-overdue availability of their discography in North America and the re-releases coinciding with their first-ever North American tour with German heavy metal legends ACCEPT:

“We are thrilled about finally being able to tour North America and to be able to do so with such legends as ACCEPT is even better.  Finally, our first four albums will be available outside of Europe right in time for this tour.  We will be playing songs from all five albums every night and during our full-length headlining shows, we will present the music from more than ten years of SABATON for the first time on North American soil.”
