Swedish epic power metallers SABATON will release their first-ever live album, “World War Live: Battle Of The Baltic Sea” on August 5 via Nuclear Blast Records.
The following updates comes from Sabaton.net.
“Over the years so many people have told us we should make a live-album and finally we fell to the demands of all of you, our fans.
The World War Tour was amazing and we wanted to record it and keep the shows alive forever. So, during the magic night aboard the SABATON Cruise 2010 we recorded the whole show and now we stand ready to release it as the first ever official SABATON live-CD.
And as if it was not enough we also recorded many shows all around Europe and put together a whole CD with mixed songs from various cities.
And finally we decided to release the DVD-recording we did at the first Rockstad: Falun festival 2008 from Falun as a bonus for you who buy the limited edition.
In total it will be over 20 different songs and we have also collected a lot of pictures from the tour and put them in a massive booklet.
We will reveal all details very soon.”
‘The World War Tour” artwork is again designed by Brazilian JOBERT MELLO – SLEDGEHAMMER GRAPHIX (PRIMAL FEAR, PAUL RODGERS, MASAKI MURASHITA, MIDNATTSOL, LEAVES’ EYES, and others), who’s been working with the band since “The Art OF War”, released on 2008 via SOUND POLLUTION/BLACK LODGE and “Coat Of Arms” which was released in Europe on May 21, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
