Sabaton Bassist Pär Sundström on The MetalSucks Podcast #297
Sabaton bassist Pär Sundström is our guest this week. We discuss the band’s new album The Great War and the World War I anniversary that inspired it, the concept of war history and heavy metal working so well together, the draw metalheads feel towards towards such topics, the band’s recent tour across Europe with a full choir, filling in last minute when Manowar canceled at Hellfest, having to cut all pyrotechnics when playing shows in the States, and how art forms of all kinds have changed over time.
Petar and Brandon unleash another music episode thanks to a fan submitted email, taking on the challenge of naming our top ten albums from bands that we think ended too quickly. Make sure to comment or send in your picks after you check out ours.
Songs: Sabaton – “The Red Baron” and “Fields of Verdun”
