Sabaton Unveil New Single, “Soldier of Heaven”
Sabaton have released a new song, “Soldier of Heaven,” and as usual it’s a masterclass in war history. Rather than attempt to summarize and ultimately boff it, I’ll let press copy for the new track explain the context for their latest:
“Between the several battlegrounds of World War 1, there was no scene as hostile as the feared Alpine front that involved a series of battles at the border between Austria-Hungary and Italy. High above in the Alps, men would fight in the most extreme conditions to protect the borders. Today, these battles are infamously known as the so-called “White War,” where many soldiers froze to death or were buried by dangerous avalanches. Their bodies remain under the snow until today.”
As usual, the song delivers on the musical front on top of the historical one; it bops through and through. The video is quite pretty too.
Check out the video for “Soldier of Heaven” below. A previously released single, “Christmas Truce,” will also appear on Sabaton’s next album, The War To End All Wars, due March 4.
