Cover of SABATONs “The Last Stand”

SABATON will grace us today with a new Lyric Video from the new Album “The Last Stand”, the on 19. August will be released via Nuclear Blast. Was again produced by Peter Tägtgren in his Abyss Studios. On the Band's Homepage, the Lyrics of the new song “The Lost battalion are outlined as follows”:

“The Lost Battalion’ is the name given to nine companies of the United States 77th Division during the battle of the Argonne in 1918. Even though these 550-575 brave men were completely surrounded by the German Army and subjected to friendly artillery fire, they kept on fighting for a week until they were relieved. Of the over 500-plus soldiers who entered the Argonne Forest, only 194 walked out unscathed. The rest were killed, missing, captured, or wounded”.

The Tracklist confirms what the Cover suggests: that SABATON do last battles of different epochs to the content of your texts, as well as Bassist Sundström stated:
