Saying that Sabaton have always been a crowd favourite is undoubtedly an understatement. In 2010 they not only blew our socks off; their signing session later that day generated one of the longest queues ever at GMM. Sabaton’s first live release ‘World War Live: Battle of the Baltic Sea’ captures the essence of the band’s live prowess. Sabaton have the live thing down to a T and with his easy and humorous stage banter, frontman Joakim Brodén knows how to work a crowd. The Swedish panzer battalion’s previous stop in Dessel highlighted the tracks off ‘The Great War’ (2019), a concept album that tells the story of The Great War, also known as the First World War. Brodén and bassist Sundström are the only surviving founding members but the new Sabaton line-up has long since matured into a well-oiled machine and they are ready for yet another Primo Victoria. With a bit of luck they may even throw in a few tracks off the upcoming new album so close ranks and march on proudly because Sabaton are back! (#GMM22)
