Sabaton share live video for The Attack Of The Dead Men

Sabaton have released a live video to showcase their track The Attack Of The Dead Men.

The song features on the Swedish outfit’s latest studio album The Great War which launched in the summer of 2019.

The whole album focuses on World War One, with The Attack Of The Dead Men named after the 1915 battle at Osowiec Fortress in Poland, when Russian soldiers were bombarded with chlorine gas by German forces.

Sabaton bassist Pär Sundström says: “The video features Sabaton wearing gas masks while performing The Attack Of The Dead Men during our latest European tour. 

“Little could we imagine that today a huge amount of the world’s population would wear masks daily thanks to this fucking virus that has paralysed our beloved metal community. 

“We miss doing this, we miss you... no livestream can ever replace the feeling of being in the audience for a metal concert.”

Sabaton will return to the road in early 2021 for a number of shows across their homeland of Sweden.
