Swedish metal chronicler SABATON is on a mission to send chills up listeners’ spines. Today, the Swedish band unleashes “The Symphony To End All Wars,” a virtuosic, symphonic take on “The War To End All Wars,” that was released on March 4, 2022 (Nuclear Blast Records).
The band states: “These stories about courageous heroes and extraordinary incidents during The Great War are not only worthy of a whole album and an accompanying history edition, but an additional symphonic soundtrack edition that summons new emotions and adds a new dimension to our compositions. This is an entirely different take on ‘The War To End All Wars’.”
“The Symphony To End All Wars” is available in two vinyl formats: Black Single LP in Gatefold and Winter Wind Single LP in Gatefold (limited to 1500 units) and can be streamed on all digital music formats.
