Apocalyptica release cover of Sabaton track that’s not out yet!

Not content with dropping the standalone single “Bismarck” (which won’t be on forthcoming album The Great War) on us recently, Sabaton have come up with another novel idea. They’ve given Finnish instrumentalists Apocalyptica a sneaky listen to a new song called “Fields of Verdun” and got them to cover it. How’s that for a way of giving us a sneaky listen to a song from the album without revealing it?

Pär Sundström comments:

I watched Apocalyptica’s show in Madrid last year and I was blown away by the magic atmosphere they created. This made me excited to see what these fantastic musicians could do with a Sabaton song! And what would be more fun than to let them record their version of a song not yet released?

Sabaton’s ninth full-length record The Great War will see the light of day right in time for the band’s 20th anniversary, and is a concept album based on events during the First World War.
