Between the several battlegrounds of WWI, there was no scene as hostile as the feared alpine front that involved a series of battles at the border between Austria-Hungary and Italy. High above in the alps, men would fight in the most extreme conditions to protect the borders. Today, these fights are infamously known as the so-called “White War”, where many soldiers froze to death or were buried by dangerous avalanches. Their dead bodies remain under the snow to this day.
Today, Swedish metal war chroniclers Sabaton open the history books again to present their new single ‘Soldier Of Heaven’, giving that overlooked chapter of WWI a voice, a tune and an impressive music video featuring both breathtaking special effects and the fatal beauty of this battlefield.
Bassist Pär Sundström states about the song:
We already released the “Christmas Truce” and here comes another song which shows the diversity of the new album. In the early listening sessions of the new album this one was noted among most people as a top song and we know that this will be a powerful sing-a-long anthem on future concerts.
“Soldier Of Heaven” foreshadows the tenth masterpiece from Sabaton, The War To End All Wars, that will be released on March 4th, 2022 via Nuclear Blast Records. Once again, Sabaton will dive deep into the atrocities, miracles and happenings around WWI and take the listener to an emotional and exciting ride of 11 tracks.
