Swedish heavy metal band Sabaton share another track from their latest album, “The Great War”, with a new video clip of ‘The Attack Of The Dead Men’ via Nuclear Blast records.
“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 f***ing virus that has paralyzed 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”, comments Pär Sundström.
Brooding and sinister these guys are masters of the heavy metal craft. Incorporating the story of Osowiec Fortress and a battle during World War 1 where the forces of imperial Germany used chlorine gas against the Russian defenders who had no protection against gas and had to wrap wet clothes around their faces in desperation.
They were not expected to survive and that is why their counter attack was so surprising and successful. Wrapped in bloody cloth and coughing blood, they charged and the legend of the attack of the dead men was born.
Everything needed for a good head-banging and devil horn raising is here. The vocal performance is the chorus sounds like a charge from hell on its own. Throw in an epic guitar solo and you have one hell of a crowd pleasing track that goes likes a freight train.
