Pär Sundström states: ”We felt directly when we had recorded the album that the song ’82nd All the Way’ was one of the absolutely strongest songs. It’s why we selected this song to be representing the album release. It’s fun to play, fun to listen to and for sure it will be a part of the setlist for upcoming shows for a very long time.”

The release of SABATON’s ninth full-length record perfectly coincides with the band’s 20th anniversary and the concept album is based on events during the First World War. The band started the recordings exactly 100 years after the end of the First World War (11/11/1918) and took 3 months of intensive work to complete the album together with their long term producer and partner Jonas Kjellgren at Black Lounge studios. Furthermore, the album has been mastered by Maor Appelbaum and the artwork was once again created by Peter Sallaí“This is not the first time we have sung about stories from this period in time, but now we felt the timing was right to make a full concept album about this war”, explain the band.
