Swedish heavy / power metal legends Sabaton have released a single and video for one of their most requested song topics ever. The story is about the ship Bismarck, that the band had wanted to write about for a long time, though could not fit into any album. So the band decided to make it a special single release, as a gift to the fans.
The folks at Wargaming and World of Warships teamed up with the band for a truly impressive video. The team at Wargaming could ensure the historical accuracy of the scenes thanks to the models from their award winning game World of Warships, and the director Matthias Hoene, who won a Golden Lion at Cannes, were able to bring the band and story together.
The song was written over a year ago in Black Lounge studios with Jonas Kjellgren, who also did the mixing and the recording for the bands upcoming studio album, The Great War.
Bismarck was a German Battleship and one of the biggest ever built in Europe.
Commissioned in August 1940 and sunk in May 1941 after an intense hunt in the North Atlantic. Though he now rests beneath the waves, players of World of Warships can still take this iconic ship into virtual battles.
For now the song is available at Youtube so you can enjoy this great video for free.
At a later stage it will also be available on your favourite digital platform.
