SABATON Shares APOCALYPTICA’s Cover of Their New Track “Fields of Verdun”

Swedish heavy metal heroes SABATON are pleased to share ‘Fields of Verdun’, the first song from their upcoming album “The Great War”, as performed by their friends in Finnish cello rock band APOCALYPTICA.
Enjoy it below.

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?”
