  SABATON ANNOUNCE MAJOR SPLIT WITH FOUR MEMBERS OUT OF THE BAND
30th March 2012

The Hammer Has Fallen



Sabaton have announced a major split of the current band with guitarists Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, drummer Daniel Mulback and keyboardist Daniel Mÿhr all departing the band.

Vocalist Joakim Bróden and bassist Pär Sundström will continue as Sabaton with new, yet to be announced members. The below statement was posted on the band's official website, however the official site crashed just after the announcement was made and at the time of writing, it is still not back online.

No word of the news has yet been confirmed by the band's label Nuclear Blast. Sabaton have a new album, 'Carolus Rex, due out in May and a major headling US Tour confirmed.

The full statement on the band's website read as follows:

"Starting a band at the age of 18 is simple, keeping it intact for 12 years is much harder, and finally we have come to the crossroad where we will go separate ways.

"Pär Sundström and Joakim Brodén will continue to battle on stage, carrying the banner of Sabaton to further victories.

"We will always have an eternal bond to each other, created by more than 12 years of friendship & touring, and wish each other long and prosperous lives with families, various projects and musical careers.

"In the end, all six of us will end up in our own glorious future..."

The band has not commented on the upcoming US tour. More information is expected shortly.

And here's an exclusive MetalTalk.net video interview with Joakim Bróden. We can now exclusively reveal that the US tour will definitely go ahead and that Joakim and Pär have already rehearsed with the new line-up. Click here for the video interview.


WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
