SABATON Announce New Song Release And New 2020 Tour Dates For Russia & Belarus

The new live version of ‘The Attack Of The Dead Men’ featuring RADIO TAPOK is out now!
We are proud to present another musical collaboration with RADIO TAPOK for a Live version of our song “The Attack Of The Dead Men”! The song was recorded during our recent concert in Moscow and it is now available on all streaming and digital music platforms.
RADIO TAPOK is a Russian artist who gained popularity by covering a plethora of famous rock and metal songs in Russian. He has a huge following in Russian speaking countries with millions of fans and subscribers across a range of social networks.

RADIO TAPOK has previously covered our song The Attack of the Dead Men with the lyrics translated to Russian. It was even released a few days before our version was available.

During our recent concerts in Moscow and Saint Petersburg, RADIO TAPOK made an unannounced surprise appearance on stage and performed the song with us. The unique live performance was recorded in Moscow and has been mixed by Jonas Kjellgren who is also the person behind the mixing and recording of The Great War.
As Pär stated:
“It’s a special honour for us to collaborate with RADIO TAPOK. He is a very talented artist and his cover of our song The Attack Of The Dead Men was so well received, that we did not think twice when we decided to invite him on stage to perform the song with us in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. The performance was so good that we had no other option than to release this collaboration!”
The song tells 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.

The song is now available on all streaming and digital music platforms.

There will also be an exclusive 12” Vinyl which will be released on July 10th via Nuclear Blast and you can be preorder it now in the following formats:
