It’s In The Blood For Sabaton


Another new single right here 

Swedish heavy metal heroes SABATON will release their brand-new, 8th studio album, ‘The Last Stand’ on August 19th through Nuclear Blast. Today, the band have revealed the second single called ‘Blood Of Bannockburn.’

The story behind the lyrics:
1314, nine years after the execution of William Wallace, the Scottish laid siege uponStirling Castle and an agreement was made that if it had not been relieved by mid-summer the English would surrender the castle to the Scottish. The English could of course not ignore that challenge, and sent a formidable force north towardsStirling to break the siege and relieve the troops inside. In the end Robert the Bruce and the Scottish defeated the English under Edward II‘s command with a force half the size and not nearly as well equipped of what the English had at their disposal.
