Sabaton is a Grammis-nominated power metal band from Falun, Sweden formed in 1999. The band’s main lyrical themes are those of historical wars. This is heard in albums Primo Victoria, Attero Dominatus and Coat of Arms where all of the songs, except final tracks, take inspiration from historical battles or war. Lyrical content drawn from World War I, World War II and other conflicts is prevalent and includes songs about battles and leaders on all sides of said conflicts.

On the March 30, 2012 the band announced they would go separate ways, with singer Joakim Brodén and bass player Pär Sundström continuing Sabaton, the two are looking for new members to replace those who left. On April 2, 2012 the new line up was revealed. Joining the band are Chris Rörland (Lead Guitars), Thobbe Englund (Guitars) and Robban Bäck (Drums). A new keyboard player has yet to be found. In November, Sabaton announced that Robban Bäck would take a 6 month break from touring as he has become a father.
