Svenska Sabaton vann Metal Hammer’s Breakthrough Artist

Den engelska hårdrocktidningen Metal Hammer utsåg vid sin stora årliga prisgala Metal Hammer's Golden Gods Awards på O2-arenan i London den här veckan svenska Sabaton från Falun till årets Breakthrough Artist.

På sin hemsida tackar bandet alla fans som röstat på bandet.

"We want to aim a big thanks to all the people who voted for Sabaton in the Golden Gods Awards. We returned from London with the price for "Breakthrough"
People always said that our music is nothing for UK, but the sold out tour in last October was a proof of the opposite.
We wanted to give something back to the UK fans and so we decided to add a unique one-off show in London. This will be a longer setlist then usual and will be the last show in UK on the "World War Tour". The show will be in Koko in London on the 16:th of December."

Fjolårets album Coat Of Arms [Black Lodge / Sound Pollution] var bandets femte fullängdare sedan debuten 2005.
