Professionally filmed video footage of SABATON‘s August 2 appearance at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany can be seen below. Also included is an interview with SABATON vocalist Joakim Brodén conducted by the German TV channel ZDF Kultur.

SABATON will release its new DVD and Blu-ray, “Swedish Empire Live”, on September 20 via Nuclear Blast. The disc features the band’s live performance at the renowned Polish Woodstock Festival in 2012, where over half a million fans had gathered to watch SABATON in action. Besides this main feature, the first-ever SABATON live offering also features even more live footage of the band’s performances in Gothenburg, London and Oberhausen on their extensive “Swedish Empire Tour”.

“Swedish Empire Live” will be made available in the following formats:

* 2Blu-ray digi
* 2DVD digi
* DVD (Poland only)
* CD digi
* 2LP (limited black vinyl in gatefold + poster)
* 2LP (limited yellow vinyl in gatefold + poster) (Nuclear Blast mailorder only)

* Special Leather Hardcover Earbook (Nuclear Blast mailorder only) (2Blu-ray + 2DVD + CD + exclusive bonus CD, 48-page earbook)

SABATON‘s latest album, “Carolus Rex”, was recently certified gold in Poland for sales in excess of 10,000 copies. The band was presented with gold plaques during their signing session in Warsaw. The CD was also certified gold in Sweden for sales in excess of 20,000 copies. (Note: The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry [IFPI] in Sweden has revised the sales requirements for albums to reach gold status in the country twice in the last 11 years — from the pre-2002 level of 40,000 to the current 20,000.)

“Carolus Rex” was released on May 22, 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records. The lyrics for the CD, which was made available in both English and Swedish, deal with the Swedish Empire (referring to the Kingdom of Sweden between 1561 and 1721).

SABATON last year parted ways with guitarists Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, drummer Daniel Mulback and keyboardist Daniel Mÿhr.

German TV channel ZDF Kultur spoke with SYSTEM OF A DOWN drummer John Dolmayan earlier tonight (Saturday, August 17) prior to the band’s performance at the Rock ‘N’ Heim festival in Hockenheim, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.

At the conclusion of SYSTEM OF A DOWN‘s July 29 concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California, Dolmayan announced that the band would release a new studio album prior to the group’s next appearance in Los Angeles.

The following day, SYSTEM OF A DOWN singer Serj Tankian, shot down reports that the band is making plans to make a new studio album, telling fans in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session: “We really appreciate [the fact that the fans want a new studio album from us], but we have to make a record when we think it’s time, not anyone else,” Serj said.

“No, that is not true [that we have made plans to begin work on a new album],” he added. “A quick scan of press online will show that we have not yet agreed on a timetable for another record due to its time commitments.”

Tankian also addressed the series of statements that were posted in May on SYSTEM OF A DOWN bassist Shavo Odadjian‘s Facebook page in which Shavo directly blamed Serj for the band’s continued lack of new music, saying that the vocalist was holding the group back.

Shavo‘s comments have been redacted by the author,” Serj said. “The truth is above in my first answer.”

He continued: “I am not opposed to making a SYSTEM record at all. It just has to be the right time for us all in the band.”

Tankian has just released two albums through his Serjical Strike Records. “Orca”, Tankian‘s first true symphony, arrived on June 25, while July 23 saw the release of a collaborative jazz-inspired disc called “Jazz-iz Christ”.

SYSTEM OF A DOWN will tour Europe throughout the month of August. After that, Tankian will launch a series of solo orchestral tour dates on September 19 in Kiev, Ukraine.
