Metal Supergroup Civil War Commemorate Gettysburg Anniversary
Civil War features ex-Sabaton members, Rikard Sundén, Oskar Montelius, Daniel Mullback and Daniel Myhr, along with frontman, Nils Patrik Johansson (Astral Doors), and bass player, Stefan "Pizza" Eriksson (Volturyon).
"The Battle of Gettysburg. 150 years have passed since it took place, but still today it's one of the greatest battles in history," says band. "This is a song that reflects the memories and thoughts of one single soldier.
"His name is unknown, maybe he never existed. But if he did, maybe this is what went through his mind. We give you the song, 'Gettysburg.'"
The song comes from the group's debut album, "The Killer Angels" which was named after the novel by Michael Shaara about the Battle of Gettysburg.
The album was recorded by Jonas Kjellgren at Studio Myhrer (which is actually the bed and living room of keyboard player, Myhr), Black Lounge Studio and Peter Tägtgren's, The Abyss, in Pärlby, Sweden. Listen to the song here.
