Sept. 19 — Veteran power metal band Sabaton will release a new movie based on its latest album, The War to End All Wars next month.
The band, which released the album (its 10th) March 4 through Nuclear Blast Records, will release the new companion movie, which bears the album’s name, next year. The band is working with Yarnhub Animation to create the movie. It will be just the latest video presentation that the band will have presented in partner with Yarnhub Animation. The band also worked with the company to create videos for its singles, ‘Night Witches,’ ‘No Bullets Fly,’ ‘Christmas Truce‘ and ‘Red Baron.’
David Webb, Yarnhub Animation CEO/Founder, said making the movie was a lot of hard work and that it was worth it.
“When Sabaton asked us to go beyond anything we had produced before and jointly create a film for their new album, we were filled with excitement and trepidation,” Webb said. “It was a massive undertaking that required new people, technology, and skills. But we couldn’t miss the opportunity.
“We often say our mission is to harvest goosebumps, and our work with Sabaton has always been the most successful in that regard. It’s been two years in the making, but after spending many late nights and weekends in meetings with the band, the end result is something unique. A new way to listen to the album; a deeper understanding that helps the viewer experience the bravery and tragedy that was the inspiration for Sabaton’s latest masterwork.”
The War to End All Wars: The Movie is currently in post production. An official release date is under consideration.
Par Sundstrom, Sabaton bassist and founding member, said he was was pleased at early reaction that the movie has received.
“We premiered an early version of this movie to journalists during a preview session for our latest album, ‘The War To End All Wars,’ at the Royal Military Museum in Brussels,” Sundstrom said. “Witnessing their reaction to it was priceless – they were speechless – so we decided to take it to the next level and push the boundaries even further for a global audience.”
In anticipation of the movie’s release next year, the band has released a brief trailer that is streaming here.
Sabaton followed up the release of The War to End All Wars with the release of an orchestral companion record in May titled, The Symphony To End All Wars.
