Sabaton Release Music Video For Their Motörhead Cover

Swedish power metal band Sabaton has released a music video for their cover of Motörhead’s well-known track 1916. The song is featured on the band’s latest EP, Stories From The Western Front, which is part of their EP trilogy Echoes Of The Great War. The EP was also released yesterday

The music video for 1916 was filmed in Birmingham and at the famous Black Country Living Museum. In the video, an abundance of historical characters from the Sabaton lore can be seen.

The video also features a headbanging metal army from Birmingham, complete with battle gear and weapons, marching through the streets. The Sabaton army is joined by a group of extras dressed as soldiers from various eras, including World War I and II, as well as medieval knights and Roman legionnaires.

In addition to the historical characters, the music video also includes a cameo from the living members of Motörhead, Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell.

The video is a fitting tribute to both Sabaton’s and Motörhead’s love of all things military and historical. Sabaton has always been known for their fascination with military history, with many of their songs focusing on battles, heroes, and victories throughout the ages. Motörhead, on the other hand, is often associated with their heavy, fast-paced music and their love of all things rock and roll.

Sabaton’s cover of 1916 is a powerful rendition of the original, featuring the band’s signature sound and energy. The song itself is a tribute to the soldiers who fought and died in World War I, with lyrics that pay homage to the bravery and sacrifice of those who served.

Overall, the music video for Sabaton’s cover of 1916 is an impressive and exciting tribute to both the band’s and Motörhead’s love of history and heavy metal. With its impressive visuals, high-energy performances, and powerful message, it is sure to be a hit with fans of both bands and anyone who appreciates great music and a bit of historical flair.
