Swedish heavy metal heroes SABATON have unveiled the second single from their upcoming record!
Titled Blood Of Bannockburn, the track’s story is set in 1314, nine years after the execution of William Wallace. The Scottish laid siege upon Stirling Castle and an agreement was made that if it had not been relieved by mid-summer the English would surrender the castle to the Scottish. The English could of course not ignore that challenge, and sent a formidable force north towards Stirling to break the siege and relieve the troops inside. In the end Robert the Bruce and the Scottish defeated the English under Edward II‘s command with a force half the size and not nearly as well equipped of what the English had at their disposal.
This new single is the second to be released from SABATON‘s upcoming record The Last Stand, following the release of The Lost Battalion several weeks earlier. You can listen to Blood Of Bannockburn below:
