Sabaton is back with a cover of the Radio Tapok song "Defence Of Moscow", which aims to tell the story of the Soviet Union forces in WWII. The single is well-timed, given Russian Victory Day is on May 9.
"May 9 is celebrated as V-Day in Russia, the day to commemorate the victory over the Nazis in WW2. This year we participate in the memory of this event by releasing a song dedicated to the brave men who fought in the battle of Moscow," said bassist Pär Sundström.
"This track was originally written in Russian by our friend Radio Tapok. It's a very strong song and we thought it made sense that Sabaton should give it a try to make a honorable cover of this song.
"We love to surprise everyone, and this is a great surprise."
A 7" version of the cover is available here between May 7 and 9.
