Heavy Metal heroes SABATON have just reached the amazing amount of 1 million subscribers on their YouTube channel. To celebrate this, as part of their Advent Calendar, they surprise-released an animated video-clip for their hymn ‘No Bullets Fly‘, taken from their “Heroes” album.
The video tells the story of Franz Stigler and Charlie Brown, two (enemy!) pilots in the second world war. While Charlie’s plane was severely damaged and the pilot hurt, Franz decided instead of shooting him down, to risk his own life and escort him into safety. Both survived and over 50 years later they met each other again and became very close friends. A lovely story, that did not became public before 1990.
SABATON’s latest album, “The Great War”, was released in 2019 and it hit the #1 in the charts in various countries including Germany, Switzerland and Sweden. The record has been lauded by fans and critics since its debut on worldwide charts last summer, and features numerous colossal singles like ‘Great War’, ’82nd All The Way’, ’The Red Baron’ and ‘Fields of Verdun’.
