Are they coming to Poland ? Tell me why I should see them.
Well, first, Sabaton is for most any fan of the 'cleaner' varieties of Metal (as opposed to Black Metal, Death Metal, ect.), and probably even so for those able to listen to a variety of music with an open mind. I, for example, do not personally listen to very much Metal, and yet do wish to see this show.
The theme they're running it on - 'Always Remember', appears to be a reference to their disproportionally-well-known-in-these-parts song "40:1", on the 1939 Battle of Wizna in Poland, where Cpt. Raginis and his 720 men held off 42,000 invading Germans for three days before finally being overrun, at which point Raginis took his own life with a grenade, presuably to take some more Germans with him (Always remember/A fallen soldier/Always Remember/Fathers and sons at war).
As implied by the album name, Art of War, the songs all have inspiration/basis in some historic battle(/field event), which I think is something of no small significance (because we've all heard plenty of songs about bad relationships and the like already!).
As to them playing in Poland: yes, they are, beginning with the 31st of this month and ending with the 6th of next. From the Sabaton official website sabaton.net
