Judas Priest are an English heavy metal band formed in Birmingham in 1969. They have sold over 50 million copies of their albums, and are frequently ranked as one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Despite an innovative and pioneering body of work in the latter half of the 1970s, the band had struggled with indifferent record production and a lack of major commercial success until 1980, when they rose to commercial success with the album British Steel.
Sabaton is a Swedish heavy metal band from Falun, Sweden. Most of their songs are written about heroism in war. Their latest album, The Great War, hit number 1 among music charts in Sweden and Germany. The band’s name is a reference to a sabaton, knight’s foot armor. The armor and battle theme is heard in most songs in almost every album except Metalizer. Their latest album, The Great War, was released on 19 July 2019, with the songs all being based on World War I. Lyrical content drawn from World War I, World War II and other historical conflicts is prevalent and lyrics often recite stories of heroic deeds by men, women, and armies, such as the song “White Death”, for example, which was made in honor of legendary Finnish sniper Simo Häyhä.
