Sabaton is a band from Falun, Sweden formed in 1999. The band's main lyrical themes are based on war
and historical battles.
In April 2012, guitarists Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, drummer Daniel Mullback and
keyboardist Daniel Mÿhr left the band to form Civil War.

A sabaton or solleret is part of a knight's armour that covers the foot.
Joakim Brodén said: "We felt it was simply a name that did not had a special meaning but still made people curious.
Some people think we are a Black Sabbath coverband, but that´s of course not true."
