The Swedes have released their new video for the song “Seven Pilars Of Wisdom”, shot in the Sahara desert! Production was very difficult as equipment, vehicles, power generators etc were tested under hot sun, sandstorms, while the band was involved in a car accident. The story is based on English archaeologist, diplomat and officer T.E. Lawrence, also known as “Lawrence of Arabia”, who was immortalized in the legendary film starring Omar Sharif, which won 7 Oscars in 1963. The song is included in the recent album “The Great War”, inspired by World War I, which was released last July by Nuclear Blast. Said Sabaton bassist Pär Sundström: “Finally we can share this great music video with you and show you that our trip to the Sahara not only led to the car accident you have read about but actually to a great adventure and an even greater video. We initially investigated ways to film this video in other locations, even in studios with greenscreen but in the end we decided to go to a suitable location. I am very impressed with the band, the cast and the crew who all put in a lot of effort to make this happen.”
