Three years ago there was a riot at the Sabaton headquarters. It resulted in the departure of four members who decided to start anew. Three of them are still active in Civil War, keyboard player Daniel Myhr is one of them. With a life full of adventure we were left with a lot of questions. Why is it just out while the record was finished last July? How is the relationship with the other Sabaton guys? And do they ever get tired talking about Sabaton this much? He gladly picked up the phone to have a little chat about the new record ‘Gods And Generals.
Let me start with saying the following: Civil War is a band conducted from old members of the Swedish metal band Sabaton. We all know that Sabaton is loved by many people and most of those fans will probably want to be introduced to Civil War. That is a grave misunderstanding! Yes, the music Civil War produces is very like Sabaton, but if you look at it that way it will not score well. ‘Gods And Generals’ is just the second album by Civil War, nothing more.
