“We are extremely happy and proud to announce that our debut album ”The Killer Angels” have sold more than 20 000 copies in Sweden and have been awarded with a gold record. Selling 20 000 + in our home country is something none of us could ever imagine when getting into the sessions leading up to the album, even though we felt that we made a solid record, getting these numbers was still something we couldn’t predict upon our wildest imagination. The Killer Angels have received overwhelming reviews and response from all over the world, for us reading the one review after the other, getting comment from you, our fans, almost each and every one of them with all positive feedback is a bit unreal. We can’t tell you enough how much it means that you, the fans of our music, can look beside our previous adventures in bands through the years and giving this a listen for what it is, a fresh start with a new band and our own music. From all of us, to all of you, thank you and see you around!”
Some would remember, CIVIL WAR was founded by ex SABATON members. The news about the new band CIVIL WAR hit the world on May 25th 2012, ironically the same date as the release of the ex SABATON guys last performance in that band, “Carolus Rex”.
Starting off in middle of October with releasing their first Single “Rome Is Falling” got them a jump start and an overwhelming reception. The EP was released in the middle of November 2012 and it was well received by the fans from the previous band as well as new fans.
The first album “The Killer Angels” have borrowed the name from the novel by Michael Shaara about the battle of Gettysburg.
