Exclusive 7" vinyl release from Metal Department, pressed on translucent blue vinyl with slight black streaks.

'Bismarck' was originally released on May 17th 2019, solely in digital format.
In 2021 it was released as a 12" vinyl and now it will finally be available as a 7" single, featuring an exclusive bonustrack as well.
The song was written and recorded in 2018 at the Black Lounge studios with Jonas Kjellgren.
Bismarck was a German Battleship and one of the biggest ever built in Europe. Commissioned in August 1940 and sunk in May 1941 after an intense hunt in the North Atlantic.
As the band themselves put it at the time of release in 2019:
"The fate of the ship Bismarck is a fascinating story we wanted to write about for a long time, but could not fit into any album. So we decided to make it as a single release as a gift to our fantastic fans for our 20th anniversary. 'Bismarck' is also the most requested topic for a Sabaton song ever!"
