Amaranthe – 82nd All The Way
Heavy metal band Amaranthe never graced the Eurovision stage, we know! But their female lead singer, Elize Ryd, sure tried back in 2015 when she took part in Melodifestivalen. Her band have now released “82nd All The Way”.
The song is a cover of Sabaton’s single from last year. It’s their way to honour Sergeant Alvin York, an American officer from Tennessee during World War I. Together with just seven soldiers, he was in charge of capturing the hills around Decauville, in northern France. His actions, which earned him a Medal of Honor in the USA, made sure all 132 surviving German soldiers on the hill surrendered to just seven Americans.
A story worth telling and a song worth listening to!
