RADIO TAPOK is a Russian artist who has become famous for his Russian covers of famous rock and metal songs. It has a huge following in Russian-speaking countries with millions of fans on various social networks.
RADIO TAPOK had previously published his version of ‘The Attack Of The Dead Men’ with the text translated into Russian. In collaboration with SABATON, its cover was released a few days before the band’s official song was available.
During the recent SABATON concerts in Moscow and St. Petersburg, RADIO TAPOK appeared unexpectedly on stage, playing the song with the band. This unique performance was recorded in Moscow and mixed by Jonas Kjellgren, who had already dealt with the mix of “The Great War”.
SABATON bassist Pär Sundström comments: “It is a special honor for us to collaborate with RADIO TAPOK. He is a very talented artist and his cover of ‘The Attack Of The Dead Men’ was received so well that we didn’t think twice before inviting him on stage in Moscow and St. Petersburg. The performance was so good that we could not help but publish this collaboration! “.
The song tells the story of the fortress of Osowiec and of a battle during the First World War in which the forces of imperial Germany used chlorine gas against the Russian defenders who had no protection against the gas and had to wrap wet clothes around the face , in desperation. They were not expected to survive and therefore their counterattack was so surprising and successful. Wrapped in a bloody cloth and coughing blood, the legend of the attack of the dead men was born and born.
