Moscow’s Arkona is the next addition to the ever more exciting lineup for Sabaton Open Air.

Founded in 2002 by frontwoman Masha “Scream”, this folk metal band tells tales from ancient Slavic mythology and blends traditional Russian instruments with their sound.

Singing purely in their native language, Arkona has brought awareness of their Russian heritage to the worldwide metal community in a way that few bands from their country have ever achieved.
