The Skinny: Civil War, the new symphonic power metal band from ex-Sabaton members, Rikard Sundén, Oskar Montelius, Daniel Mullback and Daniel Myhr, along with frontman, Nils Patrik Johansson (Astral Doors), and bass player, Stefan “Pizza” Eriksson (Volturyon), has posted the new song, “First to Fight,” for streaming on YouTube – hit play and listen just below!

The track originally surfaced last week and comes from the band’s debut full-length, The Killer Angels, out June 11 on Despotz Records. According to the band, “First to Fight” is about an elite force that, according to some, even surpasses the U.S. Navy SEALs when it comes to tough recruitment requirements. “GROM,” Grupa Reagowania Operacyjno-Manewrowego (Operational Maneuver Response Group), is a 350-man strong elite force that was formed on June 13, 1990 to protect Polish citizens from global threats.
