3-Track Demo is Sabaton's demo from 2004.
The band produced this demo and sent 15 copies to various record labels in search of a record deal for their debut album Primo Victoria.
Pär: "I remember when we had recorded this one (Panzer Battalion) and I made the graphical layout for the demo bearing the songtitle. The 3-Track Demo with Panzer Battalion, Primo Victoria (which we called Overlord at this time) and finally Nightchild, we sent out to about 15 record labels. I got one copy in return since one of the companies did not exist anymore. I remember people told us to send hundreds of demos away, but we only focused on the few labels we really wanted.
We got one reply from a record label with this demo.
"- Hi, I am calling from a big record label, sign my piece of paper and you will be rockstars."
I thought "yeah, right", and signed nothing... And look what happened.
If I did not had received the undelievered one in rreturn, this demo would have been lost forever. A bit ironic is that it probably lies one of these 15 copies somewhere stashed away in Nuclear Blast archives. Some years later, they actually release the demo they once declined..."
