The new masterpiece of the Swedish Heavy Metal legion SABATON „Carolus Rex” is out now!
“Carolus Rex” is the seventh SABATON studio album and boasts plenty of future metal anthems plus a sophisticated lyrical concept about the Swedish king Carl XII.
„We can now confirm that our new album will be available in both English and Swedish language. The topics of the songs will remain quite the same and deals with the Swedish Empire, from it’s rise to it’s fall.
“Carolus Rex” will be available for purchase on single Swedish CD (Sweden only) and single English CD plus a limited edition which features a double CD with both language versions. The double CD will also feature a different cover artwork“
The album was produced by Peter Tägtgren, who is also guest vocalist on one track.
