SABATON – “Carolus Rex” details ... - 2012-03-08

2012-03-08 - Swedish epic power metallers SABATON have just unveiled exciting details on their upcoming new studio record “Carolus Rex” – that will actually be a two-in-one-album - through the following update:

“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 release is set for Europe and in North America the last week of May, but already now you can pre-order the album (click here: http://bit.ly/yNfscr ) .
It’s produced by Peter Tägtgren who is also doing guest vocals on one song. During the recording of “Carolus Rex” we also recorded a song where Joakim sings in German, a cover of “Feuer Frei” by RAMMSTEIN.
We are currently booking a huge tour and will present more countries in the upcoming days!”
