The band comments: "For the first time ever we have had an expert to help us out with the theme, the well-known Swedish historian Bengt Liljegren. We have also added some extra time in the studio to find the absolute sound right on 'Carolus Rex' and our producer, Peter Tägtgren, says that this album will mark a brand new standard for how a Heavy Metal album should sound like!"
At Liljegrens works include acclaimed biographies of others Charles XII. He was also part of the popular Swedish TV series 'Boston Tea Party.'
