Sabaton revealed the artwork and tracklising for their forthcoming album 'Carolus Rex' last month. The album will be released on 25 May through Nuclear Blast Records.
The lyrics of the album are about the Swedish Empire (the Kingdom of Sweden between 1561 - 1721) and are sung entirely in Swedish.
The band commented: "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.'
