Sabaton are a Swedish Grammi-nominated power
metal band from Falun. Their music is battle-minded with a
historical slant, bringing to mind Iron Maiden s classic songs
with a newer school edge.
They initially geared up for war and started to make
plans for world domination in 99, and are starting to realize
this destiny on their seventh full-length album, Carolus Rex.
The theme of the album is the Swedish Empire and lyrical
references are to the Kingdom of Sweden between 1561
and 1721, though the lyrics are in English.
Coming off of Coat of Arms breakthrough momentum
and with far more visibility Stateside than ever before,
Sabaton are now ready to spread the word even further.
The songs are more powerful, more personal and more
bombastic - the perfect album for any power metal fan!
