Disappointed by this cover. Was hoping this would be the actual cover:

Not sure if this is going to be a masterpiece or a flop

It will be interesting to hear Sabaton sing about their own history for a change. And seeing as the lyrics will be in Swedish I'm pretty sure they're gonna be better (or at least seem better) than their past lyrics.

Two year long world tour? Are you serious?

Hmm...The magical Google translator only works for about half the song titles.

Lejonet från Norden - The lion from the Nordic countries; or not literally speaking "The Lion of the North".
Gott mit uns - God with us; Not Swedish but Germanic.
En livstid i krig - A sentence in war
Karolinens bön - Prayer of the Carolean; soldier of Karl XI's and Karl XII's army.
Ett slag färgat rött - A battle painted red
Poltava - Poltava; referring to the battle of Poltava
Konungens likfärd - The king's death-march; Referring to Karl XII's body being transported home to Sweden, from Norway, after being shot and murdered.

Nice cover, and refreshing theme for them, I don't know about the swedish lyrics, but anyway, looking forward for it!

The artwork[Original] or the news??

Not sure about this....may not become their greatest album since it will be in swedish and all that but I will still buy it

"Lejonet från Norden" probably refers to King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden. The only Swedish king that got the appendix "the great"
1648 refers to the peace of the 30 year long war in Westfalden, a war that Gustavus Adolphus entered 1630, but died on the battle field of Lützen 1632

"En livstid i krig" means "A lifetime in war".

I would guess "Ett Slag Färgat Rött" refers to the battle of Lund, fought between Denmark and Sweden in around 1670. The casualties on both sides were very high.
