Sabaton - New Album To Be Available With Both Swedish And English Lyrics

Swedish heavy/power metallers Sabaton have revealed that their new album titled Carolus Rex will be available in both English and Swedish language.

The band explained the details on their official website: "We can now confirm that our new album will be available with 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 in May, but already now you can pre-order the album. The album is 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."

Just because you believe in your strong morals it doesn't mean they are correct

I just came. Twice.
... For years I have traveled in coldness,
But my heart is warm as the darkened sun above me...
Nothing can never take away
What I've seen with these tired eyes

I am so getting the swedish version! As a future history teacher and as a sucker for Swedish history, this is a must for me!

The original tracklist was just in Swedish, so I thought it would be weird for such a commercially successful Nuclear Blast band not to have lyrics in English too, so this is really no surprise.
Sing me a song, you're a singer
Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil.

Great. English version, for me. Also, I'm curious to see the "Producer of Doom" vocals.
