01:45 - mz yeah that Masterity album is truly the most chaotic album I\ve ever heard
01:44 - Apothecary 3rd, you have just been sharing a ton of great albums today
01:41 - !J.O.O.E.! I've been meaning to show my housemate Inland Empire for quite a few months now. Should probably get around to that sometime.
01:28 - saveusrandy Talking about Twin Peaks & Opeth, imagine a cover album of Julee Cruise songs by them.
01:27 - Netzach Indeed. Sadly a couple actors passed away (BOB, Log Lady and Pete afaik). Also, Lynch's style has changed quite a bit since the early 90's so anything is possible. Good to see a couple other Lynch fans around here anyway.
01:26 - saveusrandy Whats wrong with Sabaton? Their songwriting is excellent. Not as good as Steven Wilson or Lordi, but close.
01:23 - !J.O.O.E.! Has a lot to live up to. Might try and avoid it until it's out to avoid hyping myself up.
Swedish heavy/power metallers Sabaton have announced via their official website that the band's new album title track "Carolus Rex" is now available for streaming. You can listen to it on the video below, which features the dates on the Swedish Empire Tour 2012. The song is the Swedish version of the first single off Carolus Rex, to be released on May 25th via Nuclear Blast and is already available on iTunes. More album details were previously reported here and here.
This is pretty much instantly my favorite Sabaton song. It's epic as fuck and the ever-present cheesiness is not there anymore.
If Broden's performance on the rest of the album is as good as on this song and the guitars and keyboards are as epic and heavy, then I'm pretty sure Sabaton will have transitioned from a mediocre and uninteresting heavy-power metal band (Primo Victoria, Metalizer) to a decent one (Art of War, Coat of Arms) to one of the top acts in the genre.
I listened to the english version and yes, the Swedish version imo is much MUCH better.
