Sabaton’s ‘Carolus Rex’ is yet another epitome of the band's talent for epic sounds: awesome anthems, impressive choirs, mighty riffs, and simply catchy power tracks without any commercial suck-up are the trademarks of this perfect album. With this release, Sabaton will make their followers very, very happy – once again.
Carolus Rex (English version including four bonus tracks)
After 326 weeks in the Swedish charts, and the 300th anniversary of Carolus Rex himself, this Platinum edition is a fantastic memento for any Sabaton fan, and the pictures online do not do the actual product any justice.
The cover is a haunting, (highly) reflective platinum with a greatly intricate design that brings a touch of elegance and power to the original release. The only downside being that in the reflection, I can only see my own face, which spoils it really.
The actual music speaks for itself.
