Swedish metallers SABATON have released the lyric video for the English version of the title track of their new album, “Carolus Rex”. Check it out below.
SABATON recently parted ways with guitarists Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, drummer Daniel Mulback and keyboardist Daniel Mÿhr. The band’s new touring lineup is as follows:
Joakim Brodén – Vocals
Pär Sundström – Bass
Chris Rörland (NOCTURNAL RITES) – Guitar
Thobbe Englund (WINTERLONG, RAUBTIER) – Guitar
Robban Bäck (BALTIMOORE, PREY) – Drums
Commented the group: “At the moment we are still searching for a keyboard player. Until we have found the right guy we will still have Daniel Myhr with us, in digital form, since he has specially recorded all keyboards for us to use on tour. Therefore, we are not cancelling any shows at all — the war machine of SABATON will go on just as planned!”
A four-minute video clip in which the new members of SABATON are introduced can be seen below. Also available are the first two photos of the band’s new lineup.
“Carolus Rex” will be released in Europe on May 25 via Nuclear Blast Records. The lyrics for the CD, which will be made available in both English and Swedish, deal with the Swedish Empire (referring to the Kingdom of Sweden between 1561 and 1721). Source: Blabbermouth.net
