Swedish metallers SABATON have announced via their official website that their latest album “Carolus Rex” has achieved platinum status in Sweden and the band have made history by doing so. Here is what they had to say:
“As Sabaton we normally write about history, but today those tables are turned and we can proudly say that we ourselves have now become a part of history!
We have just received the amazing news that our album Carolus Rex has now reached platinum sales in Sweden and that we are the only Swedish heavy metal band ever to have done this. So that makes Carolus Rex the most successful Swedish heavy metal album ever!
This is an amazing achievement, a milestone and proof that all the long tours, hard work and difficult choices we have had to make have been the right ones. Our biggest thanks from the deepest of our hearts to all the people who have supported us on this journey. No words are enough for what you have done for us or what we feel today.”
