Sabaton - Carolus Rex

Swedish heavy metal band Sabaton released the album Carolus Rex earlier this year. The band was so happy with the material they decided to release two versions of the record - one with english lyrics and one with swedish lyrics.

The album is a concept album about the 'War of 30 Years' in the 18th century. The band hired a history expert to get the facts for the lyrics right. The result? One of their best albums to date.

The best song: A Lifetime Of War / En Livstid I Krig
I prefer the swedish version because the lyrics makes more sense for me, being swedish and all… The song is actually a very sad song about leaving your family to go to war, not knowing if you are going to return or not.

Swedish lyrics.

English lyrics.
