The concept album - charts the rise and fall of the Swedish Empire, in particular the life of Charles XII ('Carolus Rex') who ruled for 21 years. In an amazing coincidence, the album's quadruple platinum certification comes exactly 300 years after the king's death in 1718.

Bass player Par Sundstrom said: "Over the past few years we've been travelling around the world to perform, while expanding Sabaton's empire into new countries and meeting incredible new fans along the way. There's no place like home though, and it's humbling to know that people in our native Sweden are still so amazingly supportive of us after all these years. Thank you to everyone who played a role in making Carolus Rex one of the most successful Swedish rock albums ever!" See the tracklisting - here.
