On the 16th of May, Swedish Heavy Metal band SABATON will release the follow up to their successful »Carolus Rex« record, which will be called »Heroes«. Today SABATON release an additional cover artwork and leave the following statement: “Hi everyone, and many thanks for the huge response on our new album artwork made by Peter Sallai. Just like »Carolus Rex« and »Swedish Empire Live« our new album »Heroes« will have an alternate artwork for some editions. Here it is, what do you think?" »Heroes« is right now recorded at Abyss Studio, along with producer Peter Tägtgren (AMORPHIS, CHILDREN OF BODOM and more), with whom SABATON already worked on »Carolus Rex«. “He still has some aces in his sleeves that we are sure will lift the new album”, says bass player Pär Sundström.
