The Lion From The North 3/11/18

Following the news that their 2012 album 'Carolus Rex' has reached quadruple platinum status in their home country Sweden, Sabaton are excited to reveal a new lyric video for the song 'The Lion From The North' which is our Track Of The Day. The concept album - which is the band's biggest success to date - charts the rise and fall of the Swedish Empire, in particular the life of Charles XII ("Carolus Rex") who ruled it for 21 years. In an amazing coincidence, the album's quadruple platinum certification comes exactly 300 years after the King's death in 1718! The band will be presented with their quadruple platinum disc later this year, when 'Carolus Rex' will take its place as one of Sweden's most successful home-grown Rock albums. To celebrate the album's success, and to commemorate the Swedish King who inspired it, Sabaton will release a special 300th year anniversary edition of 'Carolus Rex' on Friday 30th November 30th which is the date Carolus Rex was killed in Norway.
