On May 16, 2014, Swedish power metal band Sabaton will release their new album Heroes. The band has recently released the fact that this album will be available with two different album covers. They are both able to be viewed in the slideshow in this article. Sabaton are known for their lyrics regarding historical events, particularly those involving wars and other conflicts. Their last album, Carolus Rex, which was made available in both Swedish and English dealt with the Swedish Empire from the 16th to the 18th centuries. It will be interesting to see what theme, if any, or what events are covered in this new album. Like the others, the music should be fantastic and the writing has always been top notch. The band will be in Worcester at the Palladium playing a support slot for Iced Earth on April 19, 2014. On a personal level, I would prefer the alternative album art which is second in the slideshow. What do you all think? Feel free to leave comments whether you like one or the other or neither!
