Sweden war metallers Sabaton bring another batch of wartime anthems to the table with "Carolus Rex". Having never listened to the band before, I was unsure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. "Carolus Rex" is chock full of epic, sweeping song with massive choral arrangements. There is a lack of guitar and solos on the album which takes away a little for me. Previous releases of the band have focused on different wars as the main theme and "Carolus" continues that tradition. Overall, the album is pretty decent if you don't mind more classically inclined metal, otherwise save your clams for better offerings.
