sabatonOn 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«.

The forceful cover artwork for »Heroes« was created by Péter Sallai.


“We had the title in mind since before we even recorded »Carolus Rex« and we already had ideas for artwork years ago. We had a few different ones to choose from, but when we saw this one, we knew it was the right one for this album”, adds Pär Sundström.
