A brand new Youtube channel dedicated to telling the stories behind SABATON‘s music will launch next month.
The band has teamed up with historians Indy Neidell and Timeghost to create the Sabaton History Channel, which will deliver a new episode every week, each based on a different SABATON song.
The news was delivered in an exclusive trailer, shot on the recent Sabaton Cruise, and thousands of Youtube fans have already subscribed to the channel ready for the 7 February launch.

ABATON just released a special platinum edition of their legendary »Carolus Rex« album. »Carolus Rex«(2012) has been certified quadruple platinum in the band’s home country of Sweden, and in an exclusive new video, the king is seen travelling across epic Swedish landscapes to deliver the platinum discs into the hands of frontman Joakim Brodén.The video was produced to mark the incredible coincidence of the album officially reaching quadruple platinum status on the 300th anniversary of the King’s death. »Carolus Rex« is a concept album about Sweden’s 17th and 18th century empire, with a special focus on the rise and fall ofCharles XII, the tragic king who devoted his whole life to war but could not prevent his empire’s downfall.

After receiving the official discs from the king, Joakim said: “We put a lot of ourselves into making every album unique, and we had an idea that this album would particularly speak to Swedish people because it’s telling a story that’s rarely heard outside of Sweden. This album has been very successful but we’re not stopping here. Our next challenge as a band is to come up with an album that tells a story that’s as important to music fans everywhere as »Carolus Rex« has been to those in Sweden.”
