Metal Monday–Swedecore!

So I’ve got a few songs that I play on steady rotation.  Today’s Metal Monday is one of them–Sabaton’s “Carolus Rex.”

I’m not saying the guy was crazy…but I think the king was a little crazy.  Not George III mad, but when you think that you’re taking orders directly from heaven?  That might be a sign.


At any rate, as will become apparent throughout Metal Monday, I’m a big fan of heavy metal + history.  Sabaton is one of the best at it, but it seems everyone from Iron Maiden to Metallic (“One,” “Creeping Death,” and “For Whom The Bell Tolls” are the examples that come most quickly to mind) has dabbled.
