Sabaton

Swedish heavy metallers SABATON have unveiled the artwork to their upcoming eighth studio album, Heroes, due out in North America in Spring 2014. The album cover was created by Péter Sallai.

Sabaton: Heroes

“We had the title in mind since before we even recorded [2012’s] Carolus Rex and we already had ideas for artwork years ago,” states SABATON bassist Pär Sundström. “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.”

“We will record the album in Abyss Studios together with Peter Tägtgren [CHILDREN OF BODOM, AMORPHIS, IMMORTAL] who also did Carolus Rex for us,” Sundström continues. “He still has some aces in his sleeves that we are sure will lift the new album.”
