Thoughts on “Carolus Rex,” performed by Follow The Cipher (orig. Sabaton)

Hey everyone,

As you probably know, I’m a big fan of music.  I’m open to pretty much every genre, but rock is my natural home.  I played a lot of Nirvana on a drum-set back in high school, and while I’m a bit less grungy now, I still dig distorted guitar.  One song that Youtube recently threw at my feet and I fell in love with is “Carolus Rex,” as performed by the band Follow The Cipher.  While it was originally performed by the band Sabaton, what fascinates me so much about this song is that it’s not about some random ruler, but rather about Sweden’s Charles XII.
