Only 4 weeks remain until FOLLOW THE CIPHER release their self-titled debut album on May 11, 2018 through Nuclear Blast. Its cover artwork was created by no less than SABATON‘s Chris Rörland.

Following a few trailers, it’s time for the next single, Carolus Rex. Guitarist Ken Kängstörm co-wrote the song some years ago with SABATON vocalist Joakim Brodén. Now this anthem has also found its place on ‘Follow The Cipher’. Watch the matching music video over on YouTube:

Ken commented:

“I am grateful to have gotten the opportunity to write this song with Joakim Brodén. We had a blast doing this one and every part came together very easily. A song that has a big place in my soul.”
