"We had the title in mind since before we even recorded 'Carolus Rex' and we already had ideas for artwork years ago,” says 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.”
"Heroes" was recorded at The Abyss, the recording studio in Pärlby outside Ludvika, Sweden owned and operated by record producer and musician Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN).
”[Peter] still has some aces in his sleeves that we are sure will lift the new album,” says Sundström.

"I’m really excited about coming on board with KILL DEVIL HILL,” says Kelly. “I’ve been a fan since their debut and have known the guys for a long time. It’s also clear that I have some really big shoes to fill. I’m ready for that challenge as I prepare for KILL DEVIL HILL's next chapter. This is gonna be a blast!”

Rob Zombie will release a new concert DVD and Blu-ray, titled "The Zombie Horror Picture Show", on May 20. To go along with the DVD and Blu-ray, there will be a “killer book” by photographer Rob Fenn, according to Zombie.
"The Zombie Horror Picture Show" will feature footage filmed during stops on last year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Mayhem Festival tour in Houston on August 3, 2013 and Dallas on August 4.
DVD and Blu-ray track listing is as follows:
01. Teenage Nosferatu Pussy 02. Superbeast 03. Super-Charger Heaven (originally by WHITE ZOMBIE) 04. Living Dead Girl 05. We’re An American Band (GRAND FUNK RAILROAD cover) 06. More Human Than Human (originally by WHITE ZOMBIE) 07. Sick Bubblegum 08. Never Gonna Stop 09. Ging Gang Gong De Do Gong De Laga Raga 10. Meet The Creeper 11. Mars Needs Women 12. House Of 1000 Corpses 13. The Lords Of Salem 14. Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Supertown 15. Thunder Kiss ‘65 (originally by WHITE ZOMBIE) 16. Dragula
Zombie has never released a concert DVD before and told an Albany radio station that he always thought of doing one as a “huge nuisance,” adding, “After the show is done, I don’t care. I don’t want to relive it… I never wanna hear about it again, I never wanna see it again. Like, I never watch anything — a TV show I’ve been on; I don’t care. Once it’s done, it’s done. But I figured at least once we should film it.”
Zombie did roll cameras during his 2008 "Educated Horses" tour, but had very different plans for that still-unseen footage. “I didn’t want to really just make a live DVD ‘cause I thought, like, who cares,” he told The Pulse Of Radio. What I really did was I made, like, a tour documentary, where like it starts with the first rehearsal through building the stage through, you know, traveling and flying and playing every show and after show and this and that. And, you know, it’s so many hundreds of hours of footage.”
Zombie's fifth solo album, "Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor", came out last April and entered the Billboard album chart at No. 7 with first-week sales of 34,000 copies.
Zombie will kick off a 12-date run of shows on April 26 in Fort Myers, Florida at the Fort Rock festival, mixing other major rock festival stops with headlining shows before wrapping it up on May 10 in Camden, New Jersey.
