After having Phantom Antichrist for a couple of days, I can safely say it has topped my list. It's not as good as Hordes of Chaos, but still an amazing album.
Carolus Rex (Sabaton) is very good, but it's the first of their releases where I feel they're starting to repeat themselves. Then again, topping Coat of Arms is a pretty difficult task.
