Damn! That's the cutest thing I've read all week.
Congratulations, Dark Tranquillity!
It's funny seeing Green Day and U2, then Dark Tranquillity right between em! Congratulations guys!
got my two signed copies of character yesterday. great stuff.
i hope DT sells lots of albums in the US so that they'll come back for a headlining tour.
Character is awesome! I'll see you guys at the Tuska Winter War..
Anna, we're not in Norway
Great, nice job dudes! I'll have check finnish charts now, but I don't expect such a position here.
WTF, how can an actually good band be in the swedish list and #3 no less?
I liked the part when Anna farted in Norway's general direction.
We need more straightforward people like her.
It wasn't in Norway's general direction.
We need to pay more straightforward attention to threads
Dark Tranquillity - Character is #30.
[For people to compare: Rotten Sound - Exit was #22 on first week.]
ok found a list of chart entrys od Character:
#1 swedish metalcharts
#1 in greek metalcharts
#39 Uk rockcharts
Thanks for the update, soleald. I wonder if they're on the Billboard chart? One must subscribe to the 'zine in order to view the charts online. (Does anyone here from the US subscribe?)
So how about radio airplay in those countries you listed? Most major rock stations here in the US are clueless. I've noticed very few (if any) non-American, non-British, non-Canadian, non-Aussie bands get the attention of US radio programmers. Of course this is excluding the underground and online radio stations. No, the big media conglomerate rock stations here can't even come to terms with the "Metal" name for the genre. They call the new breed of hard n heavy music "Active Rock." (hah!) Their idea of "international," that I've heard so far, includes maybe Rammstein and The Scorpions. Here's Chicago one and only "Active Rock" station's current Top 10 as of yesterday:
1. Mötley Crüe
2. Alter Bridge
7. Velvet Revolver
8. Cradle of Filth
10. Breaking Benjamin
Here is another link to thread at Chicago Radio board http://members5.boardhost.com/Crow_On/msg/36132.html that will illustrate how much these dicks don't care about the music. They only care about their $bottom line$ 'kin assholes.
i don't think they're on any "standard playlist", but they've been interviewed at a couple of shows on swedish channel p3 (and in connection to one of them they played - i'm not quite certain which it was - the new build or lost to apathy).
I'll be seeing you there then, hehe
@Delirious: Thanks! Count yourselves lucky.
