I don't know if Nightwish or Children of Bodom ever sold over 500,000 copies when they were on Nuclear Blast Records but I highly doubt it. Could it be possible that Testament will reach this plateau with their upcoming album or am I being way to optimistic. Okay maybe that's a little far fetched but I do think they will sell around 400,000 copies world wide with this new album. If this isn't the most anticipated thrash metal album of all time then I don't know what is? The metal community has been starving for a new Testament album for 8 years and Alex Skolnick is back for good. They have been touring since 2005 with the original members and it's been a huge success and I've never seen the fans go so nuts before for Testament. The momentum they have steered up for this album is insane and Nuclear Blast will do a wonderful job of promoting and marketing the album. I see the album reaching the same heights as albums like Practice What you Preach and the Ritual in terms of copies sold. If you think about it, Demonic sold well over 200,000 units on a shitty record label that went bankrupt and had distribution problems. That ain't gonna happen this time around!
