HAMMERFALL COMMENTS ON AMERICAN BILLBOARD CHART DEBUT THREE-PEAT

HAMMERFALL COMMENTS ON BILLBOARD CHART - 2014-09-12

2014-09-12 - Back-to-back-to-back.

For the third time in a row – in 2009 with No Sacrifice, No Victory, in 2011 with Infected, and now once again with their 2014 release (r)Evolution - Swedish heavy metallers HAMMERFALL have steadily climbed the ranks to have their ninth studio album debut at #1 on the American Billboard Heatseekers chart and clinch their highest-ever first-week sales record in the United States in the process.

From #38 (2009) to #16 (2011) to the top of the American Heatseekers chart this week, (r)Evolution also debuted at #1 in Sweden and entered the Top 10 in five countries.

Guitarist & founding member Oscar Dronjak shares his excitement about HAMMERFALL’s great accomplishment:

“Following on the heels of the #1 in Sweden, (r)Evolution is laying siege to charts in Europe, and our chart entry in America is the highest there ever! Thank you so much for the support! The Templars of Steel have spoken and the world will have no choice but to listen!”

(r)Evolution‘s global chart entries include:

#1 - Sweden
#1 – U.S. Heatseekers chart
#4 - Germany
#4 - Czech Republic
#5 - Switzerland
#10 - Finland
#13 - Austria
#32 – U.S. Hard Music chart
#67 - France
#84 - Belgium
#105 - Netherlands
#110 – U.K.

(r)Evolution was produced by Fredrik Nordström (DIMMU BORGIR, SOILWORK, OPETH), who also helped produce the first two HAMMERFALL albums, 1997’s Glory To The Brave and 1998’s Legacy Of Kings. Album artwork is by German artist Andreas Marschall (BLIND GUARDIAN, KREATOR, IMMOLATION) and features HAMMERFALL’s hammer-wielding mascot, Hector – a Templar of Steel.
