Dimmu has a foot in the Hot Topic door. Blind Guardian should somehow market the new album through WoW.

Those numbers don't include anything that isn't bought at a chain retailer. For example, my copy didn't count because I bought it at an independent record shop, not at say, Best Buy. That being said, 3,000 copies for first week's sales in the US isn't that bad these days. The last Metal Church album only sold 900-something in its first week.

Ah, I see. I wonder how well BG's last USA tour did. That'll really tell how popular they are.

I can't say for sure, but I'd believe the show I was at (@ The Trocadero in December 2006) was sold out, it was pretty packed. From what I understand just about all the shows were like that. They're definitely popular enough in America to do their own headlining tours at about 1,000 - 1,500 capacity venues and fill them up fairly well.

They had a show here. It was selling really well, almost sold out, but they had to cancel for some reason.

That's quite good for sure.

Actually that's what I have them listed as on my itunes. Their progressive nature is probably why I like them so much. I only have Imaginations From the Other Side and A Twist in the Myth. I used to have Batallions of Fear, Follow the Blind, and Tales From the Twilight World too. I still like the first two, but I wasn't too fond of Tales...

Nice!

Really, I think those two albums are incredible. If they have an album that's better than Imaginations From the Other Side, I need it, right now, because that really must be one hell of an album. I've heard Nightfall in Middle Earth is really good, but I've never been able to find it in any stores.
