Dark Tranquillity's new melodic Death Metal masterpiece “Character” is set to become the most successful album in the band’s history: In Sweden they just entered the official national charts on an outstanding position 3. The band is excited about the news:

Weird! After having spent 16 years writing and performing songs for a small but devoted subculture, we suddenly find our new album on position #3 in the national Swedish album charts - and all this without having to compromise one single bit with our music.

Our aim has always been to do our own thing without paying too much attention to the current norms in the music scene; to give people time to change to appreciate our particular brand of mayhem rather than having us changing our music in a vain attempt to gain mass appeal. It seems like that time finally is here - and it's not a decade too late!

We'd like to thank all of you who have taken the initiative of buying "Character", and we're truly flattered by the fantastic feedback and reviews given so far. The chart position is a great way to kick off the European tour with Kreator, Hatesphere and Ektomorf, starting in just a few days. See you down the road!

Besides this brilliant chart-entry, the band is on top score position # 1 in the Swedish Metal charts. Keeping in mind that the band reached Position 47 with the “Lost To Apathy EP” in the Swedish single charts upon its release in November, the term “all the way success” is legitimate.

Don’t miss them live on tour with Kreator all over Europe starting next week (Exact dates in "tourdates")! “Character” is out now.
