Enslaved Enters Billboard Charts With New Album, "Axioma Ethica Odini"

Norwegian progressive black metal outfit Enslaved has entered the Billboard Heatseekers (New Artists) chart at number sixteen after selling around 1,400 copies of their new studio album, "Axioma Ethica Odini." The album also reached number 40 in the Current Hard Music Albums chart, and number 72 on the Independent Current Albums chart.

Guitarist/songwriter Ivar Bjørnson has checked in from the road in Europe with their reaction to the news: "We received news last week of the great first week sales in the US with accompanying chart positions. Most important is the fact that we out-did our own previous achievements (with 2008’s Vertebrae) in the US market. We’re not competing with anything else than our own ambitions. We want to express our sincere appreciation to the wonderful people at Nuclear Blast US for their relentless efforts in promoting Enslaved, as this is also their achievement!"
