Irish extreme metal outfit Primordial has entered the album charts in a number of European countries with their latest studio album, "Redemption At The Puritan's Hand." Speaking on the success, frontman AA Nemtheanga stated:

"What goes around comes around my friends, you can't keep a good band down, whatever the cliche might be! The industry may have changed vastly even since we released To the nameless dead but for a band like Primordial that resolutely goes against the grain without compromise charting at #31 is still a remarkable achievement so thanks to everyone who has supported the band through thick and thin over the last 20 years and to Metal Blade for their part in our gradual ascent since the release of The gathering wilderness. Coming from such an underdog nation as Ireland this is also a fantastic moment, we have had to work several times as hard as others to get to this point but no harm, it has given us character and the willpower to keep going regardless of what's thrown at us. So cheers and have a drink on us. See you down the front."

The chart positions are as follows:

Finland: #23
Finland (Rumba charts / only record store sales): #4
Germany: #31
Sweden: #54
Switzerland: #90
