Civil War (the symphonic power metal band from ex-Sabaton members Rikard Sundén, Oskar Montelius, Daniel Mullback, and Daniel Myhr, along with frontman Nils Patrik Johansson and bass player Stefan "Pizza" Eriksson) is proud to announce that debut album "The Killer Angels" has been certified Gold in the band's home country of Sweden, selling more than 20,000 copies.

The members of Civil War were presented with their Gold plaques before headlining the Metal War festival in Budapest last weekend. Commented the band:

"Selling 20,000-plus in our home country is something none of us could ever imagine when getting into the sessions leading up to the album. Even though we felt we made a solid record, getting these numbers was still something we couldn't predict upon our wildest imagination."

"We at Despotz are incredibly proud to have reached 'Gold' status in Sweden with the band Civil War," added Despotz Records founder, Ömer Akay. "The band has received great international support from their fans, and it shows with growing sales and upcoming tours as a result. This is just the beginning of a brilliant career. We Will Rule The Universe."

"The Killer Angels" was released June 11th, 2013 via Despotz Records. Read our review at this location.
