Opeth's "Sorceress" Reachers No. 8 on Billboard Top Current Sales Chart


Less that a couple weeks after the debut of Sorceress, Opeth has already surpassed their previous release, Pale Communication, in sales. More importantly, they have also taken several Billboard titles both in the U.S. and around the world.

Added to their collection of achievements are the following:

#8 Top Current Sales

#24 Top 200

#1 Hard Music

#4 Independent Label

#5 Vinyl

Then around the world, they've garnered

#11 in the UK

Germany at #1

Australia at #7

Holland at #11

These numbers come as no surprise given the years of experience and expertise of the members, that have come together to form the supergroup Opeth. Critics and fans have brandished the record are the band's best to date.
