Swedish heavy metallers HAMMERFALL have reached another important milestone in their career! Clinching the highest first-week sales of their career in excess of 1,700 units, their new album, Infected, has debuted on the following three American Billboard charts: #16 Heatseekers chart; #33 Current Hard Music albums; #51 Top Hard Music albums.
HAMMERFALL guitarist and founding member Oscar Dronjak checks in from Sweden about the news:
“Awesome news, and perhaps the sign of a new dawn for HAMMERFALL in North America? Working with [producer] James Michael this time was a fantastic experience, and a huge reason the album did as well as it apparently has! We are looking to tour extensively in the U.S. this time around, so keep an eye out for a HAMMERFALL show near you!”
Infected was produced & mixed by James Michael (MÖTLEY CRÜE, SCORPIONS, MEAT LOAF) and debuted at #2 on the Swedish album chart in late May (second only to Lady Gaga).
