DETHKLOK’s first-ever CD release “The Dethalbum”, has quickly become “the best-selling death metal album of all time since its release in September,” according to a press release. The LP sold nearly 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position #21 on The Billboard 200 chart. It also dominated the Loud Rock radio charts, hitting #6 on CMJ, #11 on FMQB, and #1 on Mediaguide metal specialty. The CD was also streamed 45,000 times when it went live on AOL Music during the week of its release.
The September 25 release of “Metalocalypse: Dethklok’s The Dethalbum” coincided with the start of Season 2 of “Metalocalypse” on Adult Swim and the release of “Metalocalypse: Season 1” on DVD. The DVD, which hit streets on October 2, sold over 18,000 units in its first two days.
