12 Jacket (Gatefold - Two Pocket) [GD30OB2-N]It’s not really rare when a commercial metal or rock band breaks the top 100 of the billboard charts, but for a true metal band with no commercial radio play, it’s a huge thing. Death Metal legends Obituary released their latest offering Inked In Blood back on October 27TH and the album has debuted at number 75 on the Billboard Top 100 which is the band’s highest charted album to date. The band also sold five times as many records as their last album 2009’s Darkest Day and this album was their debut release for Relapse Records. The band commented on the success saying “We could not be more excited about the first week of sales and Inked In Blood‘s chart position. We knew this was a monster record that the fans were dying to get their hands on, and everybody seems to really be digging it. Now it’s time to put the hammer down and focus on the second week of sales. We knew Obituary fans were some of the most devoted fans on the planet and we are looking forward to watching as they help us blow this thing out of the water.” To celebrate the success, the band will be hard at work touring through North American and Europe fro the rest of 2014 and 2015. So, I want to personally congratulate the band that is already three decades in, this is a huge accomplishment for Death Metal and the band. Here are the tour dates for North America:
