DARK TRANQUILLITY's 'Where Death Is Most Alive' Tops Swedish Music DVD Chart

November 6, 2009

"Where Death Is Most Alive", the new DVD from Swedish melodic death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY, has entered the Music DVD chart in the band's home country at position No. 1.

Commented guitarist Niklas Sundin: "We are immensely pleased to report that the people of Sweden still have a great taste in music. Our 'Where Death Is Most Alive' DVD just premiered at the #1 spot on the official Swedish DVD charts, kicking the asses of such luminaries as ABBA, MICHAEL JACKSON and MADONNA.

"Needless to say, we're humbled by the great response the DVD is receiving, and judging by the reactions at last weekend's official theatre screening we definitely have a winner on our hands. Everyone involved invested a lot of time and effort into putting together a package that really would be special and that would live up to the high expectations people would have of a 20-year anniversary release such as this, so it's great to see that it paid off.

"Thanks to everyone that attended and to everyone that has purchased the DVD."

The "Where Death Is Most Alive" CD/DVD was released on October 26 in Europe (it will be made available on November 17 in the U.S.) via Century Media Records. The footage was filmed on October 31, 2008 in Milan, Italy — a concert which makes up the upcoming DVD's main feature. Disc 1 contains 20 tracks recorded at the Milan show while disc 2 offers the "Out Of Nothing"DARK TRANQUILLITY documentary, another 21 rare live videos and all of the band's previously released promotional clips.

"Where Death Is Most Alive" was released as limited kingsize mediabook 2DVD/2CD, 2DVD, 2CD and digital download. The audio formats consist of the main show's material, mixed by Tue Madsen.
