DIMMU BORGIR's "Death Cult Armageddon" sold 6,352 copies in the U.S. during its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan, landing at position No. 169 on The Billboard 200 chart. This sales figure stands as the largest first-week SoundScan number ever achieved by a Nuclear Blast/Century Media recording artist.
As previously reported, "Death Cult Armageddon" was recorded and mixed at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden and is the group's "most epic, majestic, somber, evil and grimmest release to date," according to guitarist Silenoz.
DIMMU BORGIR will be teaming up with NEVERMORE, CHILDREN OF BODOM and HYPOCRISY for a North American tour in November.
