Official press release via Lambgoat:
Australia’s incendiary extreme musical export, Thy Art Is Murder, sold just under 7,500 copies of Holy War in the first week of sales in the U.S. launching the record to #82 Billboard Top 200, #43 Current Albums, #6 Independent Albums, and #3 Top Hard Music Album. This marks the first time Thy Art Is Murder has made the coveted chart. The band saw similar success in their homeland where they reached #7 on the Aria Charts – the highest position ever for an Australian extreme metal act.
The band commented about the success of Holy Wars: “Thank you to everyone who picked up a copy first week, from the bottom of our cold, dead hearts, we love you.”
Catch the band live in Wilmington, NC on July 28 at Ziggy’s By The Sea.
