Must have sold a ton of copies in Germany (wasn’t it the best selling album of 2021 after just one week there ?).
Anyway as written above still n.1 in my country , Greece, still shops can’t keep up with the demand.
Finally n.1 in Greece in its fourth week (!!!). The album faced serious distribution problems here, only specialised stores were bringing it and it sold out almost immediately in its first few weeks of release. It must have sold an amazing number of copies, wish I had some numbers,
What’s this obsession with Nightwish ? Entire metal sub-genres took Maiden’s musical elements and modified them from power metal (both european and american) to melodeath. Seriously stop this thing about....Nightwish (of all bands). You said your piece , we get it.

I am really trying to respect the fact that you are a diehard Nightwish fan and keep my replies serious. You want to exclude the biggest markets (U.S, U.K) to draw conclusions but that’s not how it works and I will leave it at that.
Yeah and his logic , which is based on Wikipedia , is completely flawed. Here’s an example that I know first hand, cause I was actually there. Judas Priest played Rockwave festival Athens/Greece 19 July 2018. Iron Maiden played the same festival at the same venue(well not exactly venue, it was...
