Arch Enemy: enters international charts with new album, 'War Eternal'
Arch Enemy:  enters international charts with new album, 'War Eternal'

Released internationally last week via Century Media Records/Trooper Entertainment, ARCH ENEMY's War Eternal is taking the world by storm! The album entered the Billboard Top 200 at #44 (their highest position to date!), as well as Germany at #9 (previous album: #15), the Dutch charts at #36, Finland at #5 (previous: #9), UK at #85 (previous: #107), Austria at #13 (previous: #37), Switzerland at #16 (previous: #41) and Japan's Oricon chart at #7 (international artists).

ARCH ENEMY just wrapped-up the first part of their European tour. New singer Alissa White-Gluz is taking a much needed break to rest her broken rib as band leader Michael Amott found time to thank everybody for believing in War Eternal: "I am truly blown away by the fan and industry support for ARCH ENEMY and our new album. Seeing 'War Eternal' surpass previous efforts after what we went through last year is extremely gratifying to say the least! There are too many people involved in this to thank them all for this initial success of the record, what I can say is that we know who you are! ARCH ENEMY is energized by the response to the new music as we continue to tour hard throughout 2014/2015 - the war has just begun!"
