AMORPHIS' 'Forging The Land' DVD Tops Finnish Chart

After originally entering the Finnish Music DVD chart at position No. 8, AMORPHIS's first-ever live DVD, "Forging The Land Of Thousand Lakes", climbed to the top of the chart a week later and remains at No. 1 in its third week of release.

"Forging The Land Of Thousand Lakes" was released on July 9 (Europe) and July 7 (Finland) via Nuclear Blast, in time for the band's 20th anniversary.

A trailer for the DVD can be viewed below.

AMORPHIS' latest CD, "Skyforger", was honored in the "Metal Album Of The Year" category at this year's Emma Gaala (Finnish Grammy equivalent).

AMORPHIS was nominated in two categories at the Emma Gaala — "Metal Album Of The Year" and "Domestic Artist Of The Year".

"Skyforger" sold around 1,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 33 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"Skyforger" was certified gold in Finland for sales in excess of 15,000 copies. (Note: The sales requirement for albums to reach gold status in Finland was recently lowered to 10,000, but because "Skyforger" was released before this change took effect, the old rules still apply.) The bandmembers were presented with their gold plaques on July 6 at a release party for "Forging The Land Of Thousand Lakes" at Cinema Andorra in Helsinki.
