MNEMIC: 'Mnemesis' First-Week Sales Revealed

"Mnemesis", the fifth studio album from Danish/French modern metallers MNEMIC, sold around 800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 38 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.

Commented MNEMIC guitarist/songwriter Mircea Gabriel Eftemie: "Good news for the MNEMIC campfire machine: we climbed the charts by 25 positions since the last album! A big thumbs up and thanks to everyone at Nuclear Blast USA who have been promoting the album like there is no tomorrow. Most importantly, to everyone that bought a copy of the new album, we highly appreciate the support and are eternally thankful towards all of you out there! Actually, we are throwing out eternal thank-yous-thumbs-ups-cheerios and 'skål for helvede og mojn i øjn' to everyone involved! That means 'Cheers Goddamnit and see you!' in Danish. See you very soon on tour both in Europe and the U.S.!"

MNEMIC's fourth studio album, "Sons Of The System", opened with around 600 units in Janaury 2010 to enter the Top New Artist Albums chart at No. 64.

"Mnemesis" was recorded at Antfarm studios in Aabyhøj, Denmark with longtime producer Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, HIMSA, SICK OF IT ALL). The cover artwork was created by Metastazis (MORBID ANGEL, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, PARADISE LOST, ULVER) and can be seen below.
