MACHINE HEAD: Storming The European Charts

In its first week of release overseas, MACHINE HEAD's new album, "Through The Ashes Of Empires", has stormed its way onto the charts, entering the German Media Control Top 100 at #24 (selling more copies in its first week than the group's previous album, "Supercharger", has sold to date), Sweden's Midweek Chart at #32, Austria's Album Chart at #58, the Dutch Mega Top 100 Album Chart at #65, the UK Album Charts at #77 (#7 on the Rock Chart), the Swiss National Album Sales Chart at #80, and the Danish Album Chart at #82. In Belgium, "Through The Ashes Of Empires" hit #68 in the Flemish Charts, #75 in the Walloon Charts and #66 on the Belgian Charts.

MACHINE HEAD are currently seeking a North American record deal following their recent split with the U.S. branch of Roadrunner Records. The band kicked off a European headlining tour on October 31 in Dublin, Ireland.
