NIGHTWISH's 'Imaginaerum' Tops Finnish Chart

"Imaginaerum", the first album in four years from Finnish/Swedish symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH, has entered the official chart in Finland at position No. 1.

According to Rytmi.com, "Imaginaerum" sold 50,000 copies in Finland in its first two days of release. The band's first CD since 2007's "Dark Passion Play" — which was then-new singer Anette Olzon's debut — is due in North America on January 10, 2012 via Roadrunner Records.

Note: The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) in Finland has revised the sales requirements for albums to reach platinum status in the country from the pre-2010 level of 30,000 to the current 20,000.
