New York death metal veterans, SUFFOCATION, have sold 3,213 copies of their new album Pinnacle of Bedlam in the US during its first week of release. That puts the band at #152 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and at #2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) Chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Pinnacle of Bedlam is an album that we couldn't be prouder of,” commented the band. “A lot of blood and sweat went into the making of this album and the fans have responded! Thank you to all of you who support Suffocation, as well as Nuclear Blast for their support in helping to bring this brutal beast to the masses, and to our management team for keeping all the pieces together. We'll see all of you on the road on the Despise the World tour!!!”
