NAPALM RECORDS Continues Global Domination

NAPALM RECORDS is continuing their global chart domination. This time in Germany! NAPALM RECORDS now has had their second #1 album in five weeks on the German Media Control Charts. Last week saw Salatio Mortis come in at #1, End of Green at #13 and Powerwolf and #45.  Powerwolf has been on the German Media Control Chart for the past five weeks including a #1 debut!

NAPALM RECORDS CEO Markus Riedler commented on the chart positions:

“We are so excited of our success with Powerwolf #1 German and #38 World Charts and Saltatio Mortis #1 German Charts that we cant wait to see the same kind of success in USA and Canada. Two number one albums in 5 weeks is more like a dream!”

With release from Devildriver, Vista Chino, The Answer, Monster Magnet and more, 2013 is shaping up to be year of NAPALM RECORDS. With no signs of slowing down, look for NAPALM RECORDS to be a force to be reckoned with now and for the foreseeable future.
