Thank to all our Finnish fans who have bought the album instead of downloading it!
Not surprising, and I hope it makes it to number 1, Polaris deserves such greatness after all the years since E1. Good luck to the rest of the tour guys! :) And hope to see another UK tour in the future! :D

Congratulation!

Damn, Finland is such a metal country to live in. Where else you'd have metal bands topping mainstream charts and pertain popular culture in such a way. Rest of the world - take fukking notice and follow suit!

Damn.
Black Metal is the game I play cos' no one shows me the right way...

Yeah, I was meant to mention Germany too. Sodom once entered at #34 with Agent Orange I think. Quite impressive considering what they're playing. Germany is definitely a metal motherland :) But Finland has to be the top country with regards to how much heavy metal is integrated into everyday pop culture, from charts, TV and radio to the national psyche.

Dream metal country plus I absolutely adore the climate there.

Aaaargh, wish all earth was covered by ice sheets :)

I'm happy for you guys. I didn't really have my hopes high after Deep Unknown -single, umm, underperformed, but this makes up for it. :)

=O oh my... that's interesting... american-style hip-hop in Suomi.

what is the meaning of "Liekeissä"?
"In flames"

Wait, is there anything else but American-style hiphop anyway? :P
I think not, hehehe
German Hip-Hop. And most of it is crap.

That's so great!!
But should be in #1
Who's in position 1? :?

Also, is sad that here in México, theese kind of albums take ages to come. I had to order both Age of Aquarius and Polaris trough Amazon, and so I'll have to do it with Cain's Offering "Gather the Faithfull".
It's sad because Green Day's new piece of mediocre music was in stores from the first day they launched it, but no Polaris u_u

Well Cheek doesn't really count, it's just superpopular teenager music, hit stuff bought by pretty much lots of people who don't know of anything better.

Polaris is on CDON.com sites Tv commercial!
TK was on radio rock commercial (I think. well I'm not sure was it radio rock commercial)
And They were talking about Polaris and Lauri on radio rock another day. They just introduced When Mountains Fall (I was quite suprised to hear that WMF was the song they played on the radio.)
And they also played on a few other times Deep Unknown.

So they are doing well in the media.
Maybe this will cause a new generation of fans.

Do you have any idea of the link to get access to "radio rock" and be able to listen that station through internet? Would be awesome.

Cheers! :beer:

Awesome.
Congrats.
I don't know how well it will perform in the US/Canada. However, I can't be counted in those country though I live in Canada, I bought my album in Japan (well, through online ordering). So, mine counts in the Oricon :P
Power Metal FTW
