All the charts don't interessed me.
The chart positions too.
US Billboard Charts, European Charts,
German Charts, The "Metal Hammer" Charts.
I don't know where Nostradamus stand in the
German charts. Fuck off. My own chart is the
only one that can tell me: "Buy it". And next month
I have it. And when the charts tell us Nostradamus
are on #3500, it don't impressed me.

I know charts aren't the biggest focal concern for most's not even a concern for me...however..I was curious to see where this would end up, and how high up it might get.    Now..sure, it may have  nose-dived considerably since  (most Priest albums do that, courtesy of radio stations who just won't play ANYTHING from Priest post-SFV),  but still....quite the achievement for a veteran band in this day and age of downloading availability.

...thassa my story, and I'ma stickin' to it...

Monetarily that's significant. I second the BIG...DEAL!  I don't recall charts being a focus for most metal fans. Especially Priest fans (except for bragging rights). Most press I have read on this album seem to herald it as a great work.

Nostrodamus has dropped from #40 to #88 on the Billboard Hot200 album chart. The fact that it has remained on there for 3 weeks now, should see it as being regarded as more successful than AOR which only lasted 2 if I remember correctly [ happy to be corrected]. It has dropped from #6 to #12 on the European charts in its second week. No idea what actual sales figures are, but would expect them to be lower than AOR even though it is charting better, as that is the way the market is now with downloads [ which are counted - but ripping copies for your mates isn't!].

Hot 100 is the pop singles chart. I have posted about the chart positions elsewhere [ for 'tis a hobby of mine].Revolution is their highest charting single and that was on the modern rock singles chart. Honestly why they don't just have one singles and one albums chart is beyond me, but it makes fun reading if you like these kinds of things

LOVE the new Double CD Guys... What a great piece of work.  I can't wait until July 22 when you come to Seattle.  Priest Forever!

JUDAS PRIEST takes a sharp dive on the Billboard 200.....JP dropping from #11 - #40.  Without radio support JP Nostradamus will be off the charts by next week or two.

Yeah, that is kind of strange.  Seems pretty hot to debut at  #11 !

go it....thanks.......I guess I was looking at "hot 100"......................don't know why someone would be number 11 on top 200, and not be in the "hot 100"................

Don't know where you're seeing Nostradamus at number 11 on Billboard.........I do not see it anywhere in the top 100, and have been looking since June 25th.........

#11.... Well,that`s great that the boys made the list,but do we really need justification if we like it or not,hell no!! Just play the CD`s and blast it,all true "Defenders of the Faith" will enjoy  this record.After all it is from the "Metal Gods"
[JayDee  Jepsen] Thursday, June 26, 2008 10:27:12 AM 
JP nostradamus gets no radio airplay and Motley Crue's -Saints- does. That's the difference between #11 and #5.

Hate to burst your bubble, but this will be its highest position [ and may Ian Hill break my legs if I'm wrong]. Obviously presale orders didn't soar as high as expected, but its a terrific result anyway, but it will be downhill from here sadly. As you can see cd sales are diminishing year by year. Just got the album today, and love it it, its a journey not an album [ missing the high pitched scream a bit, but beggars can't ... etc.

I would love to see this occur... Priest, finally in the Top 10.
Well deserved.

((BTW: Motley Crue's Saints Of Los Angeles is projected to hit US Top 5 . . . . ))

JK, I would love to see it break the top ten, it would be a triumph.

Yup!!   You read right my fellow Metallians!!!    Judas Priest's  "Nostradamus"  has officially debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200!!     This eclipses  "Angel of Retribution's"   chart debut of  #13 within its first week of release,  even though the figures for  "Nostradamus"  amounted some 15,000 copies less than its predecessor.

This is the time where all of us (especially those of us here in the USA) need to rally and lend further support to our heroes and make it known that  "Nostradamus"  is out there, and that Priest are VERY much alive and well!!     To get this majestic double-CD set into the Top 10 would be TREMENDOUS in scope, and frankly, I think it can be done!!!
