Another top 10 album placing for Sol Invictus with the Faith No More album going in at number 6 in Portugal.

It is the only anglophone record in the top 14 on the chart and testament to the hardcore support the band have in the country – as anyone who saw them at the Optimus Alive festival in 2010 will testify.

In other chart news, the album slipped to number 35 in the official UK album charts in its second week, number 10 in Australia and number 11 in New Zealand.

But in terms of peak positions and opening week placings, Sol Invictus has hit the top 10 in 18 countries (if you include the proper US chart)
