    I'll move Metallica's certifications here from my earlier thread i.e http://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=40268
    This way all information relating to Metallica's sales and certification can be compiled in a single thread. Thank you Zago for your suggestion.

            In Sweden Black album was also platinum (100.000) in December 92. The album is now probably close to 2X Platinum.

              Seeing his run, I'm almost sure that it sold at least 250k in Sweden.

                That would make an average of 10500 per year between 93 and 06. Seems a lo for me, but why not

                  It was top 10 in 93 and charted an average of more than 5 weeks top 60 per year since 93. If a top 100 were existing in Sweden, this album should has been charted for 200 weeks+ in this country. It has also been #9 in 2004.

                      The certification levels in Sweden were changed (Platinum:100k to 80k) in Sep 96. So, if LOAD was certified in Aug, wont the shipment have been 100.000 and not 80.000?

                            The Black Album has now sold 25 million copies since 1991. Not bad at all.
