    IFPI has nothing to do with worldwide sales, they only certify European sales. And you're right "Reload" is only certified for sales of 1 million in Europe. That happened shortly after release in 1997. It has probably sold a lot more by now in Europe, but don't blame IFPI, the record company has to apply (and pay) for further certifications, which they apparently haven't done...

        Reload in some European countries :

        - UK : 170.000
        - Germany : 600.000
        - France : 150.000
        - Spain : 100.000
        - Finlande : 45.271
        - Austria : 20.000
        - Switzerland : 50.000 (#3 (18))
        - Norway : #1 (11) (at least 20.000)
        - Sweden : 100.000
        - Poland : 100.000
        - Netherland : 50.000 (#6 (27))
        - Italia : #66 of the year (over 100.000).

        Total : 1.505.271

        Some of those numbers are certifications only (sometimes very old) so the total should be higher.

        I think that his sales are between 1.8 million and 2 millions in Europe.

              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.

                        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.
