This won't do much of course. But still nice to have a new release by her.

Can't wait for "Victim Of Rituals", which may be the first 'real' single.

The first debuts are in! :)

Belgian (Vl) Album Charts
83 (NEW) Colours In The Dark

Belgian (Wa) Album Charts
109 (NEW) Colours In The Dark

Dutch Album Charts
29 (NEW) Colours In The Dark :o :o

It's an usual debut in both parts of Belgium for her, but i'm shocked by the high debut in the Netherlands!
Her only charting album there so far was "What Lies Beneath" which charted for only one week at #45! :o :D :D

Two other debuts

Swedish Album Charts
53 (NEW) Colours In The Dark

MWS charted for one week at #41, WLB charted for one week at #45... so a rather low debut for CITD

Norwegian Album Charts
29 (NEW) Colours In The Dark

MWS charted for one week at #37, WLB didn't chart... so an amazing high debut there! :D

So far i'm more than happy with the results, can't wait for the german speaking countries and Finland. This could be more successful peak-wise than WLB! :)

Finnish Album Charts

AMAZING debut there!
MWS peaked at #1 but WLB only at #7 so that's an improvement again!

German Album Charts
6 (NEW) Colours In The Dark

Great debut, but i somehow expected a Top5 debut :oops:
WLB and "Act I" peaked higher in Germany than in Finland, this time it's the other way again.

Also kinda surprising, CITD is her lowest entry on the german album charts, but you could have guessed it (MWS #3 -> WLB #4 -> AI #5 -> CITD #6) :o :lol:
