Canada? Who would've thought.  ;)
I didn't know there were so many people from the USA that liked Machinae. This is great!
I bet California wins as most sales in the USA.

What i found interesting is that both sweden and Finland feature very strongly, yet not much from Denmark. Is there a big culture difference or something?

well Sweden and Finland are to be expected (Machinae hail from Sweden as we all know and Finland has many Machinae fans) i'm suprised at Norway not being there either, also there appear to be no French fans...(i apologize if there are any of you)

Norway would prolly come 11th :)

France is a notoriously poor country for MbD and not just with this CD, i wonder if this is echo'd from other companies.

Yes, there is. Nobody in the world can understand the danish language, since it's just a random mix of guttural sounds and sluggish teeth-grinding.. I think that's the problem. ;)

You can try and force feed them the music, until they would sumbit to it.

I guess people from austrlia would have ordered at least 4> of CDs.

The thing about your music tastes it comes from your peers and commerical stuff on the radio. Let me emphasise a point. So if you get more of the word around to friends and maybe radio stations you should be able to pick up a bigger fan base then there already it.

For example group 1. like maticalla, so did I . Then group 2 came along and they liked dancy-trance stuff, so did I. Group 3, liked death-metal and hip-hop. And so did I (well not really death metal, but hip-hop)

Didn't realize there were so many US fans.  But from the looks of that list, Machinae has footholds all over the world.  You're well on your way to world domination, guys ;) Keep it up!

Bah, half my family speaks Danish. It's not that bad.
I'll see what I can do about geting my friends who are into metal and are over there to order it. ;)

What's the top ten look like if you sort by CD's per capita. I don't think USA would make the top ten.  ;D

Arr! Nothing wrong with danish language. We can praise outselves with being very competent at learning new languages! And we were number 1 for having the most drinking culture in the World! ... until a crap land from the south took us surprise... They had lower beer prices... But... BEER!

Don't mess with tha danes!

How about somebody work out the sales as a ratio to the population of the country. That'd be a more accurate depiction ;) USA would fall off the bottom I bet. The Scandinavian countries would hold the top.

1 person bought and only 2 people live there ;)

Btw, the biggest single location in the world to buy the CD is from the UK.

Cambridge (Especially the university)

Someone seems to have spread the word quite well there... So whoever it is, stand up and take a bow :)
