Thy Art Is Murder has debuted in the top 100 U.S. albums.

Official press release: Australia's incendiary extreme musical export, Thy Art Is Murder, sold just under 7,500 copies of Holy War in the first week of sales in the U.S. launching the record to #82 Billboard Top 200, #43 Current Albums, #6 Independent Albums, and #3 Top Hard Music Album. This marks the first time Thy Art Is Murder has made the coveted chart. The band saw similar success in their homeland where they reached #7 on the Aria Charts – the highest position ever for an Australian extreme metal act.
