Malmsteen’s new album, “Relentless”, sold around 1,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release.
Yngwie’s previous CD, “Perpetual Flame”, opened with around 2,000 units back in October 2008, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Released on November 22 via Malmsteen’s own Rising Force Records, “Relentless” contains more than 60 minutes of brand new material and showcases the guitar great at his best with the signature virtuosity and mind-blowing technical speed for which he has come to be known. “Relentless” also features striking vocals from Tim “Ripper” Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH), who first collaborated with Malmsteen on “Perpetual Flame” (Malmsteen’s first album for the Rising Force Records label).
Of the new album, Malmsteen commented, “The album title really says it all. The drive to surpass my own accomplishments can best be described with one word — relentless. After all these years of composing and playing music, I still am passionate about pushing myself to the limit — to the highest, most demanding level of playing possible.”
