Meanwhile, on the albums chart in this country, thrash-metal band Kreator, from the west German city of Essen, claim their first #1 album with their fourteenth studio set Gods Of Violence...


Another act from that area of the country, Kärbholz from North Rhine-Westphalia, arrive at #2 with their seventh album Überdosis Leben ("Overdose Life"). It's their second trip to the top ten after their last release Karma in 2015...


Rapper Soufian from Offenbach climbs in at #3 with Alle' Alle'...


MC Bilal comes in at #6 with Alles Zu Seiner Zeit ("All In Good Time") (There's no video available in the States as yet - in Europe you can check it here)...

And in a completely different direction, schlager-pop trio Fernando Express, around since the late 60s, roll in at #7 with Das Beste...
