Bruce Dickinson

Bruce Dickinson celebrates the worldwide chart success of The Mandrake Project



#3 IN UK





Bruce Dickinson’s brand-new album, The Mandrake Project, has become a global smash hit with huge chart success already announced across Europe and Latin America, with further major worldwide chart positions to follow this week.

In Germany and Sweden Bruce has topped the album charts, whilst in the UK the album has entered the Official Album Charts at No.3, just behind Liam Gallagher & John Squire at No.1, and narrowly pipped to the No. 2 spot by Rod Stewart and Jools Holland with a last-minute Mother’s Day surge of sales.

Elsewhere the album is already a Top 10 success in many European countries’ national charts including Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands and France. And in Latin America’s iTunes charts The Mandrake Project is Top 10 in both Brazil and Mexico, with many more countries following suit in the days to come.

Bruce – pictured above with his No.1 Award in Germany – comments; “I’m delighted that so many people love the record. It’s been incredible to hear directly from so many fans in the countries I’ve visited over the last week or so, and the chart positions are just icing on the cake to be honest. I can now focus on bringing The Mandrake Project & songs from my previous albums to life on the tour next month. See you on the road!”

Featuring the singles ‘Afterglow of Ragnarok’ and ‘Rain On The Graves’ the ten-track collection has been receiving swathes of critical acclaim, with rave reviews running around the world.

The Mandrake Project is Dickinson’s seventh solo album and is released via BMG worldwide on multiple formats.

“[His] voice still soars over grandiose metal, yet the music is darker and heavier than his work with Iron Maiden” - Daily Telegraph

“The wildly ambitious, mostly hard rock but genre-blurring The Mandrake Project” - The Sun (4/5)

“The Mandrake Project demands and rewards total absorption into its kaleidoscopic sound picture… Bruce’s extraordinary voice… has rarely sounded more assertive, upfront and in your face, urging his vocals to new levels of expressive emotion and dramatic control” - Metal Hammer (9/10)

“His most ambitious and best solo work to date… He sounds great, his voice properly doing the rounds through the narrative, as the beefy riffs – much more so than in Maiden – and gritty production add a layer of their own” - Kerrang (4/5)

“Epic… grandiose… infectious. Easily one of Bruce Dickinson’s boldest projects” - Classic Rock (4/5)

“Bruce creates a vivid world of magic and mayhem… a solo project worth investing in” - Daily Star (4/5)

“Spectacular solo outing… surely his most innovative and creative yet. Heavy but easily accessible” - Record Collector (4/5)

“Simply brilliant… we are already looking at one of rock and metal’s defining genre-crossing albums of 2024” - Powerplay (10/10)

“Its themes are plainly evident in the earworm metal of ‘Many Doors To Hell’ and gothic menace of ‘Fingers In The Wounds’, although more subdued (but equally sombre) hues inform the portentous, piano-led power ballad ‘Shadow Of The Gods’ – Uncut

“A titanic and resonating piece of work” - Metal Talk

“This is highly atmospheric metal, full of muted guitars and shaded melodies with Bruce sounding absolutely phenomenal” - Fistful Of Metal (9/10)
