2009 is already shaping up to be a dominant year for the Prodigy, with a sold out arena tour and festival dates at Download, Rock Ness and Isle of Wight coming, and their popularity is just as high as ever with a number 1 album.

‘Invaders Must Die’ has gone straight to the top, knocking last week’s number 1 from Kings of Leon down to 2.

Lamb Of God will also be in the UK for live action this summer, with a date alongside Metallica and Linkin Park at Sonisphere this Auguts, and they’re new at 25 with ‘Wrath’, just ahead of Joe Bonamassa at 26 with ‘The Ballad Of John Henry’.

Elsewhere, following winning virtually every award going last month, the ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ soundtrack, from Ar Rahman and featuring MIA, has jumped from 35 to 13.
