Hello, Matt Brown here returning to bring you the charts once again. Well, mostly. It’s another week where we’ve only got sales numbers to display. But good lord do we have along list of debuts, fifteen to be exact. I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that with less than three months to go in 2017 we’re going to be seeing some big albums storming the charts, and that’s not counting any last minute releases we might not know about yet.
Primus, The Desaturating Seven (ATO)
Primus’ ninth studio album sells a little less than 2014’s Primus & The Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, but it’s still a very solid debut.
Propagandhi, Victory Lap (Epitaph)
This is the band’s fifth album in five years and it sold more than double it’s 2012 predecessor.
36 Crazyfists, Lanterns (Spinefarm)
The band’s seventh studio album didn’t sell quite as well as its 2015 predecessor.
Kublai Khan, Nomad (Rise)
This sold more than the band’s previous album.
Act Of Defiance, Old Scars, New Wounds (Metal Blade)
This half the numbers of the band’s debut album.
Kadavar, Rough Times (Nuclear Blast)
Sold just a little less than the band’s previous album.
Unsane, Sterilize (Southern Lord)
This is the band’s first album in five years.
Monolord, Rust (Riding Easy)
The band’s third album sold better than its second.
Jag Panzer, The Deviant Chord (Steamhammer/SPV)
This is the band’s tenth album.
Tetrarch, Freak (Self-Released)
This is the band’s debut album.
Great American Ghost, Hatred Stems From The Seed (Good Fight)

Over 100,000 sold
Prophets of Rage, Prophets of Rage (Caroline)
A 26% drop.

This took a typical 76% drop in week two, but it’s still doing very well for an EP.

Black Country Communion, BCCIV (J&R)
This takes a 70% drop in week two.
Greta Van Fleet, Black Smoke Rising EP (Republic)
