Metal By Numbers 8/6: Theory of a dead week in sales

Posted by on August 6, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. For the past month or so, we’ve seen major releases from the biggest bands in metal from Mastodon to Overkill. So it’s only natural that we’d get an off-week where not only are there […]

Metal By Numbers 7/30: Overkill’s ‘Armory’ army out in force

Posted by on July 30, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. We’re Metal Insider, not Scene Kid Insider, so that’s why Overkill is our top story. Any time a band with a 35 year career gets the highest charting album of their career, you’ve gotta […]

Metal By Numbers 7/23: The sound of Silence

Posted by on July 23, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. The fourth album by Suicide Silence is titled You Can’t Stop me, and it’s strangely appropriate. It’s an album of firsts – their first album with Eddie Hermida following the untimely passing of Mitch Lucker, […]

Metal By Numbers 7/16: Judas Priest redeem record sales

Posted by on July 16, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. Retirement plans for metal bands (or really any kind of rock band) seem to involve the same thing: big final tour with possibly a final album, then at some point someone says “Well, we […]

Metal By Numbers 7/9: You can’t fight the Seether

Posted by on July 9, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. It’s a pretty slow week for metal debuts. Unlike last week, there aren’t any heavy albums landing in the top ten. Active rock band Seether have a pretty solid debut for themselves, but that’s almost […]

Metal By Numbers 7/2: Once more ’round the charts

Posted by on July 2, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. It’s a strange feeling when something so highly anticipated is finally in your hands.

Metal By Numbers 6/25: The fault in our Stars In Stereo

Posted by on June 25, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. I know absolutely nothing about The Fault In Our Stars apart from the fact that a) I incorporated its title into this week’s Metal By Numbers, and b) it’s apparently a big sobfest. But (presumably) no […]

Metal By Numbers 6/18: Can we get a Hellyeah?

Posted by on June 18, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. There are a lot of great debuts this week from a lot of great bands. Oh, there’s a few odd ones here and there (Tesla and Night Ranger? What year is this?), but otherwise […]

Metal By Numbers 6/12: The charts get f*cked up

Posted by on June 12, 2014

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. As the late great George Carlin once explained, no word is more versatile in its usage than the word “fuck”. It’s funny to think that there was a time when the usage of any […]
