Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
Hi all, and welcome back. There’s one
debut this week, but that’s really it. Late December/early January is historically a sparse time for album releases. So make sure you check out Mr. Fehl’s New & Noteworthy
column each week so you can stay up to date with what’s up and coming to future editions of MBN. This week is mostly some of the same mainstays you saw late last year along with a few albums that have popped up again.
The band’s fourth album is their best debut yet.
