Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
Good morning (or afternoon depending on your timezone). I have been knocking back mug of tea after mug of tea while writing this but that hasn’t prevented me from typing out “Voidbod” instead of “Voivod” three times in a row. And, of course, I got momentarily distracted while I tried to imagine what exactly a “Voidbod” is and if it’s anything like a “Dad bod”. I’m still not sure, all I know is that it sounds kinda cool and that I’m tired. Beartooth and Revocation top our charts this week while one or two albums popped back up on the charts thanks to some big boosts.
