Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
So yeah, dat new design. We’re looking flashier that ever on the site, which means that Metal By Numbers is also flashier than ever. Some new debuts would coincide well with this new design. Well, yet again we have our third week where the department of hard rock/metal debuts is not happening. But hey, no worries. There’s plenty of albums to look forward to coming up. Just ask a metal radio DJ. On the other had, we have a band in the top spot for sales this week that’s *GASP* not Five Finger Death Punch. And we do have some bands that haven’t been seen for a while like Kylesa and Sworn In popping up on the charts. And Aussie metal act Northlane has made their Metal By Numbers debut with their latest album that came out a few months back.
