Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
So did Five Finger Death Punch decide on the title of the new album before or after the release of the film The Fate of the Furious a.k.a. F8? Either way, the band is back, and if you’ve been following this column for awhile, you know FFDP albums tend to stick around for a very, very long time. Their 2018 album And Justice For None stuck around until last September. And while 44,750 might not be their highest opening number, it’s pretty damn big for pure album sales in 2020.
