Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
It’s an interesting mishmash on the charts today. Record Store Day always brings a slew of random sales from exclusive vinyl releases and such, but it also brings boosts to albums that have been on here awhile. One of the more noteworthy releases is Sunn O)))’s latest album Life Metal. The album isn’t available everywhere until this Friday, April 26th, but it released on vinyl and CD at select stores for Record Store Day, so it’s making its MBN debut a little early. I for one am eager to hear it.
This is the second solo album from Andy Biersack, vocalist of Black Veil Brides.
Sunn O)))’s latest album made its debut on vinyl for Record Store Day. The album’s full release is this Friday.
As the title suggests, this album includes 12 re-recorded tracks from the band’s first four albums.
