Metal By Numbers 5/29: Rammstein triumph in Amerika

Posted by on May 29, 2019

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
 
It should come as no surprise that Rammstein’s first album in ten years topped the list this week. It’s #4 in pure album sales and #1 on the Billboard 200, which makes this Rammstein’s highest charting album in the US (Liebe ist für alle da debuted at #13). I’m not a huge Rammstein fan, but the phenomenon around them is fascinating and their live shows look like something else.
