Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
Fourteen debuts are listed here today, and that’s just one week of the slew of albums you’ll be seeing on here in the month of June. Not only that, but we’re t-minus two days away from Warped Tour, which always causes certain albums to surge in sales. And I’m sure we’ll be seeing a Warped Tour sample compilation album sometime soon too.
