Metal By Numbers 7/10: Moving futha up in the world

Posted by on July 10, 2019

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
 
No, that’s not a typo in the title. It’s the name of the top debut this week from the Danish/Norwegian/German folk group Heilung. Their music isn’t metal in the traditional sense, but fans of folk metal will probably dig it. We’ve also got new He Is Legend and a few other releases including a live album from a group featuring Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde, Tosin Abasi, and Nuno Bettencourt. I honestly didn’t know you could fit that many egos on stage and still have room for a rhythm section.
