Metal By Numbers 7/29 & 8/5: The Acacia Strain don’t decay

Posted by on August 5, 2020

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
 
I was away last week, so this week we’re doing things a bit different. I’ve included the debut numbers that would have been posted last week in addition to the ones for this week. There’s some big releases in here, most prominently The Acacia Strain, who dropped a surprise album for Christmas last year, but are already back with a new one.
