Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
Welcome back, missed you all last week. While this week’s edition of MBN doesn’t features the chart topping debuts that occurred last week, the wealth of material release should certainly not go unnoticed. My personal tip of the hat goes to Paradise Lost’s Medusa. Of course, with three and a half months left to go in 2017, a cavalcade of albums will soon be gracing this column. I still keep track of what’s coming via this Wikipedia page, though new stuff is being added all the time as more bands announce album releases.
Queens Of The Stone Age, Villains (Matador Records)
This debuted last week at #3 on the Billboard and has sold 81,000 so far.
Greta Van Fleet, Black Smoke Rising EP (Republic)
This is nearing 20,000 sold.
Around 55,000 sold.
Around 34,000 sold.

Around 23,000 sold.
