Posted by on June 27, 2012

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. That’s it – we’ve reached the end of the internet. When these two screamo, rapist, dance/techno idiots can have 10,000 14 year-olds waste their allowance money on this terrible music, something’s wrong. The band […]

Metal By Numbers 6/20: Big Time Rush

Posted by on June 20, 2012

Five years ago, the last Rush album, Snakes & Arrows, sold 93,000 copies. That’s why it’s even more impressive that in 2012, their new album has sold over 100,000 copies, matching the #2 peak that they reached back in 1993 with Counterparts. Is rock alive?

New & Noteworthy, November 9th – Hear Me Now

Posted by on November 9, 2010

We are halfway through autumn, mere weeks away from the holiday season, and the Christmas music is already starting to play in some stores.
