If you’re a regular reader of Metal Insider (which come on now, you should be), you’re likely familiar with “Metal by Numbers,” a weekly look at album sales for hard rock and metal albums. Streaming has changed the game, so to speak, with numbers decreasing almost weekly. In a week like this one where the […]

Rob Zombie, Bring Me The Horizon, Black Veil Brides among AP Music Awards winners

Posted by on July 23, 2015

In 2014, Alternative Press, the Cleveland music magazine celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, held their first annual music awards show.

Posted by on May 21, 2015

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. The debuts are a bit bare bones this week (actually the charts are pretty small in general).

Metal By Numbers 5/7: Meanwhile on the charts…

Posted by on May 7, 2015

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. We like to think we know our audience here at Metal Insider. As such, I expect we’ll get more than a few cries of disdain and objection when the masses discover that we have, […]

Posted by on April 30, 2015

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. Oddly, we have more debuts this week than last week’s post-Record Store Day charts. Granted, not all of these releases were as  highly anticipated as a Metallica demo, but still a good week for […]
