Metal By Numbers 11/2: Korn don’t suffer on the charts

Posted by on November 2, 2016

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week. If this is truly a year where bands that got huge in the 90’s are making big comebacks (Green Day, Metallica), then Korn is the latest example of such a sentiment. They’ve always been […]

Metal By Numbers 5/21: Sales beyond the veil

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).

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.
