Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
I certainly wasn’t expecting to be writing about a new AC/DC album at some point in this year, but I guess you can’t say everything about 2020 is bad. That said, tomorrow is sure to be one of the strangest Thanksgivings in recent memory. I hope you’re able to make the most of it as safely as responsibly as possible. Maybe put on some AC/DC while doing it.
