Metal By Numbers 12/11: Cattle Decapitation slaughter sales

Posted by on December 11, 2019

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
Compared to the last two months, this list of debuts looks rather small. But what it lacks in length it makes up for with Cattle Decapitation spearheading what will probably be the biggest debut of the month for metal. Is it any wonder that this is already cropping up on best of 2019 lists? Maybe you’ll even see it on a few of Metal Insider’s individual lists.
