Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
So, how’s everyone doing? It’s certainly been a strange and uncertain time on planet Earth lately. I know you none of you read this column because you want to hear about current events unless its metal related, but given the numerous tour cancellations
and bands putting on livestreams
as replacements, it’s all pretty hard to ignore. I hope that wherever you are and however you’re dealing with the pandemic you can find time in your day to relax and put on your favorite music. Stay safe, people.
