Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor has always had interesting album titles and this one is no exception. The only way it could be stranger is if the named their album after Elon Musk and Grimes’s baby (and no, I’m not going to actually look it up and learn how to pronounce it). It’s not a huge week for debuts, but there are a few albums that dropped off last week that have gotten big boosts back up. I’m guessing some of them are thanks to sales from Bandcamp Friday.
