Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
It’s just one big week of debuts after another, and it doesn’t look like it’s stopping anytime soon. At The Gates and Five Finger Death Punch released albums last Friday among others, this week will see the return of Bleeding Through, and next week we’ll get the latest release from Ghost (who I’m seeing tonight for the third time, first time as headliner). It’s a good looking summer, that’s to be sure.
