Metal By Numbers 5/26: I can see for Myles

Posted by on May 26, 2021

Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.

This week presents quite the variety of debuts. Myles Kennedy was always going to be the top debut, but then you have everything from a Michael Sweet/Tracii Guns supergroup, a Charlie Benante covers album, an album from a fictional band, and one album with a giant angry wall for the cover art. And Gojira is still in the top 25 albums!
