Metal By Numbers 6/16: Rising nowhere

Posted by on June 16, 2021

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

This was another week heavy on the debuts (14 to be exact) and features some heavy hitters. Also, just a heads up, the quotation marks/apostrophe key on my laptop is broken, so if notice any missing apostrophes, that’s my excuse. I did quick scan and I think I’ve them all. Why is that key broken you ask? My cat trod over my keyboard and sat on it. Mind you, it’s not the first time this has happened. I’m sure those of you with pets, particularly cats, have had similar difficulties. But I’ve got it under control and I’ll be trying to keep her off my keyboard in futureeeeee——[[[[[[[[[[[lkkkkkkkkm,./.
