Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
The Devil Wears Prada have been around for over 15, which is about as long as both the book and film of the same name. Yet I never thought to ask myself what the actual overlap is between people who listen to the band and people who have seen the film. I guess you have to ask yourself what’s more likely: is your typical metalcore fan more likely to go watch the movie or would a casual viewer of comedies/chick flicks be willing to try heavy music? Speaking personally, I haven’t listened to too much of the band outside of their bigger songs, but I’ve seen the movie a few times. Anyway, hope you all enjoyed the weekend.
