Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
I had to do a quick search to check if I already made a “The Stars and Stripes Forever” joke in a previous edition of MBN. And I did. It was just last year as a matter of fact. So I went with a vampire related title instead because of this week’s top debut. It’s fine, I’m not feeling particularly patriotic anyway. I’m in the kind of mood where I’d rather blast Sunn O))) at a BBQ and watch people react miserably to it. But, hey, Happy 4th and whatever.
