Metal By Numbers 8/29: Doro debuts on the charts

Posted by on August 29, 2018

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

It’s been six years since Doro’s last studio album, so she decided to come back full force with a double album. You really got to hand it to Doro for sticking it out in the metal scene for nearly 40 years. Metal had admittedly been a male dominated scene, so much so that the term “female fronted metal” is still lobbed around as subgenre every now and again. Thankfully, that label seems to be tapering off for the most part now that women have become more visible in the metal scene. Doro is one of the people that made that happen. I mean, metal was still so young when the 1980’s came around, but Doro was right up there leaving her mark alongside the giants that you all know and love. There’s a few other debuts that came along for the ride as you’ll see below.
