Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
Arch Enemy have cracked Billboard’s top 20, and that’s a good thing. Seeing metal bands reach high spots on the charts it always nice to see, especially when it’s a band that’s been around a long time. That’s 21 years in the case of Arch Enemy. What’s more, this comes two albums after the departure of renowned vocalist Angela Gossow who helped the band to hit their stride. Oh, and having Jeff Loomis in your band doesn’t hurt either. On another note, I’ll be gone for the next two weeks, so see you all in October.
