THIS WEEK IN SOUNDSCAN: 10 YEARS, FILTER, ARSIS, WARREL DANE AND MORE

90

So I am officially boycotting Linkin Park and Nickelback when it comes to these Soundscan reports, until the day those two records drop off the charts. That will be a momentous day indeed.

ANYWAY, debuts from 10 Years and Filter had pretty good first weeks (by today’s standards), as did Iron Maiden’s latest Best-Of compilation. Dokken’s new record also inched into the Top 200 (!) and Emmure’s Victory Records debut performed respectably as well.

Also, new this week, I’m including notable metal releases from the Top New Artists chart, including Arsis, Warrel Dane, Russian Circles and more.

#12 10 YEARS – DIVISION
This Week: 27,981 (Debut)

#31 KID ROCK – ROCK N ROLL JESUS
This Week: 15,092
Cume: 906,851

#42 FILTER – ANTHEMS FOR THE DAMNED
This Week: 12,611 (Debut)

Not bad for an indie label release. Still, Patrick’s gotta be disappointed at how times have changed.

#59 IRON MAIDEN – SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME: BEST OF 1980-1989
This Week: 10,995
Cume: 11,119

I guess I was wrong about everyone already having these tracks. Proof that you can always sell greatest hits packages to old fogies with money.
