SOUNDSCAN WEEK: DEATH, TAXES AND TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA

50

Says Metal Insider’s Bram Teitelman in his weekly Soundscan roundup, “There are only a few things that are certain: death, taxes, and a TSO album every other Christmas or so.” And so, as the holiday season fast approaches, last week saw strong sales from TSO’s latest amongst a bunch of greatest hits collections,  boxsets and various other re-packagings… de rigeur for this time of year.

Not a lot of metal made this week’s charts, but the latest releases from Alice in Chains, Slayer, Dethklok and others continued to sell well. Don’t expect much in the way of big metal releases between now and the end of year (except, of course, for The Binary Code’s Suspension of Disbelief which is going to obliterate every sales record in the history of EVER), so this column may go dormant for a little while.

Check out last week’s complete sales run-down at Metal Insider.
