NEILSTEIN SOUNDSCAM: CRAP MUSIC FOR THE WIN
My usual source for Soundscan info is on vacation this week (asshole!), but thankfully the always-reliable Metal Insider is there for me with their weekly Metal by Numbers column. Rather than go through the whole chart since I don’t have it at my fingertips, let’s just focus on new releases that came out last week:
Soundscan Top 200
4 HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD – AMERICAN TRAGEDY
Last week: 66,000 (debut)
Is anyone really surprised at this number? I know this band has tons of fans, but man… ok, I guess I’m still kinda surprised. I was hoping this band’s 15 minutes would be over by now.
9 ASKING ALEXANDRIA – RECKLESS AND RELENTLESS
Last week: 31,240 (debut)
Hooray for generic metalcore still selling records!
BURZUM – FALLEN
Last week: 550 (debut)
Being tr00 isn’t about selling records anyway.
Back to our usual full-on Soundscam report next week.
