NEILSTEIN SOUNDSCAM: IN THIS FACELESS MOMENT
In This Moment sold a shitload of records last week, shocker of all shockers. So did The Faceless, while Korpiklaani notsomuch. Those and more, after the jump:
1 IN THIS MOMENT – BLOOD
Last week: 20,385 (debut)
Century’s bottom line is clearly being gutted by their recent allegiance with Spotify. Not.
3 FACELESS – AUTOTHEISM
Last week: 7,570 (debut)
Almost the exact same number Veil of Maya’s recent release sold first week, and about 4k less than Periphery. Yeah, I’d say Sumerian’s still got the tech-metal market cornered, even if most of their Benjamins come from Asking Alexandria these days. And holyshityouguys, have you listened to this album yet? It’s incredible, srsly.
4 VAI*STEVE – STORY OF LIGHT
Last week: 5,539 (debut)
Didn’t even know Vai had a new one.
8 TESTAMENT – DARK ROOTS OF EARTH
Last week: 4,174
Cume: 31, 288
Wow, this record is, like, doing really well and stuff.
13 FOZZY – SIN & BONES
Last week: 3,400 (debut)
20 TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION – PEACEMAKER
Last week: 2,476 (debut)
49 BLACK LIGHT BURNS – MOMENT YOU REALIZE YOU’RE GOIN
Last week: 912 (debut)
65 ADRENALINE MOB – OMERTA
Last week: 698
Not sure what’s responsible for the 142% spike; was there a sale or something? Anyway, 20k won’t be too shabby for this record when all is said and done.
76 KORPIKLAANI – MANALA
Last week: 566 (debut)
This is exactly the number of people I would expect to be interested in purchasing a Korpiklaani record first week.
98 LOUDNESS – EVE TO DAWN
Last week: 379 (debut)
And this is exactly the number of people I would expect to be interested in purchasing a Loudness record first week. Has anyone out there listened to this yet? Is it good?
