Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
Man, I remember a mere a few weeks ago I was breezing through this column. Now so many albums have been added. Either that or I’m just slow and haven’t had enough caffeine. Either way, got a good list of new stuff and a few albums that have popped up again after an absence (more Behemoth anyone?). I went ahead and decided to give the new Týr a listen as I’ve only listened to one or two songs of theirs before and it’s pretty good so far. Oh, and the new Amon Amarth rips. So I guess I’m just all Nordic up in here today.
