Im aware of the fact that its a little late, and pushed closely together with TWIM for 9-8-06 but nonetheless I would hate to see you guys miss out on a week of news. So without further ado the records chart courtesy of CMJ :
|3||1||SYL||The New Black||4||1|
|4||4||All That Remains||The Fall of Ideals||4||2|
|5||6||The Human Abstract||Nocturne||3||5|
|6||-||Bury Your Dead||Beauty & The Breakdown||2||6|
|8||5||Unearth||III: The Eyes Of Fire||3||5|
|10||7||Shadows Fall||Fallout From The War||4||1|
Hatebreed becomes our third #1 ever, beyond Shadows Fall and SYL. It is amazing for them as a band to completly jump Slayer. All That Remains maybe just hitting stride in their young career, the success of this album and the sales and touring they are doing are pushing them over the top of their genre. Bury Your Dead returns to the chart with strong sales following a bouncey chart release. And the boys from Shadows Fall look like their run of 4 weeks in the chart might end as they slip to the #10 slot.
Onto the singles, courtesy of MusicMatch:
|2||1||Unearth||The Glorious Nightmare||3||1|
|4||3||The Human Abstract||Crossing the Rubicon||2||2|
|5||4||Mastodon||The Wolf Is Loose||2||4|
|6||9||Shadows Fall||Will To Rebuild||4||1|
|8||6||Lamb of God||Redneck||4||2|
|9||7||All That Remains||This Calling||2||7|
Not much change to the charts other then that of Stone Sour resurging to the #1 slot after never reaching it within the first four weeks. Between The Buried and Me makes a debut with Malpractice and the bottom of the chart holds strong with Slayer staying in the #10 slot. All four #1's in the charts 4 weeks remain, including the only 2 songs to be on all 4 weeks.
HATEBREED's video for the song "Defeatist" has been posted online at this location. The clip was shot on July 31 in Naugatuck, Connecticut in an abandoned factory which was also used by Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise for the end sequence of the film "War of the Worlds" and was helmed by acclaimed director Dale "Rage" Resteghini (TRIVIUM, MUDVAYNE, SHADOWS FALL, MADBALL).
As previously reported, a special "Headbanger's Ball" episode dedicated to HATEBREED will air this Saturday, September 2 on MTV2. Also scheduled to air immediately following "Headbanger's Ball" is a "Making of the Video" episode dedicated to HATEBREED's "Defeatist" clip.
