Following in the wake of Lamb Of God's chart-topping album release last month, heavy metal is dominating the music scene again as Slayer's "Repentless" becomes the #2 selling album in the world according to the United World Chart, Media Traffic's amalgamation of official album sales charts from dozens of principal countries around the world.
The album scored a Top 10 debut in 25 countries, Top 5 in 14 countries, and made career-highest debuts in the United States, the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and New Zealand.
"Repentless," the first music video for the album, has now amassed more views in less than two weeks than any of the band's previous music videos during the same time frame - more than four-million views at social media.
