2. BTBAM - Alaska, Last Week #2, Weeks on Chart 2

9. Biohazard - Means to an End, Last Week #9, Weeks on Chart 2
10. YOB - The Unreal Never Lived, Last Week #10, Weeks on Chart 2

As you can see Opeth is still holding strong among the top of the albums chart, a second straight week at #1 has Ghost Reveries looking great as their new album. Nothing new to the top 10 this week unfortunatly, they just shuffled around. There are however, some noteable new commers looking to enter next week, including God Forbids new effort, A Constitution of Reason, as well as A Dozen Furies - A Concept of Fire. Between the Buried and Me held strong at #2, but it looks like they may just be stuck peaking there. Hypocrisy was the big jumper this week comming from #8 to #3, and the bottom dweller of the week was Arch Enemy falling 2 spots to #5.

Top 10 Singles - (Last Week) (On Chart)

1. God Forbid - Chains of Humanity -- 1
2. Jacknife - Surrender Never -- 1
3. Matthew K Heafy - The End -- 1
4. Darkest Hour - This Will Outlive Us 9 2
5. Throwdown - We Will Rise -- 1
6. Byzantine - Taking Up Serpants -- 1
7. The Abscense - Necropolis 5 2
8. Every Time I Die - Guitarred and Feathered 3 2
9. BTBAM - Selkies -- 1
10. Soilent Green - Forgive and Regret 2 1


This singles chart jumps around alot more then the albums do, as of course its based on whats currently being played on the metal \m/ airwaves around the area. Only 4 songs remained on the chart this week, with alot of newcommers including God Forbids first single Chains of Humanity, which will see a video soon this week. Matthew K Heafy of Trivium had his RoadRunner all-star track all over the place and surprizingly was third most played this week in metal. Darkest Hour is still remaining strong and currently on the road everyday in support of their new album. Byzantines new album has been out a few weeks and is slowly gaining a big following, the album which carries the same name as the single can be heard all over metal satellite radios. Soilent Green is noticeable hanging on for the second week in a row, despite dropping 8 spots.

And thats all for this week in metal, keep the horns high \m/

I really like God Forbids new album, and anything Matt Heafy touches lately has been gold. Im surprized Hypocrisy is doing as well as they are.

Song is great, but I've only seen the video once so I'm not sure if I can really form an opinion yet...the song is pretty lengthy.
