This Week In Metal - August 24th, 2006

A third week, and to my surprise Slayer isn't number 1. Strapping Young Lad keeps the #1 spot for the second straight week. Meanwhile Slayer is at their heels and I would bet good money they takeover the top spot next week. Hatebreed's new album Supremecy could be the only thing that comes inbetween all of that but I highly doubt it. All That Remains holds strong as one of 4 bands that have stayed in the top 10 since TWIM was brought back. The second biggest highlight of the chart is the fact that All Shall Perish has broken thru and taken a spot inside the top 10. I've been a fan of these boys for a while and its amazing to see their name share spots with the likes of Shadows Fall and Unearth. And now for the chart courtesy of CMJ :
|1||1||Strapping Young Lad||The New Black||3||1|
|4||2||All That Remains||The Fall of Ideals||3||2|
|5||7||Unearth||III: The Eyes of Fire||2||5|
|7||3||Shadows Fall||Fallout From the War||3||1|
|9||4||Between the Buried and Me||The Anatomy Of||3||4|
|10||*||All Shall Perish||The Price Of Exsistance||1||10|
And now for the tunes, with a drastic change in this weeks chart. Unearth jumps from seven to first, while Slayer's Cult drops from first to tenth. Only six songs stayed on the chart, while we had four really strong debuts from great bands. Hatebreed, Mastodon and the new ATR single. Not to mention the ever-growing popularity of Human Abstract debuts. The singles chart is always shaky as the seeming flavor of the week is always ahead here, and now for the music, courtesy of MusicMatch:
|1||7||Unearth||The Glorious Nightmare||2||1|
|2||*||The Human Abstract||Crossing The Rubicon||1||2|
|4||*||Mastodon||The Wolf Is Loose||1||4|
|6||2||Lamb of God||Redneck||3||2|
|7||*||All That Remains||This Calling||1||7|
|8||10||Strapping Young Lad||You Suck||2||8|
|9||3||Shadows Fall||Will To Rebuild||3||1|
