As awesome as it was for August Burns Red to debut at #9 on the Billboard 200, I'm pretty disappointed that they only sold 26K, I was hoping for double that. Also, I'm extremely disappointed that one person bought the new Attila album...I mean, how gimmicky can you be? Inverted crosses will only bring you success for a short time.

Seeing Attilla sell that many copies is just sad. People actually like that crap? I shouldn't be surprised, people do like Emmure after all.

1. Huge congrats to Attila. They've been busting their asses for a long time now, so this debut is well deserved.

2. I really thought Hawthorne Heights would debut in the top 20.

3. 26,000 people bought the new Falling in Reverse? Lol.

Zero landed at no. 50 on the Billboard 200, which is the same position Skeletons grabbed after its first week. I'm sure that record sold over 10k, though. The figures for this one are really sad. Four thousand units? I don't want to see these guys break up in the near future because it's financially unreasonable to stay a full-time band.

I thought FTSK was bigger? I guess sophomore slump got the best of them. Shitty, because the new record has some jams on it. Also, congrats to 21P.
