DISTURBED landed its fifth No. 1 album on The Billboard 200 chart with its latest effort, “Immortalized”.
The new disc opened with 98,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending August 27, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 93,000 were pure album sales.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
DISTURBED is only the third group to score five consecutive No. 1-debuting studio albums. They join METALLICA (five No. 1-debuting studio sets between 1991-2008) and DAVE MATTHEWS BAND (six; 1998-2012).
“Immortalized” is DISTURBED’s first studio set since 2010’s “Asylum”, which opened atop The Billboard 200 with 179,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen Music. The act previously led the list with “Indestructible” (released in 2008), “Ten Thousand Fists” (2005) and “Believe” (2002).
The only DISTURBED album to miss the top position was the band’s debut, “The Sickness”, which peaked at No. 29 in 2000.
Rob Zombie’s new album, “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser”, will be released on April 29 via UMe/T-Boy Records. The CD was produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris and features Zombie alongside guitarist John 5, bassist Piggy D and drummer Ginger Fish.
Zombie told Loudwire that the follow-up to 2013’s “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor” was recorded over the course of a year, with the band working for a few weeks, taking a break for a few months, then coming back. He said, “We were living with it for a long time, and it really — I think it made the record so much better.”
