VII: Sturm Und Drang, the seventh full-length album from Virginia metal band Lamb of God, released last week via Epic Records, has debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart. Selling roughly 47,000 copies in its first week of release in the United States, the album also landed at #2 on the U.S. Top Current Albums chart and #1 on the Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts.

By comparison, the band's 2012 album Resolution sold 52,000 copies in its first week, also debuting at #3 on the Billboard 200. Meanwhile, Wrath (2009) landed at #2 on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 68,000.

This is Lamb of God's lowest first-week sales total since 2004's Ashes of the Wake, which sold 35,000 units in its opening week.
