Burn The Priest covers album debuts in Top 125

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 1:11 PM PT


To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Lamb Of God recently revived their original moniker, Burn The Priest, to release a new covers album titled Legion: XX. In its first week of release, the record sold roughly 6,700 copies in the United States, landing at No. 107 on the Billboard 200. Meanwhile, Legion: XX also debuted at No. 20 on the Top Album Sales chart and No. 6 on the Hard Rock Albums chart.

It's difficult to compare this showing with that of Lamb Of God's previous album, VII: Sturm Und Drang, which sold 47,000 copies in its first week back in 2015. An album of covers released under a lesser-known band name isn't exactly a recipe for success.

Ugh, only to fill Randy's giant, pretentious head once again. He invented the bad Brian's with JJ cromag and also surfing. Get bent, helmet.

d. randall blythe... he loves to talk about how he was into all this hardcore... funny, it never showed up on this album. ok, agnostic front... which track? really? anything off of 1984's victim in pain and i would believe you were a "hardcore kid". d. randall... pretentious little arrogant prick.
