Thy Art Is Murder album fails to chart on Billboard 200

Thursday, August 8, 2019 7:51 PM PT


Human Target, the new album from Australian deathcore exports Thy Art Is Murder, sold roughly 2,900 copies in its first week of release in the United States. While the band's two previous albums debuted in the Top 100 on the Billboard 200 chart, Human Target did not sell enough to make the cut. The album did land at No. 32 on the Top Current Albums chart, No. 24 on the Hard Rock Albums chart, and No. 11 on the Independent Albums chart.

Thy Art Is Murder's last album, Dear Desolation (2017), sold 6,500 copies in its first week and debuted at No. 95 on the Billboard 200. Going back further, 2015's Holy War bowed at No. 82 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 7,400.

Album was so boring no wonder. Deathcore itself is dead too so, that doesn't help.
I wonder if CARNIFEX new album will chart. Maybe barely.

Numbers don't lie, deathcore is on the decline. Can't say I'm very upset about it.

They're playing the New Haven CANNIBAL CORPSE show. Are they worth busting my ass at work to get out on time to see them? Prob 45 min commute. fcking Yalies.

Oh well. Singer will quit the band again. And another article/post will appear complaining about how it's not fair they can't make a living wage playing in a deathcore band. Boo Hoo (wiping away my Aussie tears while typing this).

The words "Thy Art Is Murder" and "fail" seem to end up in the same headlines quite often.

bought mine. i can understand the american market may have been butthurt by their music video. they should've just come out with a "make deathcore great again" and it would've got over better.
