Metallica Outsold Glasvegas' Album By 20,000 Copies
September 15, 2008
Metallica's 'Death Magnetic' outsold Glasvegas' self-titled debut album by nearly 20,000 copies to get to number one, new sales figures show.
Despite only officially going on sale on Friday, the American metal band's album topped the UK charts, selling 75,164 copies compared to Glasvegas' 56,387.
Glasvegas' much-hyped effort had been the bookies favourite to secure the top spot but suffered when Vertigo dropped the sales embargo on Metallica's album.
It's understood that the record label were forced to respond after a number of stores began selling 'Death Magnetic' early.
