There's also Top Ten placings for Slipknot, Staind and Linkin Park as the metal dominations strengthens its grip...


OF A DOWN are set to debut at Number One on the US Billboard Top 100 chart

(week ending September 22) with their second album ‘TOXICITY’.

The record sold 222,000 copies last week, the only high new entry on the

chart. It’s knocked the late R&B star Aaliyah

from first into third place with her eponymous album. However, due to the

emergency situation in New York, incorrect figures were compiled

and the album was initially posted at Number Two behind Alicia Keys’

‘Songs In A Minor’. The sales better the 3,000 that System

Of A Down shifted in the first week with their 1998 self-titled debut album.

Slipknot, with whom System

Of A Down will head out on the postponed ‘Pledge Of

Allegiance’ tour in October, fell from Three to 12 with their second

album ‘Iowa’. – Staind

and Linkin

Park climb back into the Top Ten, jumping from 13 to Six and 11 to Seven
