Metallica’s new album “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” attracts great attention all over the world. This interest is also reflected in the sales figures too. The band that streamed the whole album for free on the internet, did not disappoint during sales. It’s amazing!

According to “Thank You” post on Metallica’s website, the album ranks #1 in 57 countries all over the world. In addition, “Hardwired… To Self-destruct” is on the Top 3 list in 75 countries and Top 5 in 105 countries.


Currently there are 197 countries in the world. So apparently, Metallica is at the top of the music lists of more than half of the world.

We will soon find out how this hilarious data will be reflected in sales figures. As of the first week, the band aims to sell over 250,000 albums. We will see if they can keep this goal.
