The band & Linkin Park each have six leaders since the chart's 2007 inception.

Five Finger Death Punch nets its record-tying sixth No. 1 on Billboard's Hard Rock Albums chart, as F8 bows atop the March 14-dated survey.

The set starts with 55,000 equivalent album units earned in its first week, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

With six No. 1s on Hard Rock Albums, all in a row, the heavy metal act ties Linkin Park for the most leaders in the history of the survey, which dates to 2007. Each of FFDP's LPs have debuted at No. 1 since 2013, beginning with The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell: Volume 1 that August; the streak also includes a best-of package, A Decade of Destruction, that first led in December 2017.

F8 also debuts at No. 2 on Top Rock Albums, becoming Five Finger Death Punch's seventh straight set to reach the tally's top two (four of which have hit No. 1). On the all-format Billboard 200, the album enters at No. 8 as the band's seventh top 10.

Concurrently, the act claims nine of the 50 positions on the streaming-, sales- and airplay-based Hot Rock Songs list, paced by lead single "Inside Out," which zooms 22-3 as the tally's Greatest Gainer in streaming (1.8 U.S. streams, up 139%) and sales (5,000 sold, up 492%). The band also nabs the chart's Hot Shot Debut: "A Little Bit Off," at No. 8.

F8 has already found success at radio, with "Inside Out" ruling Mainstream Rock Songs for four weeks beginning in February.
