The title cut leads at No. 3.

For the first time in the brief four-month history of Billboard's Hot Hard Rock Songs chart, an entire album infuses the 25-position list.

Deftones' Ohms, the ninth LP by the band, debuts at No. 1 on Hard Rock Albums, and each of its 10 tracks reach the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Hard Hock Songs survey, both dated Oct. 10.

Ohms bows with 49,000 equivalent album units, with 43,000 via album sales, in the week ending Oct. 1, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Deftones add their second Hard Rock Albums leader, after one-week ruler Gore in April 2016. Concurrently, the new release starts at No. 2 on Top Rock Albums, tying Gore and 2010's Diamond Eyes for the band's personal best. It also starts at No. 3 on Alternative Albums and No. 5 on the all-format Billboard 200, where it's Deftones' sixth top 10.

The Ohms title-track lead single paces Deftones' Hot Hard Rock Songs onslaught, jumping 6-3. "Genesis" follows at No. 5 and the album's top debut, "Ceremony," bows at No. 9.

With 10 entries simultaneously on Hot Hard Rock Songs, Deftones surpass Lamb of God's four songs on the July 4 ranking for the most in a week so far. Deftones' 10 entries are also the most total since the chart began in June; Lamb of God follows with five, followed by Falling in Reverse with four.

"Ohms" concurrently reaches a new No. 6 high on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart and bullets at its No. 22 best on the all-rock-format, audience-based Rock Airplay ranking, up 8% to 2.1 million impressions. The song's radio audience is also aided by building alternative airplay.
