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.
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.
