Rob Zombie’s ‘Electric Warlock’ Album Debuts at No. 6 on Billboard 200
Rob Zombie has kept his impressive streak alive! The master entertainer and horror enthusiast has netted his sixth consecutive landing spot inside the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart with his newest record, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.
Securing his second highest chart position, Rob Zombie's latest debuted at No. 6, besting his previous two albums and falling just short of the No. 5 spot that was claimed by both Hellbilly Deluxe and Educated Horses. The streak for Zombie personally, extends even further out, dating back to his White Zombie days when the groove riders' Astro Creep: 2000 ascended to the No. 6 slot.
With streaming services now counting towards equivalent units sold between "track equivalent albums" and "streaming equivalent albums," Rob Zombie proved rock and metal fans are still among the most dedicated in all of music. Of the 41,000 units moved, 40,000 were pure album sales. By comparison, Billboard reports Drake's chart-topping Views saw 163,392 of his 852,000 units sold were driven from streaming — 0.024 percent for Rob Zombie against 0.192 percent for Drake.
Fans looking to catch Rob Zombie on tour can find dates here as the band are in the midst of a co-headlining run with hard rock heavyweights Disturbed through May 25. They'll be revving the touring engine again towards the end of July where they'll hit the road on another co-headlining tour, this time with Korn.
