Megadeth debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart, dated September 17, with their new album, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!.

According to Billboard, Megadeth notches its eighth Top 10 with the #3 debut of The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!. The set launches with nearly 48,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, album sales comprise 45,000, SEA units comprise 3,000 (equaling 3.6 million on-demand streams of the set’s songs) and TEA units comprise a neglible sum.

Megadeth scored its first top 10 on the Billboard 200 a little more than 30 years ago, when Countdown To Extinction debuted and peaked at #2 on the August 1, 1992-dated chart. The act has since visited the top 10 with Youthanasia (#4, 1994), Cryptic Writings (#10, 1997), United Abominations (#8, 2007), Endgame (#9, 2009), Super Collider (#6, 2013), Dystopia (#3, 2016) and The Sick, the Dying… And The Dead!

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the US based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new chart will be posted in full on Billboard‘s website on Tuesday (September 13).
