Slipknot Notches Second-Straight Number-One Album on “Billboard” 200

All Hope Is Gone also scored the top spot on the chart in its first week back in 2008, making .5: The Gray Chapter Slipknot's second-straight number-one album.

Slipknot now has four straight top-ten appearances on the Billboard 200, going back their 2001 sophomore album, Iowa.

The band is currently making their way through North America alongside Korn on their aptly named "Prepare for Hell" tour, which wraps up December 7 with a stop in Lowell, Massachusetts.
