Only Metallica and Dave Matthews Band have previously achieved the chart feat.

Immortalized, the band's first album since ending an 18-month hiatus, opens with 98,000 equivalent album sales, including 93,000 pure album sales, and topples Luke Bryan's Kill the Lights, which debuted at number one last week (23Aug15).

Dr. Dre's Compton stays put at three, while country singer Kip Moore debuts at four with Wild Ones, and Ed Sheeran's X rounds out the new top five.
