    Here's an overview of Metallica's performance (starting with the most important one ):

    Top Album Sales Artists: 7

    Rock Albums Artists: 7
    Hardrock Albums Artists: 2 (Queen at number 1 - love them and their excellent first albums certainly had heavy rock elements, but not many people would perceive them as a hardrock act)

    Sales:
    The Black Album: 48 (last year at 44)
    Hardwired...: 69 (last year at 2)
    Master Of Puppets: 78

    SPS:
    The Black Album: 109 (last year at 95)
    Current Albums:
    Hardwired...: 70
    Catalog SPS:

    Their US indoor tour will start again next week until the beginning of February with gigs in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and Ohio (2x).
    Before this they will play the Chris Cornell tribute concert in LA next Wednesday.

    According to Buzzangle Metallica was the 4th best-selling album artist (i.e. pure sales) in the US in 2018, selling some 540000 copies.

    Looking at oldbloke's precious estimations we know that their US sales were quite a bit higher last year:

    The Black Album: 183k
    Hardwired...: 171k (mostly ticket bundle sales)
    Master Of Puppets: 109k
    ...And Justice For All: 98k
    Ride The Lightning: 73k

    So already 634k for these 5 albums.
    Adding the sales of their Garage Days EP re-issue (about 40k a few months ago), Kill 'em All (around 50k?) and the minor sales of Load and Reload (both regularly appearing in the lower ends of Buzzangle's Metal top 50), Garage Inc., S&M, St. Anger and Death Magnetic, their total US album sales were most likely somewhere in between 750k and 800k in 2018.

    Here's their weekly chart overview (and some year-end chart appearances):

    USA:
    Sales:
    The Black Album: 71 -> 54
    …And Justice For All: 97 (re-entry)
    SPS:
    The Black Album: 165 -> 144
    Catalog Sales:

    U.S. Vinyl Album Sales Grew 15% in 2018, Led by the Beatles, Pink Floyd, David Bowie & Panic! at the Disco
    1/12/2019 by Keith Caulfield

    Vinyl album sales in the U.S. hit their 13th consecutive year of growth, with 'Guardians' being the top-selling LP and "Yellow Submarine” the biggest vinyl single.

    Vinyl album sales continue to be a bright spot among an otherwise bleak album sales picture. 16.8 million vinyl albums were sold in 2018, according to Nielsen Music (up 14.6 percent) — marking the 13th consecutive year of growth for the format. 16.8 million is also a new yearly high for vinyl album sales since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991.

    Comparatively, overall album sales (vinyl LP, CD, digital, cassette, etc.) in 2018 fell 17.7 percent to 141 million.

    Vinyl LP sales accounted for 11.9 percent of all album sales in 2018 (16.8 million of 141 million). In 2017, the format comprised 6.5 percent of album sales.

    Nielsen Music’s 2018 tracking year ran from Dec. 29, 2017 through Jan. 3, 2019. Due to a quirk in the calendar, there were 53 weeks in 2018, instead of the usual 52. So, for 2018 volume comparisons to 2017, a corresponding 53-week period is used by Nielsen Music for 2017: Dec. 30, 2016 through Jan. 4, 2018. Numbers in this story are rounded.

    Perhaps not surprisingly, vinyl LPs were 19.1 percent of all physical album sales (CDs, LPs, cassettes, etc.) in 2018. That’s a new Nielsen-era record share for the once-dormant format, up from 14 percent in 2017.

    Vinyl’s growing share of the physical album market isn’t shocking, considering CD album sales continue to falter.

    In total, physical album sales equaled 88 million in 2018, down 15.8 percent. And of that sum, CD album sales were 70.7 million — down 20.9 percent.

    The CD format continues to be the leader for all album purchases, while the digital format is the runner-up with 53.4 million digital albums sold in 2018 (down 20.7 percent).

    TOP-SELLING VINYL ARTISTS: The top-selling vinyl albums artist in 2018 was the Beatles, with 321,000 copies sold of their catalog on vinyl. Their biggest seller was Abbey Road, which finishes the year as the No. 4 largest-seller, with 76,000 copies. The Fab Four also have two more titles among the year’s top 15-sellers: their self-titled (White Album) is No. 11 (56,000) and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is No. 13 (50,000).

    The top 10-biggest selling vinyl acts of the year are rounded out mostly by classic and veteran rock acts:

    1. The Beatles (321,000)
    2. Pink Floyd (177,000)
    3. David Bowie (150,000)
    4. Panic! at the Disco (148,000)
    5. Fleetwood Mac (139,000)
    6. Led Zeppelin (138,000)
    7. Michael Jackson (131,000)
    8. Jimi Hendrix (119,000)
    9. Metallica (116,000)
    10. Queen (113,000)

    U.S. Cassette Album Sales Grew 23% in 2018, Aided by Britney Spears, 'Guardians,' Twenty One Pilots & More
    1/17/2019 by Keith Caulfield

    Thanks to such acts as Britney Spears, Twenty One Pilots and Guns N’ Roses, along with soundtracks from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise -- which boasts the year’s top two sellers -- and Netflix’s Stranger Things series, cassette tape album sales in the U.S. grew by 23 percent in 2018.

    According to Nielsen Music, cassette album sales climbed from 178,000 in 2017 to 219,000 copies in 2018. While that’s a small number compared to the overall album market (141 million copies sold in 2018), that’s a sizable number for a once-dead format. In 2014, for example, cassette album sales numbered just 50,000. But, 20 years before that, back in 1994, when cassettes were still very much a hot-selling format, there were 246 million cassette albums sold that year, of an overall 615 million albums.

    Cassette album releases in 2018 are still a very niche offering, with most significant titles limited to specialty reissues and unique projects. Among the top 10 selling cassette albums (see list, below) were Twenty One Pilots’ new studio album, Trench, and a reissue of Britney Spears’ debut album, …Baby One More Time.

    Trench was issued on a yellow-colored cassette and sold 7,000 copies in 2018, finishing as the year’s No. 3 seller. The Trench cassette was released concurrently with the album on Oct. 5 on CD, vinyl LP and digital download formats.

    Spears’ …Baby One More Time sold 4,000 cassette copies and was the No. 5 biggest seller. It was reissued on cassette for its 20th anniversary, exclusive to Target stores, as a pink-colored cassette. Spears’ …Baby One More Time was originally released in January of 1999 on CD and cassette. Of the album’s 10.6 million copies sold to date, 1.49 million are on cassette. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and the set's title track became Spears' first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100.

    For the fourth year in a row, the year’s top-selling cassette album came from the Guardians of the Galaxy film series. The best-selling title in 2018 was the Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 soundtrack (24,000 sold). It was released in 2014 and served as the companion album to the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. It was also the top seller in 2015 and 2016. The cassette continues to do robust business, thanks to its strong link to the first film. The cassette is a replica of the oft-played mixtape seen in the movie, and the set’s music is heard throughout the film.

    In 2017, the movie’s sequel soundtrack took over as the year’s best-selling cassette album, as Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2: Awesome Mix Vol. 2 was tops.

    In 2018, Vol. 2 finished as the No. 2 seller (19,000). Another Guardians-related cassette, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Mix, Vol. 1, is the No. 6 seller of the year (3,000). Cosmic is the soundtrack to the first season of the animated Guardians of the Galaxy TV series.

    Other titles among the top 10 selling cassette albums of 2018: Guns N’ Roses' 30th reissue of their debut album, Appetite for Destruction (No. 7 with 3,000); Metallica’s reissue of The $5.98 EP: Garage Days Re-Revisited (No. 8; 3,000); Elvis Presley’s new inspirational compilation Where No One Stands Alone (No. 9; 2,000); and Wu-Tang Clan’s 25th-anniversary reissue of their debut set, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (No. 10; 2,000).

    In total for 2018, there were 28 albums that sold at least 1,000 copies on cassette -- up from just 17 in 2017. (Though, there were 25 titles that sold at least 1,000 in 2016.)
