Released worldwide in July 2010, Nightmare earned Avenged Sevenfold its highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 1 and topped Billboard’s Rock, Hard Rock, and Digital charts. The title track was the most played song at Media Base Active Rock for 2010.

Los Angeles’ Hollywood Undead released their second album American Tragedy in April, which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and No. 1 on the Hard Rock Albums chart.

Britain’s Asking Alexandria's sophomore full-length album release, Reckless and Relentless, debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard Top 200. The band has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and appeared on the cover of AP and Guitar World.

Hollywood’s Black Veil Brides hit No. 1 on the Billboard Independent Albums with their 2010 debut album We Stitch These Wounds, followed by their second album, Set The World ON Fire, which peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
