Kanye West, Metallica top local sellers this week

With all the hype surrounding Kanye West's latest effort, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, it's not surprising that disc, released last week on Def Jam, debuted at number one at Independent Records and Twist & Shout. But West didn't make the top ten over Albums on the Hill, where Metallica's Live at Grimey's , a special Record Store Day EP, came in at the top. See the full breakdown after the jump.
