In This Moment And Skillet Awarded New Gold/Platinum Certifications In The United States


Alternative metal stars In This Moment have racked up another two gold singles in the United States. This time around the honor falls upon a pair of tracks from the group’s 2017 album “Ritual“. Both “Black Wedding“, which features  Judas Priest‘s Rob Halford, and “Roots“, have newly been certified gold by the RIAA.

Roots” was launched as the second single from “Ritual“, with “Black Wedding” emerging as the fourth and final single from it in the spring of 2018.

Also freshly receiving new hardware in the relatively heavier music world is Skillet, whose 2016 single “The Resistance” has newly been certified platinum as well. All of the certifications mentioned above were issued yesterday, May 08th.

A platinum album/single in the United States represents 1,000,000 units, while gold signifies 500,000 units. Outside of traditional physical/digital sales, the certifications factor in digital streams/downloads with 10 permanent track downloads counting as 1 unit and 1500 on-demand audio/video streams from a particular album also counting as as a unit.
