Non-debut albums:
Alice in Chains/3rd

Metallica/5th

Beyonce/5th

Heart/8th

9th..OK, I think this is where you're looking for The Beatles. HOWEVER, you specified above U.S. RELEASE. If we are talking the ORIGINAL U.S. releases, then The White Album is their 14th release (15 if you count The Beatles Story...and those are just the Capitol releases, not counting Introducing The Beatles on Vee Jay), A couple of decades ago back the albums were reconfigured here in the U.S. to conform to the universal standard that the albums were released in England and elsewhee...in other words, the way the Beatles intended. The only difference being Magical Mystery Tour, which originally was just an extended play rather than a full album, but now is the full length album as it was released in the U.S. Under that criteria, The Beatles would indeed be their 9th album.

Genesis/12th


SUPER BONUS:

The Beatles is known as The White Album
Metallica is known as The Black Album
