Time has come and all the little metalheads have opened their respective holiday boxes under their non-denominational tidings, with each headbanger giving thanks for the one thing that truly matters: Cover Art! Without cover art, we’d have no idea which album to buy, which album to avoid, and which album to try on a whim.
MetalRiot always brings the best in cover art to the fans and it is now time to declare the best cover art for all of 2011. We had some great picks this year, including some that garnered over 300 votes during their week-long reign as champs. We’ve put together the biggest winners from this year and they run the gamut from the extreme and wacky, to nude and rude. Where ever your metal heart lies, choose wisely and help make your pick the Cover Art of the Year!

Happy New Year Edit:
In an insanely close race, almost 4,000 metal heads picked their choice for Cover Art of the Year. In the end, only eight votes separated first place from second.
