Bloodbound Unholy CoverHow many of you Metal Rioters out there have gone to your local record store of choice and picked up a new metal album solely based on the art that graces its cover? Unfortunately, with the growth of iTunes and Pandora it seems easier and easier to overlook album cover art in general, but in the world of Heavy Metal we’re here to remind you that the art form is still alive and well!

Each Tuesday we will present to you the best album covers of the week and draw focus into what makes each cover so damn badass. Check out this week’s offering right here and vote on which cover YOU think should win “Cover Art of the Week”!

We’re back with some over-the-top covers, mixed with some beautiful compositions. Which one has the brains and brawn to take the crown this week? You be the judge!

What album cover kicks the most ass this week?

  • Morne - "Asylum"
  • Black Veil Brides - "Set The World On Fire"
  • Debauchery - "Germany's Next Death Metal"
  • A Pale Horse Named Death - "And Hell Will Follow Me"
  • Bloodbound - "Unholy Cross"
  • Alestorm - "Back Through Time"
  • Arkona - "Stenka Na Stenku"
