Cover Art Battle: Metal Riot’s Cover Art of the Year (We Have A Winner!)

Posted by jessepac on Tuesday, December 27, 2011 at 12:48 PM (PST)

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!

Click here and vote for your favorite album cover 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.

This year’s cover art of the year is…..Breathe In Life by Betraying The Martyrs. Congratulations!

How 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!

Cover Art Tuesday: Megadeth vs The World Edition

This week, we have Megadeth releasing their thirteenth album, the name of which escapes me right now, up against a few Century Media artists in Vallenfyre and Krisiun. But leave it to Steel Panther to use some T&A (well, T&B…you’ll see) to try and steal some votes.
