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? I have found many a hidden gems and a few utter disappointments but there are few things greater in this world than gently cracking open the liner notes for the first time as the smell of ink and paper washes over you.

In the world of iTunes and Pandora, the art form that is the album cover is slowly dying. But we’re here to remind  you that in the world of heavy metal, the art of the album cover is alive and well! So each Tuesday we’ll present to you the best album covers of the week to declare what we all already know – Heavy Metal is art.

So welcome this week’s episode of: KICK ASS ALBUM COVERS OF THE WEEK!!! (insert blistering guitar shred here). We had an awesome showing last week and we would like to congratulate Otep on her most kick ass album cover with last week’s “ATAVIST”. To check out this week’s selections and vote, head on over here.
