We’d like to start by saying…WOW…great work everybody!  When we decided to limit our 2nd annual Concept Album Contest to just metal concept albums we knew that it would be popular, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that we were expecting our fair share of schlock.  Well, we were not only pleasantly surprised, but downright thrilled by the quality of all of the submissions.  Clearly you all embraced this challenge and your hard work shows.  So thank you for making our job of narrowing it down to these 10 finalists that much harder!  We mean it!

Here are the 10 finalists we sent to Ed Repka to judge (in no particular order):



Dollhouse in Black

“I Am Zombie”


“Toxic Messiah”

Crimson Eye



“And So It Begins…”

Children of a Nuclear Winter

“Married To The Machine”

Vorpal Queen

“In The Chamber of the Vorpal Queen”



Vengeance Burns Eternal

“Wergeld: {At What Price, The Souls of Kinsmen Slain?}”

Jesus Wrench

“The American Way of War”

Good luck to everyone!

    What a fine collection of albums. I certainly have opinions about which ones I think are better…but I’m damn glad I’m not the one who has to make the final decision!
    Great work everyone!

    Very good selections chosen. It will be a close call, but I can’t wait to see who wins. I’m also glad one of my albums pulled through, so I’ll be rooting for it.

    GOOD LUCK to all

    Some of these (including my own, of course :p) I would actually like to see written and recorded…
