Dave has chosen the Top 11 and here they are!!




Note: Due to an error, one of the finalist images was missed in the last release.  As we already announced a 'top 10', we have decided to deviate from the traditional and make it a 'top 11'.  We apologize for the confusion.

I am sorry but I thought there were waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyy yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better pics than the ones that were picked. I say congrats to the ones who did not win. There was some of the most inspirational work entered in this contest and none of it was recognized. Oh well dont give up everybody! Dave, I love you but I dont agree with you on this one.

y'know I went through the entire gallery yesterday, and I gotta say, I would choose very differently. There is one up there I would certainly pick (2nd row, on the farthest right). That one is super tough. It just goes to show how subjective this all is. I think everyone who made one should get a "buy-on-get-one-free ticket to a show". Bwa ha ha.

Am lovin number 5 and the last three.. i wouldnt want it to stray from the too far conventional vic... he's on all the album covers.. it'd be the end of an era to go for total change.
I loooooooove Megadeth tho.. i saw them in london february 2005.. my ears rang for 2 weeks after.. it so effing rocked :D x

Geez, cant people ever just be happy for the finalists these days? Everythings about right or wrong. I dont personally listen to Megadeath - I'm more of a Metallica person, but still, just be happy for the finalists instead of bitching about it.

Good job to the finalists!

I think if I saw anyone of those covers on a cd case in a music store I would have to pause and pick that cd up being a fan of 80's metal cover art. I find quite of few of these entries quite remind me of old Megadeath cover art. Some of them I like the newer modern look to em as well. I think the members of Megadeath would be quite pleased to have anyone of them featured.
:headbang:
Cudos to everyone who was brave enough to put their work out there.

When is the Iron Maiden contest?
Eddie kicks the Megadeath guyz butt any day of the week.
O.F.T.

And considering Metallica let Dave go and he was still able to come back with a band of his own and still made it big is a testament to his own greatness. Considering Metallica turn into a bunch of money grubbin greedy sellout posers. Lars sucks #*%$@^!!!!! Their last good album was Master of Puppets after that I can't tell you how many times I felt completely ripped off by the trash those retreads put out. At least Dave and Megadeth stayed consistant with their sound. Those hosers ain't fit to care for Dave's lawn.

sentrixx don't talk crap about megadeth! mustaine did a great job when he was playing in metallica.
both bands are great in there own way.

the third one on the first line looks very good ;)
but to creepy for a megadeth album cover

fucking all grow up.... Megadeth was the leftovers of metallica, and Dave has always walked in their shadow - although i must admit he has done well for an alcoholic.

Great concepts one and all. :D Congrats to the 11 that were chosen! :D Ignore the negativity in this thread. People all have different ideas of what's a good artistic idea and obviously Dave was impressed with what he saw in that it meshed with the direction Megadeth is going for the next album. I'm stoked to see Megadeth back! :excited:

(the number of 'fans' spelling Megadeth wrong makes me sad. :cries: )

Either way, I'm excited that they're still rockin' out after all these years :) :headbang:!

I think everyone is being really hard on the top choices.
We should take into consideration that even though these may not be YOUR first choice.
It's NOT YOUR BAND PEOPLE.
Stop being so negative. It's discouraging for the artists that are featured and totally unfair.
They didn't ASK to be picked. And how would YOU feel if you saw a hundred "Wow these suck" comments on YOUR work???

Choose your words wisely folks. Please.
You have a right to express yourself, but have some compassion for christ's sake.

I think people are viewing this entire promotion all wrong :no:
It's a shame. It was suppose to be exciting and fun.
Now it's just discouraging (for the top picks) and people are viewing the ideas behind it as a cheesy promo.
:shrug: I enjoyed it.
I had fun entering, viewing and seeing the result.

It's a shame people don't lighten up around here.

None of the ones I liked were picked; too bad, they were more original than these. But you have to admit that each deviation above took a lot of work. :nod:
I would pick the 8th or the 10th as a winner.
Goo luck to all 11 contestants. :)

I'm dissapointed a little bit.... I consider that there are just 2 facelifts, or re designs that really deserve to win (... I'm not saying the 9 left are crap, those are great artworks, but not what I consider a face lift) I saw many other designs that were great, many designs that were able to be a cd cover for megadeth... but anyway... we are not dave, he is the god of heavy metal.... the god knows what to do....



I made a design.... if you have time to check it, it will be a honor..... and please leave some comments :D

To all the people saying these aren't "metal enough" or "megadeth enough," wasn't the whole point of the contest that Megadeth wanted a revamp of its album art, something new, something different? I think the designs chosen here reflect that. It's nice to see something new.

Congrats to all the finalists.
