2019 ABCs of Extreme Metal Vinyl Challenge on Instagram

Posted by

Share photos of your heavy and extreme metal vinyl collection this June on Instagram and win some killer prizes! We're giving away hundreds of dollars in records from 20 BUCK SPIN, your choice of a t-shirt from HOLY MOUNTAIN PRINTING, and heavy music artwork from VBERKVLT and KVLT PLANET.


This contest was a big hit the first time we ran it, but for 2019 we wanted more of you to be able to participate. To open the contest up a bit, we added two new rules!

Now you can use album titles for your posts, like "Xecutioner's Return" by Obituary for "X"

If you're missing certain letters, you can use wild card posts to fill in for missing letters

Finally, what can be considered "extreme" is very subjective, this time around the vinyl challenge is open to any form of heavy metal. Considering that half of you will probably post Ghost albums we figured there was room for traditional heavy metal, glam, hair metal bands, industrial metal, and even "nü-metal" too.

If you felt left out last time because you couldn't share your incredible collection of White Lion, Five Finger Death Punch, Rob Zombie, or RATT albums, now it's your chance!

Of course if you want to keep this on the "extreme" side by sharing only death metal, black metal, grindcore, or sludge bands on vinyl, you can do that too.

Please check out the NEW RULES for 2019. The complete list of prizes are below too!

The Instagram challenge begins June 1st and ends June 30th.


Don't forget to follow @VBERKVLT and @KVLTPLANET on Instagram
