2020 ABCs of Extreme Metal Vinyl Challenge

Posted by Justin Bartlett

Share photos of your extreme metal vinyl collection this August on Instagram and win some killer prizes! We're giving away records from 20 BUCK SPIN, shirts from HOLY MOUNTAIN PRINTING, and artwork from VBERKVLT.


Please Read and Follow the Rules!

Try to follow these as much as you can. No one needs to stress out about this!

Ok, first off, The ABCs of Extreme Metal vinyl challenge is open to any form of heavy metal.

However please try to keep your posts on the harsh and ugly side by sharing death metal, black metal, grindcore, or sludge types of bands - or other more "extreme" sub-genres within heavy metal.

If you need to use a classic heavy metal band's name or album title to fill in for a few spots, then by all means go for it! They were the "extreme'"at one time.

The most important thing is to use the correct hashtags so I can make sure you generally followed and met the challenge. #VCABC2020DONE on your final post lets me know you're done.

And don't forget, you can delete these images once the vinyl challenge is over.

  • The vinyl challenge runs from August 1st, 2020 through August 31st, 2020 on Instagram
  • FOLLOW @VBERKVLT on Instagram
  • POST the flyer image on your Instagram profile before July 31st and TAG @VBERKVLT and some of your vinyl collecting friends!!!

  • HASHTAG all of your photos with #VCABC2020 on Instagram
  • HASHTAG your final post with #VCABC2020DONE on Instagram
  • Please make sure to use the correct hashtags. Your posts will have to be verified and counted in order to win.
  • POST at least 26 photos of your vinyl albums corresponding to all 26 letters of the English alphabet on your Instagram account during August 2020.

    The posts must correspond with the first letter of the band or the title of the release. If you're missing a letter, you can use a WILDCARD POST (info below).

    band name post examples:
    A - Agent Steel "Unstoppable Force"
    B - Bolt Thrower "Warmaster"
    C - Cadaver "...In Pains"
    D - Deicide "Once Upon The Cross"
    E - Entombed "Clandestine"

    album title post examples:
    Q - “Queen Of Death” by Atomkraft
    X - “Xecutioner's Return” by Obituary
    Y - "Youthanasia" by Megadeth
    Z - "Zygotical Sabbatory Anabapt" by Sabbat
  • Use any format of vinyl. Post photos of any format: 7", 5", 10", LP, shaped, picture discs, etc. - just as long as it's on vinyl.
  • Missing a letter? Use a WILDCARD! You can post up to FOUR wildcard photos if you're missing a letter, so make these posts count by posting something funny or embarrassing! For example, post a photo of some guilty pleasures like your autographed Stryper discography for "X".

    Additionally you can make a post about a person in a band using a letter of the alphabet. It's always good to recognize and discuss the artists behind the music, so feel free to create posts about your favorite musicians too.

    For example:
    J - Jeff Hanneman (Slayer)
    Q - Quorthon (Bathory)
