Heavy Metal Concept Albums That Should Be Made Into Movies

Amazon (2)

To say that heavy metal music possesses a flair for the dramatic would be the understatement of the century. From epic battles between God and Satan to musclebound warriors swishing swords and winning over busty babes, the imagery is often theatrical, cinematic, and over-the-top enough to draw equal amounts of ire and praise. You either get it or you don’t. And apparently Hollywood hasn’t quite gotten it. Yet.

It took Hollywood (and technology) decades to catch up to comic books; maybe the industry’s next frontier is film adaptations of hard rock and heavy metal concept albums. We can think of more than a handful of intriguing conceptual works that have been delivered by music’s more imaginative minds, and below are 10 top picks that would surely make sense if translated from sound to big screen sound-and-vision. How cool would it be if someone in Hollywood had the balls to bankroll some of these movie ideas?
