At KICK*ASS*METAL and the KICK*ASS*METAL heavy metal hall of fame.

We noticed.

3 of the top 10 concept albums of all-time happened in 2015.

Leaves’ Eyes * KING OF KINGS

Wooden Stake * A Feast of Virgin Souls

&

THE GODLY

One-Eyed Doll * Witches

Even though Leaves’ Eyes “King of Kings” has more fist-pumping fist banging mania punch the sky RIFFS, this article is not about fist-pumping riffs. It is about the GREATEST CONCEPT ALBUMS OF ALL-TIME.

Do not deceive yourself Leaves’ Eyes “KING OF KINGS” is a mind-blowing KICK*ASS concept album in its own right.

The Hard Rock GREATEST CONCEPT ALBUM OF ALL-TIME is

One-Eyed Doll “Witches”

 

One-Eyed Doll Hails from Austin, Texas

 

The True Metal GREATEST CONCEPT ALBUM OF ALL-TIME is

Crest of Darkness (NORWAY) ” The Ogress”

And Crest of Darkness does not hail from either of the Norwegian Metal hotbeds of Oslo, Norway, or Stavanger, Norway, the Hail from Gjøvik , Norway

The average headbanger and insane metal fanatic maniac, thrasher is not even aware The Ogress is a concept album. Because they are not up on Norwegian Serial Killers.

I decided to DO THE GREATEST CONCEPT ALBUM OF ALL-TIME is 2 Categories.

TRUE METAL or what the mainstream calls EXTREME METAL

&

HARD ROCK, the hard rock bands that we cover here that are MORE METAL THAN METAL, that get no coverage from BNR and METAL-ARCHIVES, and the likes.

 

THE GREATEST CONCEPT ALBUM of ALL-TIME FOR

TRUE METAL

Crest of Darkness (NORWAY) * THE OGRESS

 

and

 

HARD ROCK

One-Eyed Doll * WITCHES

One-Eyed Doll Witches is the Greatest Concept album of all-time in the Genre Heavier Hard Rock.

 

I usually try to categorize bands what they want to be classified as, as they describe themselves on official presence like websites and facebook official.

Facebook One-Eyed Doll says they are

ROCK ‘N ROLL

 

So everyone who reads KICK*ASS*METAL knows we are a DARK METAL, DARK CLASSICAL, DARK GOTHIC, DARK THRASH, DARK GLAM, DARK INDUSTRIAL, DARK SYMPHONIC, DARK AVANT-GARDE METAL, HORROR METAL, DARK HORROR publication.

So know you know why Crest of Darkness always graces these pages.

 

One-Eyed Doll your thinking Why are they Gracing the Pages of KICK*ASS*METAL. We went to an unofficial source not BNR or Metal-Archives, they have no pages there, even though Kimberly Freeman has one of the GREATEST BONE CRUNCHING GUITAR TONES OF ALL-TIME. AND THEY ARE  ONE THE GREATEST LIVE BANDS OF ALL-TIME.

there sound is described as

GOTH PUNK

HORROR PUNK

Eletropunk

Experimental

Heavy Metal

 

KICK*ASS*METAL is a GOTHIC METAL publication, and we specialize in artistic authenticity. And specifically look for albums that are SUPREME IMMORTAL ART OF THE HIGHEST ORDER that are TIMELESS MASTERPIECES.

And one aspect of One-Eyed Doll that can never be taken away from them, is One-Eyed Doll is the real deal. And a true one-of-a-kind, and a band with their own sound.

 

What made me come to this conclusion, of One-Eyed “Doll” Witches being The Greatest Concept Album of all-time, in the Heavier Hard Rock Genre was this video. Before this video, I knew One-Eyed Doll “Witches” was a top 10, top 5, top 3 Concept album of all-time. It is how the album was written and produced, and how it is THE PERFECT CONCEPT album in every aspect. Some albums have a cool theme running though them, and some concept albums the artist will have a out of place song, just because the song is a KICK*ASS song, and was added onto an album. Instead of releasing, the out-of-place song as a single or a Extended Play, EP.

 

The album has a perfect TIMELESSNESS factor to how it is written, and how the album has a perfect flow from song to song.

When the album One-Eyed Doll “Witches” was first released I knew it was going to be a KICK*ASS*METAL hall of fame album, and top 100 album of 2015.  So I ordered 4 CD’s right away when the pre-ordering was happening back in early 2015

 

Besides having THE GREATEST CONCEPT ALBUM OF ALL-TIME, One-Eyed Doll has a top 10 Concert To their Credit and to the History of all things KICK*ASS there is a concert review of the 9/29/2015, else where on KICK*ASS*METAL
