There’s no stopping Avatar! The rockers continue to dominate the Battle Royale Video Countdown with their eye-catching video for “For The Swarm,” now spending its third straight week at No. 1 with a convincing victory. Mudface‘s “Hellfoot” held down the No. 2 spot this week, while a trio of videos broke into the Battle Royale Top 10 this week, serving notice of a future run at No. 1.

Slayer‘s violent “You Against You” clip had the biggest week among the debuts, snagging the No. 3 spot on the Battle Royale. Anthrax‘s epic tale “Blood Eagle Wings” also had a solid opening, taking the No. 5 spot, while Coheed and Cambria‘s street superhero saga for “Island” debuted one spot back in a tie for No. 6 with Queensryche‘s “Eye9.” See all of the Battle Royale Top 10 Videos below.

Though Avatar have dominated of late, can they hold on to the top spot? New videos from BabyMetal (“Karate”), Andy Black (“We Don’t Have To Dance”), Rob Zombie (“Well, Everybody’s F–king in a UFO”), Danzig (“N.I.B.”), The Word Alive (“Trapped”), Abbath (“Winterbane”) and Incite (“No Remorse”) enter the voting. See those clips, along with every video available to vote upon, by clicking on the links in the poll at the bottom of this page. You can vote once per hour through the deadline of Friday, April 1 at 11AM ET. So get the vote out and make sure your favorite video tallies up enough to make the Top 10.
