For the last month-plus, Butcher Babies have hovered near the top of the Battle Royale Video Countdown, but this is the week that the “Igniter” video made its move, climbing to No. 1 for the first time. In the process, they pushed back Motorhead‘s “When the Sky Comes Looking for You” and First Decree‘s “Stop,” which each slipped a notch to No. 2 and No. 3 respectively.

Elsewhere on the Battle Royale, Adakain‘s “Hey Girl” rebounded in a big way after slipping out of the Top 10 last week, claiming the No. 4 spot. There were also a pair of debuts as Queensryche‘s “Eye9″ arrived at No. 8, while Metal Church‘s “No Tomorrow” claimed the No. 10 position. See all of the Battle Royale Top 10 videos below.

What will next week’s Top 10 look like? That’s up to you. Five new videos — Megadeth‘s “Dystopia,” Killing Joke‘s “Euphoria,” Primal Fear’s “Angels of Mercy,” Archer Nation‘s “Dawn of Dilution” and Resurrection Kings’ “Livin Out Loud” — enter the voting. You can see those clips along with every video in the Battle Royale by clicking on the links in the poll at the bottom of this post.
