With Andy Black‘s “Ribcage” video retiring from the Battle Royale Video Countdown after five weeks at No. 1, the top spot was wide open? Shinedown‘s “How Did You Love” and Avenged Sevenfold‘s “The Stage” looked like contenders heading into the week, but two videos making their first appearance in the Top 10 actually held them out of the top spot. Farewell, My Love‘s creative and eye-catching video for “Inside a Nightmare” debuted on top, while The Pretty Reckless‘ “Take Me Down,” which led early in the week, arrived at No. 2.

Lacey Sturm enjoyed a late week push, keeping “Rot” in the No. 3 spot, with Shinedown and Avenged Sevenfold settling for fourth and fifth. The Pretty Reckless and Farewell, My Love weren’t the only debuts this week, as Shaman’s Harvest‘s “Here It Comes” settled in at No. 7. See the Battle Royale Video Countdown Top 10 below.

As for next week, you’ll have the opportunity to send new videos from Art of Anarchy (“The Madness”), Dark Tranquillity (“Forward Momentum”), Entombed A.D. (“Dead Dawn”), Evergrey featuring Floor Jansen (“In Orbit”), Fit for Rivals (“Novocain”), I Prevail (“Stuck in Your Head”), Korn (“Take Me”) and Whitechapel (“Bring Me Home”) into the Top 10. You can see those videos, along with every clip available to vote upon, by clicking the links in the poll at the bottom of this post. You can vote once per hour through the deadline of Friday, Nov. 4, at 11AM ET. So make those votes count.
