The idea of this new thread is the next, you should mention albums of which a successful movie could be made, regardless of the genre and the year of release.

Original concept albums like Operation: Mindcrime and The Crimson Idol (probably my favorite albums ever).

In what way? Like lyrics that tell a story good enough to be a screenplay? or music that could be used for a musical?

Not that long ago I mentioned Death's Design from Diabolical Masquerade in another thread. According to Blackheim, that album was writen as if it was a movie, ence such short songs.

Some King Diamond albums, probably "Them" and Conspiracy. I think those two would be best as movies. Or maybe House of God! King himself would have a role in them. I know he could probably pull that off.

It's mandatory, I know. Somebody had to say it.

Operation: Mindcrime for sure.

Unleash The Archers - Apex

I love the story on it, lots of intriguing and action sequences can be made.

Fear Factory - Obsolete. I reckon it'd make a pretty cool movie.

I've always been intrigued with the idea of a film for Opeth's Still Life.

Since it was released I had a very clear image in my head of the aesthetic. Turns out, decades later, the film "The Witch" was almost exactly what I was envisioning.

I always thought that "Into The Electric Castle" by Ayreon would make a cool animated film.

And "Abigail" duh. Though I prefer the story he had going on "The Puppet Master" overall.

I would like to see Metropolis part 2 to get the movie adaptation treatment. Imagine how praised it would be if it all started out as a film, with it's great ending. But I would mostly like to see Scanner's Mental Reservation become a movie
It has the potential to be a great Sci-Fi movie similar to Brazil by combining political themes. I dismiss Operation Mindcrime because the ending of the second album is disappointing.. but I can say it could make a good mini-series. Magica could have been a great fantasy film but I'd prefer if it was filmed in the 60's with practical effects done by Ray Harryhausen and have a plot twist similar to Denzel Washington's Fallen.

As much as I despise Schaffer's "concept" shit, it'd be kind of cool to see Set Abominae in the big screen.

The Puppet Master is a very "graphic" story. In the potential ones for sure.

Relentless Mutation for sure. The lyrics are pretty much the perfect base for a movie.

Metropolis 2's concept is baloney. Just my two cents. And the lyrics are pretty bad.

I think a successful depressing drug movie could be made based on Alice in Chains - Dirt.

Yeah the Crimson Idol is very original and making a movie out of it would be even more original, let's give Bob Geldof a call for playing the lead.

"Dreaming Neon Black." But what a downer of a movie it would be.

Did anyone see Nightwish's "Imaginaerum" movie?

I don't think there are many albums suitable for this thread as the one in the picture.

Blood on Ice by Bathory would be really cool to see, but it would be very similar to Conan the Barbarian.

At War With Satan (just the song) would be incredible.

Yes, 100%. You could actually take the first 4 albums and make a series out of them, with the soundtrack in the backround you would have an awesome sci-fi.

Night of the Stormrider could make a good 80s style flick.

Solefald's Icelandic saga albums could be interesting, especially the first one as it has a clearer storyline.

Hvis Lyset Tar Oss might become a weird symbolist movie, with little to no dialogue and most likely in black and white.

Nocturnus - The Key is the obvious answer here

I was listening to Green Carnation's 'A Blessing in Disguise' earlier today and that's got very involved lyrics and a cinematic approach to the writing. Actually, 'Light of Day, Day of Darkness' would be an obvious one too.

It was fuckin' weird.

I've always wanted to see an animated adaptation of Judas Priest's Painkiller. There's not much story beyond a bunch of fighting but between highly stylized characters and an over the top apocalyptic setting, I could imagine an aesthetic somewhere between late 80s Transformers and early 90s X-Men.
