As I Lay Dying vs. Suicide Silence – Death Match
After an incredibly close match and thousands upon thousands of votes, As I Lay Dying emerged victorious in their bout against Children of Bodom. This brings As I Lay Dying to 3-0 in Death Match. One more win and their tune ‘Paralyzed’ will be the first ever song to be declared immortal in the Death Match Hall of Fame.
This week’s competition for As I Lay Dying is the track ‘You Only Live Once’ by Californian deathcore outfit Suicide Silence. ‘You Only Live Once’ is the band’s second single from their 2011 full-length album, ‘The Black Crown.’ The video for the chug-tastic single is incredibly cool, with the band serving as human targets at a gun range, persisting through fatal wounds to finish their song. Flamethrowers, crossbows and an effing rocket launcher all make appearances in the video gore-fest. Suicide Silence recently embarked on a North American tour with Machine Head, Darkest Hour and Rise to Remain.
Will As I Lay Dying succeed where others have failed? Or will Suicide Silence stand diligently in the way of As I Lay Dying’s immortality? The choice is yours and yours alone. Submit your verdict in the poll below. (Voting ends Jan. 30 at 10AM ET.)
As I Lay Dying, ‘Paralyzed’
Suicide Silence, ‘You Only Live Once’
