It was a tough battle that changed leads several times, but Asking Alexandria's anthemic rocker "Here I Am" bested four-time Cage Match champ -- Sick Puppies' "Stick to Your Guns" -- and the band is ready to see how far they can go in the Loudwire Cage Match.

Trivium will be the first opponent, stepping into the Loudwire Cage Match with their current single "Dead and Gone." The hard-rocking track is a favorite off their Silence in the Snow album and is bound to be powerful live. The group is wrapping up a European tour and will return stateside in July. See their shows here.

Turn it up and rip off the volume knob as you listen to Asking Alexandria's "Here I Am" and Trivium's "Dead and Gone" in the players provided. Then let us know which track you want to see advance by voting in the poll below.

Rules of Cage Match:
Fans can vote once per hour for their favorite song. If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight cage matches, it is retired to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With so many great songs out there, we have to give other bands a chance!
