What an exciting Death Match we just had! In a battle between Children of Bodom and Whitechapel, tons of votes were cast and both bands switched back and forth with commanding leads throughout.

Sumerian / Nuclear Blast

Just as we thought Behemoth were a shoe-in for a Death Match Hall of Fame induction, the Faceless ended the Polish extreme metal band's run. This marks the first Death Match win for the Faceless' 'Accelerated Evolution,' and with three more victories, the song will be declared immortal both on Loudwire.com and our official YouTube channel.

Congrats to Behemoth for once again proving their dominance in the Death Match arena.
