Battle Royale: Butcher Babies Edge Big Debut From Amon Amarth on Video Countdown
Butcher Babies are back in the top spot for the third straight week on the Battle Royale Video Countdown, but their "Igniter" clip had some serious competition this past week. At one point during the voting, the video had fallen behind the debut of Amon Amarth's "First Kill," but used a late push to reclaim the top spot. "First Kill" did end up right on the heels of "Igniter" in its debut week, arriving at No. 2. Meanwhile, Bobaflex made a big move from No. 8 to No. 3 with their video for "A Spider in the Dark."
Speaking of Amon Amarth's "First Kill," it was one of two big debuts this week. 10 Years' animated clip for "From Birth to Burial" was the other, settling in at No. 6 in its first week on the Battle Royale. It should also be noted that First Decree's "Stop" snagged the No. 4 spot this past week, but as the longest running video on the Battle Royale, it will get one final victory lap week of voting before being retired. See the Battle Royale Top 10 videos below.
