Behemoth vs. Watain – Death Match
Hail Behemoth! The extreme / black metal act defeated death metal legends Deicide in our last Death Match. Behemoth are just three wins away from induction into our Death Match Hall of Fame, which can be experienced on our official YouTube channel along with Loudwire.com. Now, having dispensed of one iconic act, Behemoth face yet another one this week.
Hailing from Sweden, black metal frontrunners Watain released one of their all-time greatest efforts, ‘The Wild Hunt,’ in 2013. Although ‘The Wild Hunt’ brought the band into a softer soundscape, the track ‘Outlaw’ is pure, dirty black metal with a bit of old-school influence and ancient chanting thrown in the mix.
Will Behemoth continue their path towards the Death Match Hall of Fame? Or will Watain shoot down their massively popular opponents? The choice belongs to you. Vote for your favorite track in the poll below!
(This Death Match ends on Wednesday, Feb. 5, at 10AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
