Black Sabbath vs. System of a Down – March Metal Madness 2013, Round 2

Black Sabbath vs. System of a Down
Vertigo / American

In our first head-to-head matchup in Round 2 of the Headbanger Region of March Metal Madness 2013, we’ve got an interesting pairing in this year’s battle of metal’s all-time greatest albums. Who will win this battle? The choice is all up to the fans!

Black Sabbath‘s legendary album ‘Paranoid’ and its classic tracks ‘War Pigs,’ ‘Iron Man’ and others beat out fellow genre-blueprinters Venom and their masterful record ‘Black Metal.’ The godfathers of heavy metal now move on to face one of the most unique and eclectic metal bands of all time.

In a much tighter race than Black Sabbath vs. Venom, System of a Down‘s ‘Toxicity’ was able to defeat the Cannibal Corpse classic ‘Tomb of the Mutilated.’ Unfortunately for Corpse, ‘Hammer Smashed Face’ was drowned by ‘Chop Suey!’ and now we’ve got a battle between Sabbath and System ready for the bell.

Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’ or System of a Down’s ‘Toxicity’? Vote for your favorite album in the poll below!

(This poll will end Monday, March 25 at 11:59 PM EST. Fans are able to vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure your favorite album wins!)


Next: Ozzy Osbourne vs. Guns N' Roses
