Born of Osiris vs. Chimaira – Death Match
A massive round of applause is due for Colorado thrashers Havok, as they won their fourth consecutive match and therefore earned a spot in our Death Match Hall of Fame along with a heavy rotation spot on Loudwire Metal Radio. Congrats to a truly awesome new-school thrash band. Now that Havok's 'Give Me Liberty… or Give Me Death' is immortal, you know what that means -- two new bands now enter the Death Match!
First up, we've got Chicago experimental deathcore band Born of Osiris and the new song 'Machine.' Although Born of Osiris' third studio album has yet to receive a title, the record is set for an Aug. 20 release date. Deathcore fans are sure to love 'Machine,' but even those who vehemently turn away from the genre can appreciate the stellar musicianship and songwriting prowess showcased by Born of Osiris.
Ready to take on Born of Osiris is Cleveland metal act Chimaira. From the band's upcoming seventh full-length, 'Crown of Phantoms,' the new track 'No Mercy' enters the Death Match. The piece is undeniably heavy, focusing much on the 'core' elements of modern metal. 'Crown of Phantoms' will hit shelves on July 30.
Can Born of Osiris birth a successful run to the next round? Or will Chimaira throw a wrench into their adversaries' machine? It's all up to you. Choose your favorite cut in the poll below!
