Chimaira deserve some serious props for their latest Death Match win. Although Pantera legend Philip H. Anselmo has a nearly unparalleled legion of hardcore fans, he was unable to throw Chimaira off the path to victory. This marks Chimaira's second Death Match win, bringing the band half-way to becoming immortalized in our Death Match Hall of Fame.
Last week, we had two metal acts make their debut in the Loudwire Death Match. As always, one band emerged victorious, and that band was Chimaira. With one victory under their collective belt, Chimaira now are on their way to the Death Match Hall of Fame, but they've got a major threat to defuse first.
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!
Havok have been in berserker mode ever since entering their first Death Match, capturing their third straight win this week against Evile. Havok only need one more win to gain induction into the Death Match Hall of Fame as well as a heavy rotation spot on Loudwire Metal Radio. However, Havok truly have to earn their spot, so we've put them a battle with one of thrash's best new school acts.
In the entire history of Loudwire Death Matches, we've never had a battle like Havok vs. Revocation. The two bands swapped leads again and again during the last few days of the match and in the end, Havok came out victorious by ONE SINGLE VOTE. Who says your vote doesn't count?! Havok are now halfway to the Hall of Fame and to get there, they'll have to earn a victory against one of modern thrash's biggest bands.
A hearty congratulations has been earned by melodic death metal vikings Amon Amarth! The band won their fourth consecutive Death Match this week, gaining entrance into the Death Match Hall of Fame. Now that 'Deceiver of the Gods' has been declared immortal, we've got two fresh entrants for our next brutal battle.
Amon Amarth have crushed yet another band under their massive hammer. Immolation were defeated by the melodic metal act and Amon Amarth are now one victory away from being inducted into the Death Match Hall of Fame, along with gaining a heavy rotation spot on Loudwire Metal Radio. Can the Swedish masters do it?!
