After some time off for the holidays, we're bringing back the Death Match! We've also re-vamped the Death Match Hall of Fame, which in addition to living on Loudwire.com, also now appears on the official Loudwire YouTube channel. Hall of Fame inductees will now get more exposure than ever, and these two bands will now face off for the chance to carve a path to the Hall.
Congrats to Annihilator for achieving their Death Match victory. We're in the process of revamping the Death Match, so we'll be taking a break for a bit. However, keep checking back for the new incarnation of the Death Match. Cheers!
Battlecross was so incredibly close to a Death Match Hall of Fame induction, but in the last moments of last week's battle, Soulfly swooped down and clenched a win. Soulfly and their new track 'Bloodshed' now begin their own trail to the Death Match Hall of Fame, and they've got some legends to deal with right away.
Battlecross have knocked off yet another legendary thrash act. In their third consecutive Death Match, the American metallers were able to defeat Sepultura by a very respectable margin. Battlecross only need one more win to enter the Death Match Hall of Fame, so since the current Sepultura lineup wasn't able to claim victory, we're gonna inject some Cavalera into this match.
Battlecross have already carved themselves an impressive trail since debuting in our Death Match arena two weeks ago. After dispatching of Skeletonwitch with 'Force Fed Lies,' Battlecross claimed an even more impressive win in their latest battle against Testament. To keep the competition constant, we've got yet another massive challenge for the Michigan thrash / death metal band.
With their fourth consecutive win in our series of Death Matches, Incantation were able to defeat Suffocation to gain entry into the Death Match Hall of Fame. Congrats to the brutal band as their track 'Invoked Infinity' has been declared immortal! Although we won't be hearing from Incantation in this Death Match, we've got two new acts ready for battle.
Incantation have scorched yet another opponent in our latest Death Match. Although the legendary Swedes of Grave put forth a punishing song with 'Venial Sin,' Incantation's 'Invoked Infinity' claimed its third consecutive win. This next match could put Incantation into our Death Match Hall of Fame, but it's only fair that we hit them with their toughest opponent yet for this final match.
Incantation are halfway to the Death Match Hall of Fame after defeating the brutal Italians of Fleshgod Apocalypse. The American death metal legends also beat down British extreme metal icons Carcass. Incantation's European invasion now stops in the metal mecca of Sweden, as the band faces death metal veterans Grave.
Carcass seemed to be starting a powerful drive to the Death Match Hall of Fame after placing Exhumed in a coffin two matches ago, but the almighty Incantation were able to dissect Carcass for a bloody win in our latest Death Match. This week, the death metal legends step up to one of the genre's newest and most exciting acts.
