Just as we thought Behemoth were a shoe-in for a Death Match Hall of Fame induction, the Faceless ended the Polish extreme metal band's run. This marks the first Death Match win for the Faceless' 'Accelerated Evolution,' and with three more victories, the song will be declared immortal both on Loudwire.com and our official YouTube channel. However, one of metal's most prolific modern bands will provide a serious challenge.
Behemoth have Satan (and their fans) to thank once again, as the Polish extreme metal band has won three Death Matches in a row. The band only needs one more win for 'Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel' to enter the Death Match Hall of Fame and the official playlist on our YouTube channel. However, stiff competition lies ahead for Behemoth.
Congrats to Behemoth for once again proving their dominance in the Death Match arena. The Polish extreme metal band took out Swedish black metal act Watain in last week's round, giving Behemoth their second consecutive win. Behemoth's 'Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel' is halfway to the Death Match Hall of Fame, but they've got to plow through one of Norway's finest this time around.
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.
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.
