Thanks so much to everyone who helped make our very first Extreme Metal Olympics so successful. After nearly three weeks and hundreds of thousands of votes being cast throughout, Japanese experimental metal band Dir En Grey defeated the legendary Death to capture the gold medal.
The memory of Chuck Schuldiner and the music of Death live on through those who have embraced the music of the death metal pioneers. Despite being the only inactive band featured in the Extreme Metal Olympics, the legendary group walked away with a silver medal.
Cannibal Corpse are brutality incarnate, and with the help of their legions of fans, the brutal death metal giants brought one of two medals home to the USA by defeating Children of Bodom in the Bronze Medal Match.
