Chelsea Grin vs. Kreator – Death Match
In a vicious battle between Arch Enemy and Chelsea Grin, superfans of both metal acts united to support their heroes. However, after it was all said and done, only one band could walk away from the Death Match in-tact — that band was Chelsea Grin. The Salt Lake City deathcore outfit have scraped up their first Death Match win, but they’ve got a legendary opponent ahead of them.
German thrash metal band Kreator have been taking no prisoners for three decades. Thus, they aim to kill in this week’s Death Match with the title track of their 13th studio album, ‘Phantom Antichrist.’ The video for the track showcases Kreator thrashing in a post-apocalyptic wasteland while horrifying scenes occur all around them. This must-see masterpiece of film is easily one of the best music videos released so far this year.
