Children of Bodom vs. Animals as Leaders – Death Match
What an exciting Death Match we just had! In a battle between Children of Bodom and Whitechapel, tons of votes were cast and both bands switched back and forth with commanding leads throughout. However, it was Children of Bodom who emerged victorious, and if they win this next matchup, 'Scream for Silence' will claim a spot in our Death Match Hall of Fame both on Loudwire and our official YouTube channel.
For Bodom's fourth and final match, they face instrumental metal giants Animals as Leaders and the new track 'Tooth and Claw.' From the band's upcoming third full-length album, 'The Joy of Motion,' this Death Match entrant features stunning guitar work from Tosin Abasi and the brilliant drumming of Matt Garstka. 'The Joy of Motion' will see a March 25 release date via Sumerian Records.
