Chimaira vs. Gorguts – Death Match
Chimaira deserve some serious props for their latest Death Match win. Although Pantera legend Philip H. Anselmo has a nearly unparalleled legion of hardcore fans, he was unable to throw Chimaira off the path to victory. This marks Chimaira’s second Death Match win, bringing the band half-way to becoming immortalized in our Death Match Hall of Fame.
Entering the Death Match this week is legendary death metal band Gorguts. Twelve years since the band’s last release, Gorguts have created a truly phenomenal album with ‘Colored Sands,’ which will be released on Sept. 3. Representing Gorguts’ fifth studio disc is the ultra-dissonant track ‘Forgotten Arrows,’ which acts as a perfect representation of ‘Colored Sands.’
Will Chimaira continue their winning streak? Or will Gorguts pierce their opponents with ‘Forgotten Arrows’? The decision belongs to the fans, so choose wisely in the poll below!
