Chimaira vs. Philip H. Anselmo – Death Match

Chimaira vs. Philip H. Anselmo
eOne / Housecore

Last week, we had two metal acts make their debut in the Loudwire Death Match. As always, one band emerged victorious, and that band was Chimaira. With one victory under their collective belt, Chimaira now are on their way to the Death Match Hall of Fame, but they’ve got a major threat to defuse first.

Philip H. Anselmo‘s first solo release, ‘Walk Through Exits Only,’ has finally hit stores, and to celebrate, Philip H. Anselmo his backing band the Illegals enter the Death Match with ‘Bedridden.’ Although based in hardcore, ‘Bedridden’ is soaked with metal influence. Along Anselmo’s aggro approach, the track’s guitar work takes center stage with a very whammy bar-heavy bridge.

Can Chimaira collect a second win? Or will Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals render their opponents into human pulp? Choose your favorite track below and seal the fate of these two acts.

(This Death Match ends on Tuesday, July 23, at 10AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
