Cliff Burton vs. Steve Harris – Greatest Metal Bassist, Semifinals

Cliff Burton vs. Steve Harris
Elektra / Mary Ouellette,

It doesn’t get more legendary than Cliff Burton and Steve Harris! Support for both of these musicians has been overwhelming ever since we launched our Greatest Metal Bassist tournament. In what’s sure to be a tough fight, these two classic metal bassists battle for supremacy.

Late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton has been dominating every matchup in our Greatest Metal Bassist bracket. Burton smashed Napalm Death’s Shane Embury and Symphony X’s Michael LePond before knocking out fellow ‘Big 4′ legend David Ellefson from Megadeth. Will Burton make it to the final round?

Perhaps the most prolific heavy metal bassist of all time, Iron Maiden‘s Steve Harris has been on a streak of dominance very similar to that of Cliff Burton. In Round 1, Harris took down Helloween low-ender Markus Grosskopf before beating Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx in Round 2. With yet another victory over late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray, Harris advances to the semifinals.

Cliff Burton or Steve Harris? Vote for your favorite bassist in the poll below! Voting for this round closes on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 10:00AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure that your favorite metal musician wins!
