Swedish progressive legends Opeth defeated the Belgian death metal band Aborted, moving on to compete against Japanese eclectic metal act Dir En Grey. In an incredibly close battle, Dir En Grey just managed to edge out the Austrian death machines of Belphegor.

Polish death metal outfit Decapitated came out with a victory against Swedish death metal legends Hypocrisy in a close battle. Decapitated now look to beat yet another Swedish metal band, Arch Enemy, who defeated Canadian technical death merchants Cryptopsy in the Opening Round.
