Gojira vs. Enslaved – Death Match

Roadrunner / Nuclear Blast

The battle between Gojira and As I Lay Dying became pretty fierce in its closing hours, with the Death Match songs being separated by less than a one-percent difference. As the match came to an end, Gojira received a huge push from their fans, clinching the competition in its final moments. With two wins under their belt, Gojira and ‘The Axe’ will now face one of black metal’s most legendary acts.

Enslaved enter this week’s Death Match with their new track ‘Veilburner’ from the band’s upcoming 12th album, ‘RIITIIR.’ The veteran Norwegian black metallers have been going strong since 1991 and have been releasing a steady stream of albums since their 1994 debut, ‘Vikingligr Veldi.’

Can Gojira make their next step on their way to Death Match Hall of Fame immortality? Or will the black metal legends freeze the French metal outfit in their tracks? The choice belongs to you. Vote for your favorite track now!

(This Death Match ends on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 10AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
