First off, congrats are in order as Marilyn Manson's 'Deep Six' finished off its fifth straight victorious week in the Cage Match and is now being retired to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. Manson's 'Deep Six' bested Slipknot's 'Custer' in a hard fought victory. With Manson retiring, it's time for two new competitors in the Loudwire Cage Match.

In one corner, you've got Halestorm ready to break out with their lead single 'Apocalyptic' from the upcoming 'Into the Wild Life' album. As you would hope, 'Apocalyptic' is a gritty rocker with plenty of Lzzy Hale vocal swagger on the track. Look for them performing the song on tour at these locations.

And stepping into the other corner is Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The band is sending the bluesy, slow building rocker 'Bent to Fly' into battle, a standout on their 'World on Fire' disc. Slash is currently touring overseas, but will return stateside later this spring. See the dates here.

So who will be the new Loudwire Cage Match champ -- Halestorm's 'Apocalyptic' or Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators' 'Bent to Fly'? Listen to both songs in the players provided, then let your vote count in the poll below.

(This Cage Match will run until Feb. 9 at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
