HIM vs. Volbeat – Cage Match

HIM and their track ‘Tears on Tape’ won the previous Cage Match by beating out Queens of the Stone Age, but can the Finnish love metal act defeat the next heavyweight challenger?

Danish band Volbeat heat things up with their new tune ‘The Hangman’s Body Count’ off of their latest disc ‘Outlaw Gentleman & Shady Ladies.’ The band recently rocked New York City’s Best Buy Theater in Time Square; go here to check out our photo gallery from that show. They also have a few dates in May with All That Remains and will head to Europe for the major summer festivals. For a full list of dates, go here.

So will Volbeat calculate a win with ‘The Hangman’s Body Count’ or will HIM continue to march on the path to victory with their ‘Tears on Tape’? Get in on the action by listening to both tracks and voting for your favorite in the poll below!

(This Cage Match will run until Monday, April 22, at 8AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
