Katatonia vs. As I Lay Dying – Death Match
Cheers to Katatonia and their new track ‘Dead Letters,’ for the band has racked up a second Death Match win against death metal legends Nile. Apparently the Red Sea decided not to split for a second time, as Nile drowned in defeat. Katatonia will now face their third opponent, who have nearly made the Death Match Hall of Fame in the past.
As I Lay Dying are one of the most successful bands in Death Match history to have never been inducted into the Hall of Fame. Being the only band who as ever eliminated Lamb of God, As I Lay Dying narrowly missed making the Hall of Fame in January of this year, losing to Suicide Silence in a match that would have granted them immortality in the sacred Hall. As I Lay Dying now return with their newest single, ‘Cauterize’ off their upcoming album ‘Awakened.’
