Katatonia vs. As I Lay Dying – Death Match

Katatonia vs. As I Lay Dying
Peaceville / Metal Blade

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.’

Can Katatonia pull out a monumental win in their third Death Match? Or will As I Lay Dying complete the first step towards a Hall of Fame run with ‘Cauterize’? The choice is yours. Vote for your favorite track in the poll below.

(This Death Match ends on Tuesday, August 21, at 10AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
