In their first ever Death Match appearance, Katatonia managed to defeat French heavy hitters Gojira in last week's battle. The Swedish metal heavyweights have now begun their very own path to the Death Match Hall of Fame, but their path may be blocked by the Gods of Ancient Egypt.

Nile recently released the track, 'The Fiends Who Comes to Steal the Magick of the Deceased,' from their latest album, 'At the Gate of Sethu.' The veteran death metal band have continued their Egyptian-influenced sound with 'At the Gate of Sethu,' which has been receiving passionate reactions from fans.

Can Katatonia continue their journey to the Death Match Hall of Fame? Or will Nile unleash the plagues upon the Swedish metal masterminds to walk their own path? The choice is yours. Vote for your favorite track below!
