It was a solid run for I Prevail’s “Alone” on Loudwire’s Cage Match, but the band met their match with Korn’s chugging, moody rocker “Black Is the Soul” this past week, meaning we’ve got a new Cage Match champ anxious to see how far they can go. Does The Serenity of Suffering track have what it takes to continue their run?

This week’s opponent is Metallica’s current hit single, “Now That We’re Dead.” This dark and foreboding, chugging rocker from the Hardwired … To Self-Destruct album has been burning up the airwaves and the concert stages of late and we’ll see how it fares against another rock and metal giant.
