Lamb of God vs. Slayer – Death Match
After a long hiatus, it's the return of the Death Match! And we've got two monster tracks to face each other in this brutal battle! Want a "big match" feel? Here it is!
First up is Lamb of God's new track "Still Echoes" from the band's upcoming album VII: Sturm und Drang, due July 24. Inspired by vocalist Randy Blythe's time locked up in the Czech Republic's Pankrac Prison, Blythe lends his demonic guttural to a groove-driven track from the "Pure American Metal" band. Thanks to a "not guilty" verdict delivered to Blythe in 2013, we can rejoice with new Lamb of God music!
Lamb of God's opponent in this edition of the Death Match is Slayer and the thrash legends' brand new cut "Repentless." The title track for Slayer's 11th studio album is arguably the most ripping piece of Repentless released to-date. Fans are digging it, but can the song claim victory in a clash against Lamb of God? Look for Slayer's 'Repentless' album to arrive on Sept. 11.
Will Lamb of God prevail over the legendary thrashers? Or will Slayer's veteran instinct and fresh music come out on top? The choice belongs to you. Vote for your favorite track in the poll below!
