Queensryche’s Scott Rockenfield offered a more than respectable fight during his Round 1 battle with Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich, but when the polls closed, Ulrich had accumulated the greater amount of votes. Ulrich’s win, and the victory of his Round 2 foe, creates a fight not only between iconic thrash drummers, but a battle of ‘Big 4′ drummers.

Two of thrash metal’s best drummers faced off in Round 1, but it was Anthrax‘s Charlie Benante edging out former Sepultura stickman Igor Cavalera in a hard-fought battle. Now, Benante moves on to Round 2 against another thrash master, Lars Ulrich.
