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.

Lars Ulrich or Charlie Benante? Cast your vote for the Greatest Metal Drummer in the poll below! Voting for this round closes on Monday, Sept. 2 at 11:59PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure that your favorite metal musician wins!
