March Metal Madness: Devil Horn Region – Round 3
After two grueling weeks of March Metal Madness, we’ve reached Round 3 — where the final two bands from each region battle to make it to the Final Four. In the Devil Horn Region, those two remaining bands just happen to be Black Sabbath and Slayer.
Black Sabbath and their classic metal anthem ‘Paranoid’ carved their journey to the regional finals by running through Sepultura‘s ‘Refuse/Resist’ and Van Halen‘s ‘Runnin’ With the Devil.’ Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’ has been untouchable since the inception of March Metal Madness, but it could very well be Slayer who take the metal architects down.
Slayer’s ‘Raining Blood’ has so far defeated Korn‘s ‘Freak on a Leash’ and even more impressively, Megadeth‘s ‘Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?’ The heavier-than-hell thrash quartet now go face to face with Black Sabbath for a spot in the Final Four.
Will Black Sabbath’s reign as the most important band in metal history continue? Or can thrash titans Slayer act as the ‘Angel of Death’ to the dominance of Black Sabbath? The choice is yours. Vote for your favorite track in the poll below! (Voting ends Wednesday, March 28 at 11:59PM ET.)
