Get ready for some more of our March Metal Madness competition with the bands in the Headbanger Region. This region boasts some of the most interesting and nail-biting battles between modern and classic metal.

Metallica and their iconic track 'Master of Puppets' will face 'Blackwater Park' by the new kings of progressive metal Opeth. The eternal opus 'Walk' by Pantera is also scheduled to square off with 'Blood and Thunder' by modern groove metal masters Mastodon.

Two of the most important experimental metal bands, System of a Down and Rage Against the Machine, will also duel as 'Chop Suey!' battles 'Bulls on Parade.'

Perhaps the most diverse pairing in the Headbanger Region is the upcoming skirmish with Ozzy Osbourne's 'Crazy Train' featuring iconic guitarist Randy Rhoads vs. the combined genius of Tool and the single 'Schism.'

The winners will advance to the next round and have a chance to become the March Metal Madness champions! Get to voting in the polls below!
