The first round of our Greatest Metal Frontman tournament is heating up with another killer matchup, this time between shock rock industrialist Marilyn Manson and nu-metal pioneer Jonathan Davis!

Marilyn Manson took heavy inspiration from Alice Cooper, but took things to an even stranger and darker path with his androgynous sexual imagery and overtly blasphemous lyrics. He has confused and angered countless people, but has always been understood and adored by his loyal fanbase.

Korn’s Jonathan Davis has shares a host of vocal similarities with his opponent as both bands released their debut albums in 1994. As a pioneer of the nu-metal sound, Davis’ lyrics deal with personal struggles that he conveys through the use of a chilling voice and angered shouts.
