Megadeth vs. Judas Priest – Classic Cage Match

Megadeth vs Judas Priest
Capitol / Columbia

Megadeth just keep rolling through the Classic Cage Match. After victories over Slayer’s ‘Raining Blood’ and Metallica’s ‘Master of Puppets’ with their song ‘Peace Sells,’ Megadeth just added to their win streak as their 1990 track ‘Holy Wars … The Punishment Due’ defeated Pantera’s ‘Domination.’

‘Holy Wars’ will now square off against another classic favorite from 1990 — Judas Priest‘s ‘Painkiller.’ Drummer Scott Travis sets this highly propulsive track off on the right foot before the dual guitar attack of Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing kicks in. And Rob Halford’s high register vocals just cinches this track as an instant classic.

Who will win? That’s up to you. The winning band will advance to face a new opponent. So turn the volume all the way up to 11, listen to these classics once more and then vote for your favorite between Megadeth’s ‘Holy Wars … The Punishment Due’ and Judas Priest’s ‘Painkiller.’

(This Cage Match will run until Thursday, Jan. 2, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
