Meshuggah vs. Children of Bodom – Metal Madness 2014, Round 1

Meshuggah vs Children of Bodom
Nuclear Blast / Spinefarm

It’s an old fashioned clash of European metal acts in the fourth and final Devil Horns Region matchup of the 2014 March Metal Madness competition. And you get to have a say in which act has the better 21st Century metal album.

We start with those hard-hitting Swedes — Meshuggah. The band generated the masterpiece ‘obZen’ well into their career, as the 2008 effort was their sixth studio album. The pure aggression of songs like ‘Combustion’ and ‘Bleed’ immediately grab the listener and pull them in. The powerful guitar and drum work on ‘Pravus’ keeps them coming back for more. ‘obZen’ is Meshuggah metal at its finest.

They square off against Children of Bodom‘s 2000 release ‘Follow the Reaper.’ The Finnish five-piece deliver a truly brutal effort, while incorporating some amazing keyboard parts in the process. ‘Every Time I Die,’ ‘Hate Me’ and the title track have all become live favorites over the years, and ‘Children of Decadence’ is one of the more intricate tracks you’ll hear.

So there you have it — Meshuggah’s ‘obZen’ and Children of Bodom’s ‘Follow the Reaper’ squaring off in the Devil Horns Region of March Metal Madness. Vote for your favorite album below.

(This poll will end on Sunday, March 9 at 11:59 PM EST. Fans are able to vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure your favorite album wins!)
