Napalm Death vs. Meshuggah – Death Match

Napalm Death vs. Meshuggah
Century Media / Nuclear Blast

The Devil Wears Prada just claimed their fourth and final victory against the Black Dahlia Murder, becoming the first band in the history of Death Match to be inducted into the Death Match Hall of Fame. The group’s single ‘Born to Lose’ has been declared immortal, and thus the Death Match must continue with two new tracks.

Napalm Death are often credited as the chemists of grindcore, and throughout their 31-year career have made some of the most aggressive metal in history. The band has just released a video for the first single ‘Analysis Paralysis’ from their latest effort, ‘Utilitarian.’ Check out our recent interview with singer Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway here.

Their opponents, Meshuggah, also have rightfully claimed their spot as extreme metal innovators. The Swedish quintet are in their 25th year of making music and have been crushing skulls nonstop. Meshuggah recently unleashed their lyric video for ‘Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion,’ from their highly-anticipated, upcoming seventh full-length, ‘Koloss,’ due March 26.

Who will win in this battle of the extreme metal legends? The choice is yours. Check out the videos below and vote for the track most deserving of the path to immortality in Loudwire’s Death Match. (This Death Match runs until Monday, March 12 at 10AM ET.)
