Overkill vs. Dying Fetus – Death Match
With Meshuggah claiming their latest victory against death metal giants Cannibal Corpse, Meshuggah upped their Death Match record to 4-0 with their punishing new track ‘Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion.’ With four back-to-back wins, the track by the Swedish extreme metal innovators has been declared immortal in our Death Match Hall of Fame.
With newly opened spots in our weekly Death Match, we’ve chosen two awesome tracks to battle against each other in a quest for metal supremacy.
Thrash legends Overkill just released their latest album, ‘The Electric Age,’ and with it came a lyric video for the blistering track ‘Wish You Were Dead.’ Opening with a falsetto scream, which could rival Bruce Dickinson on ‘Number of the Beast,’ the new Overkill track is a thrasher’s paradise.
Facing off with Overkill in this Death Match is legendary death metal act Dying Fetus. Certainly one of the heaviest bands on the planet, Dying Fetus have just released a lyric video for ‘Subjected To A Beating,’ from their upcoming seventh studio album, ‘Reign Supreme.’
Can Overkill eliminate their death metal foes in this week’s Death Match? Or will Dying Fetus deliver their first-born victory? The decision is yours. Vote for your favorite track in the poll below. (This Death Match ends on April 10 at 10AM EST.)
Overkill, ‘Wish You Were Dead’
