Overkill vs. Goatwhore – Death Match
Wow! Slayer had just one more win to go to enter our Death Match Hall of Fame, but Overkill and their new track ‘Armorist’ defeated the Big 4 titans by a fairly large margin. Thus, Overkill now continue their pilgrimage to our Death Match Hall of Fame by facing one of blackened thrash / death metal’s finest bands.
Goatwhore have long taken influence from death metal and thrash metal bands, but the New Orleans act’s new song ‘FBS’ is very thrash driven. The heavy hitting track provides an interesting matchup between these two bands, as ‘Armorist’ and ‘FBS’ are separated mainly by different vocal styles rather than a large multitude of dynamics.
Will Overkill continue their Death Match reign? Or will the South rise again for a Goatwhore victory? Check out both tracks and vote for your favorite in the poll below!
