Ozzy Osbourne vs. Guns N’ Roses – March Metal Madness 2013, Round 2
After two hard-fought battles of iconic ’80s albums in the Headbanger Region of March Metal Madness 2013, we’ve got two bands who have emerged victorious. The winner of this Round 2 battle will face the winner of Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’ vs. System of a Down’s ‘Toxicity’ in the quarterfinals!
The ‘Prince of Darkness’ Ozzy Osbourne pulled out a win against one of metal’s most celebrated concept albums, Queensryche’s ‘Operation: Mindcrime.’ Although Queensryche supporters came out in droves, Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Blizzard of Ozz,’ featuring the late legendary shredder Randy Rhoads, was just too big to bring down.
Taking on Ozzy in this next fight is Guns N’ Roses and their massive debut album, ‘Appetite for Destruction.’ Easily one of the greatest debuts in rock and metal history, ‘Appetite’ chewed up King Diamond and his brilliant concept record ‘Abigail.’
