Philip Anselmo vs. James Hetfield – Greatest Metal Frontman, Quarterfinals

Philip Anselmo vs. James Hetfield
Spencer Kaufman, Loudwire / Mike Barrett, Loudwire

What do we have here? Just two of the most incredible and influential frontmen of the past 30 years going head to head in this mighty quarterfinal match!

Pantera / Down vocalist Philip Anselmo has dominated his opponents so far, earning 76 percent of the votes in his Round 2 matchup against late Death legend Chuck Schuldiner. That followed a crushing Round 1 win over Napalm Death’s Barney Greenway. With both Pantera and Down fans supporting him, Anselmo is a one tough act to beat.

But standing in the way of Anselmo this time is the frontman of the biggest metal band in all the land — Metallica‘s James Hetfield. With 80 percent of the votes in his win over Cannibal Corpse’s Corpsegrinder and an earlier victory over Anthrax singer Joey Belladonna, Hetfield has set out to seek and destroy his competition, but does he have enough power to defeat the mighty Anselmo?

Philip Anselmo or James Hetfield? Cast your vote for the Greatest Metal Frontman in the poll below! Voting for this round closes on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 11:59PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure that your favorite metal musician wins!
