Two metal legends face a tough matchup as Rob Halford is up against Tom Araya in Round 2.

After handily defeating the dynamic Overkill frontman Bobby Blitz, Rob Halford takes on a fellow metal legend in this round. The Metal God has paid his dues and spearheaded so much of what we love about heavy metal, including spikes and leather and wailing falsetto screams with Judas Priest. He’ll be a tough act to beat.

Slayer frontman Tom Araya defeated Testament‘s Chuck Billy by a sizable margin. Araya can belt out a falsetto like Halford, but immediately takes things to a grittier and aggressive tone to match the intensity of Slayer’s music. Will Araya slay again or die by the sword? You decide!
