This Greatest Metal Frontman first-round matchup has the master of horror, Rob Zombie, pitted against another shadowy figure, Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows! (Sorry, we couldn’t resist the pun!)

Rob Zombie is one of the genre’s most entertaining frontman, taking his band to the top with their live performances. His gritty singing and knack for a hook has made Rob Zombie one of metal's most popular figures. Throw in his work with White Zombie and his career gets even more impressive.

Avenged Sevenfold have transitioned from metalcore to anthemic metal over the years, flaunting the talents of singer M. Shadows. He can alternate between screams and cleans, and has been utilizing his raspy clean voice more and more over the years, providing as much melody as the guitars in the band’s music.
