Slayer vs. Mastodon – Death Match

Slayer vs. Mastodon
Nuclear Blast / Warner

Slayer¬†are halfway to our Death Match Hall of Fame with the thrashing new track ‘Implode.’ After a clean win against Wretched in Slayer’s last match, we’ve got a colossal battle in store for the metal legends this time around.

Mastodon‘s sixth full-length, ‘Once More ‘Round the Sun,’ has just been unleashed, with one of the album’s strongest tracks, ‘Chimes at Midnight,’ entering the Death Match. ‘Chimes at Midnight’ showcases a huge array of dynamics that Mastodon have built themselves up with for well over a decade, and will prove to be tough competition for Slayer.

Can Slayer blow out another foe? Or will Mastodon signal the end of Slayer’s current reign? We’ll find out as the votes come in! Choose your favorite song in the poll below.

This Death Match ends on Wednesday, July 1, at 10AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
