Slayer vs. Mastodon – Death Match
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.
