Slayer vs. The Haunted – Death Match

Slayer vs. The Haunted
Nuclear Blast / Century Media

Between the Buried and Me have entered the Death Match Hall of Fame after their song ‘Lay Your Ghosts to Rest’ won four battles in a row. You know that this means — two fresh tracks make their debut in this week’s battle!

Enter Slayer. The ‘Big 4′ thrashers debuted the new song ‘Implode’ at the 2014 Revolver Golden Gods Awards and recently, Nuclear Blast unleashed the official track. ‘Implode’ is has a classic Slayer vibe, heavy on the riff and blazing fast whenever necessary.

Stepping up against Slayer is Swedish metal act the Haunted. 10 years after releasing the essential metal album ‘rEVOLVEr,’ the Haunted cracked out their ‘Eye of the Storm’ EP early this year. The EPs title track has entered the Death Match arena, but is ‘Eye of the Storm’ good enough to topple one of metal’s biggest bands?

Your votes will decide who moves on. Listen to both tracks and pick your favorite in the poll below!

(This Death Match ends on Wednesday, June 18, at 10AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
