After a hard-fought battle for supremacy in the previous Death Match, Suicide Silence edged out reigning champs As I Lay Dying in the final hours of the war by a slim margin of 51-49 percent. Suicide Silence fans united in an incredible showing of solidarity and dedication to their deathcore heroes, giving As I Lay Dying their first loss after a Hall of Fame induction seemed certain for the band until the very last moments. Thanks to their insane fans, Suicide Silence's 'You Only Live Once' moves on to its second bout in the Death Match.

Suicide Silence have no easy task in vanquishing their next opponents -- August Burns Red and their new video for 'Empire.' Released on the band's 2011 album 'Leveler,' the video depicts a heavy and melodic side of the band while they shake the Earth from the barren heart of the desert. The band are currently headlining a U.S. tour with Silverstein, Texas in July, Letlive and I, The Breather. Check out the dates here.
