Every single person who grew up watching 'The Fresh Prince of Bel Air' in the early-to-mid '90s can do two things: recite the show's entire theme song at the drop of an extremely colorful hat and dance just like power-nerd Carlton Banks. However, one thing we bet you've never seen is Carlton do his unique dance to Cannibal Corpse's 'Butchered at Birth.'
Here comes the death metal! These two acts are undisputed innovators of their craft, and here they compete in the first round of March Metal Madness to determine the best 21st century metal album. When it comes to both brutality and innovation, these are two bands any death metal aficionado would point curious metalheads towards.

We recently had the pleasure of speaking with booming Napalm Death vocalist Barney Greenway during his stint on the 2013 Decibel Magazine tour, one of the most sonically brutal touring bills ever put together. Along with detailing the most memorable aspects of the tour, we spoke with Barney about new Napalm Death material, the band performing much of the 'Scum' record + much more.
Next up in Round 1 of the Headbanger Region, eclectic metal masters System of a Down battle it out with death metal pioneers Cannibal Corpse to decide which act will move on to Round 2 of March Metal Madness 2013 and come one step closer to being named the greatest metal album of all time.
