Just as we thought Behemoth were a shoe-in for a Death Match Hall of Fame induction, the Faceless ended the Polish extreme metal band's run. This marks the first Death Match win for the Faceless' 'Accelerated Evolution,' and with three more victories, the song will be declared immortal both on Loudwire.com and our official YouTube channel.

Children of Bodom
Children of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. Laiho spoke about the band's 'Halo of Blood Over North America' tour, his recent work with Marty Friedman and Megadeth's influence on his band and more. If you missed Jackie’s show, here’s her full interview with Children of Bodom's Alexi Laiho.
What were you doing when you were 11 years old? Maybe you had just started taking guitar lessons and played the riff to 'Smoke on the Water' for your family at the last holiday party. You're lucky this kid isn't your cousin because you'd never pick that guitar up again
The 2013 Mayhem Festival made a stop in Hartford, Conn., over the weekend where metal heads came together to celebrate all different sub-genres of heavy music. The Musicians Institute Stage had one of the most eclectic line-ups of the bill.
In the metal realm, few bands harness the ability to party like Finnish masters Children of Bodom.
