One of metal's biggest tours hit New York City on Friday night (Feb. 7) with Machine Head, Suicide Silence and Darkest Hour nearly blowing the roof off the Best Buy Theater.

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.

Thanks to their insane fans, Suicide Silence's 'You Only Live Once' moves on to its second bout in the Death Match.
