The Acacia Strain vs. Ill Nino – Death Match

Rise / Victory

With another victory claimed by the Acacia Strain, the band have racked up three consecutive wins in Loudwire’s Death Match. With one more, the band’s track ‘Victims of the Cave’ will be declared immortal in our Death Match Hall of Fame. The Acacia Strain have managed to put away Parkway Drive, Pig Destroyer and Fear Factory, but their greatest challenge lies in this final bout.

Ill Nino recently recruited Emmure vocalist Frankie Palmeri to contribute to the new track ‘La Epidemia.’ The track from Ill Nino’s sixth full-length album uses Palmeri to explore a heavier sound, with the dual vocal attack giving the song a more pulverizing appeal. Ill Nino’s ‘Epidemia’ album was released in October through Victory Records.

Can the Acacia Strain pull off one final victory to cement their place in the Death Match Hall of Fame? Or will Ill Nino snatch away a win to begin their own trail to the Hall? The choice is yours. Vote for your favorite track below!

(This Death Match ends on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 10AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
