Tool vs. Judas Priest – Metal Madness 2013, Round 2
It's time to bring the heavy! Tool's '90s classic 'Ænima' squares off against Judas Priest's landmark album 'Screaming for Vengeance' in Round 2 of the 2013 March Metal Madness' Devil Horn Region in the battle to determine the greatest metal album ever.
Tool had a little tougher time getting out of Round 1, but still won with a convincing 67 percent for their 'Ænima' album over Lamb of God's 'Ashes of the Wake.' The band's 1996 album was as fresh as anything coming out that year, giving audiences such new favorites as 'Stinkfist,' 'Forty Six & 2' and 'H.' 'Stinkfist' actually won the 1998 Grammy for Best Metal Performance.
On the other half of this match, you've got Judas Priest's classic 'Screaming for Vengeance.' The disc took 85 percent of the vote over Suffocation's 'Effigy of the Forgotten' in Round 1. But will they have as easy of a time against Tool? This album includes such favorites as 'The Hellion,' 'Electric Eye,' '(Take These) Chains,' and of course, the extremely catchy, 'You've Got Another Thing Comin'.'
