With X Japan and their song ‘Jade’ earning five victories and entering the Cage Match Hall of Fame, we are starting fresh with a new battle featuring two iconic bands facing off against each other. Thrash-metal legends Anthrax and industrial pioneers Ministry go head to head with their brand-new singles.

Anthrax enter the Cage Match with their latest single ‘I’m Alive’ off of their album ‘Worship Music.’ With rattling bass lines and a battering drum beat accompanied by frontman Joey Belladonna’s elevating vocals, this song provides further proof that Anthrax are as strong as ever. Check out our review of the tune here.

Ministry have surfaced again with their political anthem ‘99%’ off of their upcoming record ‘Relapse.’ As vocalist Al Jourgensen spits out venomous lyrics, Ministry show that they’re back and ready to demolish anyone in their way. Take a look at Loudwire's song review of the track here.

Will ‘99%’ of Ministry's fans rally in this Cage Match or will Anthrax fans worship the band's single ‘I’m Alive’? Get in on the action in this epic Cage Match and vote for your favorite song below:

Rules of Cage Match:

There are no rules … except this one: If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight cage matches, it is retired to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With so many great songs out there, we have to give other bands a chance!
