In a battle of Black Sabbath drummers, the band's original skin basher Bill Ward defeated Vinny Appice in Round 1 of our Greatest Metal Drummer competition. Ward now moves onto Round 2 to face an equally legendary drummer from another god-like metal act.

Another two heavy metal drumming legends faced off in Round 1, representing the iconic acts Iron Maiden and Motorhead. Late Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr unleashed the beast against Mikkey Dee in our competition, creating an incredibly exciting Round 2 matchup. Now, the late Burr is matched against the legendary Bill Ward!
