It’s a New Year and a new Cage Match. In our last matchup before the holiday hiatus, Australian rock band Dead Letter Circus came out on top with their single ‘One Step’ against Crossfade. Will they be able to do it again against our next challenger?

In Flames heat things up with their new single ‘Where the Dead Ships Dwell’ off of their latest album ‘Sounds of a Playground Fading.’ Check out our song review of the new tune here. This group of Swedes are gearing up for their North American tour with Trivium, Veil of Maya and Kyng.

Will Dead Letter Circus reign supreme or will their path to victory go up In Flames? Get in on the action by listening to both songs below and voting for your favorite:

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!
