With 12 Stones entering Loudwire’s Cage Match Hall of Fame, it’s time for two new bands and their new tunes to duke it out in a fresh new matchup.

Deftones take the Cage Match by storm with their brand new single ‘Leathers’ off of their seventh studio record ‘Koi No Yokan’ due out Nov. 13 via Reprise Records. The band is also gearing up for a headlining trek in the states. For a full list of tour dates, go here.

Metallica heat things up with their rendition of Deep Purple’s ‘When a Blind Man Cries,’ which is their contribution to the album ‘Re-Machined – A Tribute to Deep Purple’s Machinehead.’ Other artists who are on the tribute disc include Iron Maiden, Black Label Society and Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach, just to name a few.

Rules of Cage Match:

Fans can vote once per hour for their favorite song. 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!
