Gojira vs. Enslaved – Death Match
The battle between Gojira and As I Lay Dying became pretty fierce in its closing hours, with the Death Match songs being separated by less than a one-percent difference. As the match came to an end, Gojira received a huge push from their fans, clinching the competition in its final moments. With two wins under their belt, Gojira and 'The Axe' will now face one of black metal's most legendary acts.
Enslaved enter this week's Death Match with their new track 'Veilburner' from the band's upcoming 12th album, 'RIITIIR.' The veteran Norwegian black metallers have been going strong since 1991 and have been releasing a steady stream of albums since their 1994 debut, 'Vikingligr Veldi.'
