There's never an end to the classic "Maiden or Priest?" question, but here we're about to solve one part of that argument once and for all. Iron Maiden's figurehead squares off against Judas Priest's Painkiller in the Quarterfinals!

Eddie has been on a warpath through the first two rounds, obliterating both of his opponents by capturing over 90 percent of the votes each time. First it was S.O.D.'s Sargent D. who was shown the door before Quiet Riot's Man with the Iron Mask needed to be put back on the stretcher. Can Eddie continue his destruction and make it to the Semifinals?

Painkiller doesn't think so. One of metal's most triumphant mascots has now defeated Helloween's Jack O. Lantern and Children of Bodom's Roy in successive rounds. Both mascots are practically an extra member of their respective bands, but have been swiftly handled. This trend could spell doom for Eddie.

Voting for this round ends on Tuesday, March 31 at 8:00 AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure that your favorite metal mascot wins!
