March Metal Madness 2013 has progressed into Round 2, and the Stage Dive Region has left us with some legendary pairings. These next two bands defeated their opponents during Round 1, and are looking to get even closer to the Championship round and gaining the distinction of labeling one of their works as the greatest ever.

Metallica's 'Master of Puppets' album stomped out Napalm Death's 'Scum' in Round 1 by a substantial margin. Metallica were crowned as champions after the 2012 edition of March Metal Madness concluded, and the 'Big 4' leaders are looking to gain yet another gold medal this year.

Iconic heavy metal/hard rock act Motorhead were able to beat out death metal architects Death. 'Ace of Spades' knocked out 'Human' in a tough battle, and now Lemmy and the boys have their sights set on a win over Metallica.
