Obituary vs. The Acacia Strain – Death Match
Obituary are halfway to our Death Match Hall of Fame. In a close battle between leading old school and new school extreme metal bands, the veterans of Obituary claimed victory over Misery Index. Only two wins separate Obituary from the Hall, but they must defeat another prominent group of young and extreme heavyweights.
The Acacia Strain recently debuted the new track 'Cauterizer' to give fans a piece of their upcoming seventh studio album, 'Coma Witch.' The song is deathcore at its center, but also takes the groove and slam influence of classic death metal.
