Slayer vs. Cattle Decapitation – Death Match
With the return of the Death Match, Slayer have been carving a beastly path to the Death Match Hall of Fame. After defeating Lamb of God, Slayer went on to best the Black Dahlia Murder in an extremely close battle. Slayer are halfway to the hall, but they've got another topnotch act to defeat first.
After releasing the ridiculously extreme Monolith of Inhumanity in 2012, Cattle Decapitation fans have been seething for the band's follow-up. Cattle Decapitation's upcoming full-length The Anthropocene Extinction will see an Aug. 7 release via Metal Blade and the single "Manufactured Extinct" can be described with one word: DAMN!
"Manufactured Extinct" is devastatingly brutal, much like Cattle Decapitation fans have come to expect from the technical death metal frontrunners. Slayer in the '80s were one of the most insane metal bands on the planet, like Cattle Decapitation is now, so pairing these two acts together is a relative super-brawl.
Will Slayer continue dominating with "Repentless" or can Cattle Decapitation take over with "Manufactured Extinct"? Your votes will decide who continues on. Cast your ballot in the poll below!
