Slayer vs. The Black Dahlia Murder – Death Match
In an extremely close battle between metal titans, Slayer were able to defeat Lamb of God in last week's Death Match. Both bands' fans came out to support their favorite act, but only one song can move on, and that song is Slayer's "Repentless."
The title track to Slayer's upcoming 11th studio album is a ripper, and with three more consecutive wins, it will gain induction into our Death Match Hall of Fame. However, we've got another new-school powerhouse to face the thrash legends.
The Black Dahlia Murder's seventh full-length, Abysmal, will see a Sept. 18 release. The band has already shared "Vlad, Son of the Dragon" and has received a seriously positive response in return. "Vlad" is the first track chosen to represent Abysmal, which could point to a punishing collection of tracks to be heard.
