Rounds 9-12: Megadeth Vs. All That Remains, Limp Bizkit Vs. Dope, In Flames Vs. Cryptopsy, Asking Alexandria Vs. Abigail Williams
Yesterday’s match-ups turned out, once again, to be largely facile fights: Cradle of Filth stole Motionless in White’s make-up and made them cry, Six Feet Under turned Emmure into manure, and Volbeat kicked In This Moment out of this universe. The closest race was that between Killswitch Engage and Trivium, and even that wasn’t so close.
Hopefully, today’s bouts will be a little more competitive. Vote for the winners below! The polls for these rounds close at 4:30 pm EST tomorrow, Thursday, July 11.
MEGADETH VS. ALL THAT REMAINS
Do you prefer your crazy right wing gun nut ginger or auto-tuned? That is the question which faces voters when Dave Mustaine and his employees square-off against Phil Labonte, Oli wasshisname, Jean whasshername, and the other two guys in All That Remains. Which band shall advance to the next round? Make your choice!
LIMP BIZKIT VS. DOPE
We suspect that who readers vote for in this round will come down to whether or not they were bullies or bullied in high school. (We’ll let you guess which bands represents which demographic.) But one thing is for sure: regardless of who wins this fight… we all lose!!!
Here’s another fine case of two once-revered bands who have taken heaps of crap for making changes to their sound. The difference between them, really, comes down to their funny accents. Which do you find more amusing: Swedish accents, or French Canadian ones? Vote now!!!
Asking Alexandria think they’re rockstars, and they’re wrong; Abigail Williams think they’re black metal, and they’re wrong. Which offensive is less, y’know, offensive? Rally behind the superior band below!!!
