Suffocation vs. Cannibal Corpse – Death Match

Nuclear Blast / Metal Blade New York death metal icons Suffocation have been decimating every opponent daring enough to take them on in Loudwire’s series of Death Matches. Suffocation need only one more win for the track ‘As Grace Descends’ to be inducted into our Death Match Hall of Fame. The band has beaten out some of the world’s heaviest bands, but we’re giving them perhaps the most legendary, innovative and most importantly, brutal death metal band the world has to offer. Cannibal Corpse released their 12th studio album, ‘Torture,’ last year to much acclaim from the band’s devoted fanatics. In 2013, however, Cannibal Corpse are set to unleash the ‘Dead Human Collection: 25 Years of Death Metal’ box set, containing every record in Corpse’s discography. The all-inclusive box set ( available here for pre-order ) will be released on March 19, and to celebrate, we’re throwing the ‘Torture’ song ‘Demented Aggression’ into this week’s Death Match. Can Suffocation secure their spot as Death Match Hall of Famers? Or will Cannibal Corpse eat their way toward their own Hall of Fame trek? The decision is yours.

Suffocation vs. Dying Fetus – Death Match

Nuclear Blast / Relapse Death metal legends Suffocation  trampled British metalcore band Bring Me the Horizon in our last Death Match. Supported by their blood-bound fans, Suffocation were able to achieve a massive win over their popular opponents. Those same fans demanded a purely brutal competitor for Suffocation to face. You demanded it, and now we deliver. Dying Fetus put out one of last year’s best and heaviest death metal albums, ‘Reign Supreme,’ and also achieved a spot in our Death Match Hall of Fame for the punishing track ‘Subjected to a Beating.’ The band now returns with an insane new video for the technical masterwork ‘Second Skin,’ which just premiered on BloodyDisgusting.com . For those of you with the stomach and iron ear drums for these two bands, we challenge you to choose your favorite of the two tracks. Which of these brutal legends will survive? The choice is yours.

With Hatebreed’s ‘Put It to the Torch’ declared as immortal, we have two vacant spots for this week’s match. Bring Me the Horizon have just released the single ‘Shadow Moses’ from the band’s upcoming fourth studio album, ‘Sempiternal,’ due April 30. The British metalcore heroes have secured their place as kings of the new school, but their opponents mapped out the very blueprint for brutal death metal. Death metal pioneers Suffocation unleashed ‘As Grace Descends’ during the final days of 2012, brutalizing all who had the bravery to listen. Suffocation’s next album, ‘Pinnacle of Bedlam,’ will be unleashed on Feb. 15, and it will surely prove to be one of this year’s heaviest albums.

Hatebreed Unveil ‘Put It to the Torch’ Video

Razor & Tie Connecticut hardcore titans Hatebreed have just released a fiery new video for ‘Put It to the Torch.’ The video consists of everything a Hatebreed fan would ever hope for; violence, blood and mystical tribes of ancient warriors initiating businessmen into their group through gladiator fire battles. ‘Put It to the Torch’ is Hatebreed’s first single from their upcoming sixth studio album, ‘The Divinity of Purpose,’ due out Jan. 29. The newest single from Hatebreed was released in November, and has been praised by fans ever since. ‘Put It to the Torch’ even made it to Loudwire’s Death Match Hall of Fame by defeating Destruction , Nile , the Contortionist and Upon a Burning Body in a series of Death Matches. The new Hatebreed video begins with an irritable young businessman bumping into a metalhead on the street before suddenly facing an attack by mysterious voodoo magic. After being thrown around like a rag doll in the streets, the man encounters a strange tribe in the woods who use fire as fuel for their wizardry. The businessman is handed a giant, flaming mace and is ordered into battle. We won’t give away what happens, but we can only wish that ‘Put It to the Torch’ was more than just over two-minutes long so we could enjoy this video for even longer. Check out Hatebreed’s blazing music video for ‘Put It to the Torch’ in the player below.

Hatebreed vs. The Contortionist – Death Match

Razor & Tie / eOne Congrats to Hatebreed for snatching their second consecutive win in our latest Death Match. The hardcore heroes managed to beat out death metal veterans Nile, but now, we’ve got a band from the new school of technical death to face Hatebreed.

The Indianapolis metallers just released their second full-length, ‘Intrinsic,’ to a notable amount of praise in the metal underground. The band have just released a music video for ‘Dreaming Schematics,’ which delivers a spacey and brutal punch, despite the majority of the track’s vocals being squeaky clean.
