Slipknot vs. Rob Zombie – 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, Quarterfinals

2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl Quarterfinals If you can’t get amped up with these two songs vying to advance in this 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl matchup, then you might want to check your pulse to see if you’re still alive. It’s Slipknot ‘s ‘Wait and Bleed’ squaring off against  Rob Zombie ‘s ‘Superbeast’ in the quarterfinals. Though P.O.D.’s ‘Boom’ may be an NFL stadium favorite, the track proved to be no match to Slipknot’s ‘Wait and Bleed,’ which received 70 percent of the vote in the first round. Singer Corey Taylor ‘s pent up angst on the track is just waiting to be released and the act of psyching yourself up to pound pads with an opposing player is not uncommon for an NFL player. Meanwhile, Rob Zombie barely escaped round one with ‘Superbeast’ receiving just over 50 percent of the vote over Five Finger Death Punch’s ‘Back for More,’ making it the closest match of the first round. Zombie’s highly aggressive, hard-driving track can raise your heartbeats per minute rather easily. But does this ‘Superbeast’ have what it takes to best Slipknot? Here’s your chance to let your voice be heard. Vote in the poll below between now and Jan. 30 at 10AM ET. You can vote once per hour for your favorite between Slipknot and Rob Zombie.

System of a Down vs. Korn – 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, Round 1

There is such a thing as too much adrenaline pumping and this 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl pairing will definitely hype you up. We’ve got the frenetic and somewhat schizophrenic System of a Down favorite ‘Psycho’ squaring off against Korn ‘s monstrous rocker ‘Freak on a Leash.’ In this fast-paced, need-it-now world there’s probably no shortage of football players that can identify with the “ psycho, groupie, cocaine, crazy ” world that Serj Tankian sings about in the band’s ‘Toxicity’ album favorite ‘Psycho.’ Regardless of the lyrical content, the speedy rocker has plenty of energy to spare. The other side of this battle is Korn’s ‘Freak on a Leash,’ a monstrous track about someone ready to unleash the demon inside. There’s just something about the spirit of competition that changes people, and that “freak” can get unleashed as soon as the whistle blows. So which of these tracks gets you more amped up for football? Listen to both System of a Down and Korn below, then vote in our 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl poll. Voting in Round 1 concludes Sunday, Jan. 27, at 11:59PM ET, so vote now and vote often before the deadline arrives.

Pantera vs. Drowning Pool – 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, Round 1

There may be no more testosterone-fueled pairing in our 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl than this one. On one hand you’ve got the in-your-face aggression of Pantera versus the all-out brutality of Drowning Pool , and you get to determine which band’s track gets you more fired up for football. Pantera’s ‘F—ing Hostile’ is exactly what the name says. Between the amped up guitar play of Dimebag Darrell and the speedy drumming of Vinnie Paul , there’s no way this song could do anything but get you hyped up into some sort of frenzy. Add in Phil Anselmo ‘s lyrics of aggression and you’ve got the makings of a song that gives you pent up energy to spare. Meanwhile, Drowning Pool’s ‘Bodies’ has long been associated with sporting events due to the aggressive nature of its lyrics. With late vocalist Dave Williams’ repetitive chorus begging, “ Let the bodies hit the floor/ Let the bodies hit the floor ,” this song seems the perfect fit to soundtrack a massive collision, or, at the very least, to unleash some pent up fury. So which one of these high-energy rockers will advance in the 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl? You tell us. Listen to both tracks below, then vote for your favorite in the poll provided.

Best Korn Album – Readers Poll

Epic It’s been a roller-coaster ride for Korn , but the band has been one of the most productive outfits since arriving on the scene with their 1994 debut disc. This Loudwire Readers Poll asks you to determine which of Korn’s albums is their best. Korn remained still somewhat of an underground band with a growing following with their first two albums. The band’s self-titled debut spawned the hit song ‘Blind’ and fan favorite, ‘Chutes and Ladders.’ Meanwhile, 1996′s ‘Life Is Peachy’ followed with the breakout song ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.’ But it wasn’t until their third album that they became a massive band. 1998′s ‘Follow the Leader’ provided the group with staple hits ‘Got the Life’ and ‘Freak on a Leash.’ The following year ‘Issues’ gave us a trio of singles — ‘Falling Away From Me,’ ‘Make Me Bad,’ and ‘Somebody Someone.’ The 21st century has brought us more solid efforts from Korn. The 2002 album ‘Untouchables’ kept the momentum going with ‘Here to Stay’ and ‘Thoughtless’ enjoying some success. In 2003, ‘Take a Look in the Mirror’ provided fans with ‘Did My Time’ and ‘Right Now,’ but ‘Y’all Want a Single’ was the band’s statement on the changes in the music industry. After breaking for a hits collection, 2005′s ‘See You on the Other Side’ gave us ‘Twisted Transistor’ and ‘Coming Undone,’ and they followed with their untitled album, which featured ‘Evolution’ and ‘Hold On.’ Their last two albums found Korn taking two very different directions. ‘Korn III: Remember Who You Are,’ had them trying to reclaim their early sound, with ‘Oildale’ being the main single. In 2011, the group went completely the opposite direction with ‘The Path of Totality,’ a dubstep-infused effort that spawned ‘Get Up’ and ‘Narcissistic Cannibal.’ That’s ten original albums in 19 years, not counting their greatest hits album or ‘Unplugged’ release. Now it’s your turn to tell us which disc is best. Vote for the best Korn album in the Readers Poll below. Sorry, you need to have javascript running to see this poll.
