Death vs. Slayer – Metal Madness 2017, Round 2
The Devil Horn Region is living up to its name with a fierce matchup between Death's Scream Bloody Gore and Slayer's Show No Mercy in Round 2 of the Metal Madness tournament to determine the Best Debut Metal Album of All Time.
In Round 1, Death faced the equally influential Venom and their Welcome to Hell debut. The Chuck Schuldiner fans came out in strong support, sending Scream Bloody Gore to Round 2 with more than 60 percent of the votes.
Slayer paved the way for death metal and were matched up against one of the genre's best in Morbid Angel. Show No Mercy acted more of a mission statement than an album title in Round 1, amassing nearly four-fifths of the voting total.
