In mid-August, another round of polling closed and your votes have determined who won and who lost in the first half of the Sweet Sixteen of Heavy Metal Madness! It was exciting to see the results unfold, as once again there were upsets, and close matches that came down to the last couple votes on the last day of polling.
In the Classic Metal/Thrash Block:
METALLICA beat IRON MAIDEN 27-22,
and MEGADETH came from behind to beat JUDAS PRIEST 27-25.
While in the Hardcore/Metalcore Block:
TOOL failed to hang onto their lead in the last day of voting as they lost to SYSTEM OF A DOWN 23-26,
and DISTURBED pulled a dominating upset against AVENGED SEVENFOLD 26-18!
Don't miss your chance to vote in the next round!
