Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Tone Def?

After a couple of weeks of wandering in the wilderness it’s time to return to some Deftones for this week’s head to head. Perhaps not as universally critically acclaimed as it’s predecessors, the Sacramento Californian Alternative Metallers self titled fourth studio album may have some of the bands heaviest work on it up to its

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Paint It Black #2!

As some point in ancient history we put the resurgent The Agony Scene head to head against Melodic Death Metallers The Black Dahlia Murder with their respective versions of “Paint It Black” by The Rolling Stones. The original appeared as a single in advance of the bands 1966 album “Aftermath” and it’s fair to say

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Duran Duran

The subject of today’s head to head is “Come Undone” by Duran Duran. The highly influential New Wave band formed in 1978 and enjoyed huge success throughout the 80s. They’ve been covered multiple times including most notably by Deftones and count among their fans KoRn vocalist Jonathan Davis. The track itself was the second single

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! King Of Pop…?

King Of Pop or not, there aren’t many people on Planet Earth that don’t know about the legacy of Michael Jackson. Back in 1982 he recorded arguably his most important album in “Thriller” with Producer Quincy Jones and even managed to get Eddie Van Halen himself to donate a guitar solo to the albums eventual

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who wins? FIGHT! Prong #2

“Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck” by Prong is a stone wall classic from a classic album in 1994’s “Cleansing” which the band can’t get away with not playing live, unless they want to be arrested for inciting a riot that is. The influence of Prong should not be underestimated with bands like Dry Kill

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Linkin Park!

Not only should Linkin Park need no introductions, but neither should their major label debut “Hybrid Theory“. A Nu-Metal staple from October 2000 that inspired a generation, it launched the hugely successful career of a band that tragically lost Chester Bennington to suicide in July 2017. Whether the remaining members of the band will take

Vs Tuesday: One Song! Two Bands! Who Wins? FIGHT! Iron Maiden

Written by guitarist Steve Harris for their 1982 album “The Number Of The Beast” and considered to be a signature song in the catalog of Iron Maiden, “Hallowed Be Thy Name” and the album was the first to feature then new vocalist Bruce Dickinson and the last to feature drummer Clive Burr. Less so now,

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Depeche Mode

For reasons unknown we’ve always associated Depeche Mode with Christmas and in particular “Enjoy The Silence”. A track that has been covered many a time by all manor of influenced bands and the second single from their seventh studio album “Violator” released in 1990. On the album, Barry Walters of Rolling Stone Magazine complimented its “heavier hooks,

Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins? FIGHT! Prong!

Other than a 5 year hiatus between 1997 and 2002, New York City natives Prong have been mainstays of the Metal scene bringing a blend of Industrial Crossover Thrash and Hardcore to the table across 12 albums and 4 extended plays between 1987’s “Primitive Origins” independent debut album and 2019’s “Age Of Defiance” EP.
