Death Metal Battle Royale Round 2: Format

For Round 2 battles, I’m tweaking the format a little. Head-to-head comparisons between albums will now be made based on a series of objective/subjective criteria. Depending on how the albums fare against each other in this regard, a point will be added or withheld from their score. In case of indecision, both albums will be awarded one point each; in case of a tie, the result of the poll will be honored.

The criteria are as follows:

  1. Riff logic and cohesion
  2. Melodic contiguity
  3. Role of percussion
  4. Progressive aspiration
  5. Success as an album of songs
  6. Ideological/Philosophical significance as death metal
  7. Emotional resonance

May the best album win.
