Today, after much delay, the Quarterfinals round of the 2010 Arsies kicked off, and what a match it was! Two titans of plodding attitude squared off, with Isis coming out swinging at Alice In Chains! Isis started strong, sounding more self-assured than ever. Alice In Chains was not so easily bested, however, also sounding fresh and vital. And yet, after just a few weeks, "Black Gives Way To Blue" couldn't keep its staying power, while "Wavering Radiant" just keeps getting better and better. A decisive win for Isis, who goes on to the Semifinals. Well done!
