Today's battle was the toughest, hardest-won one yet! In one corner, God Forbid's "Earthsblood"; in the other, Nile's "Those Whom The Gods Detest." Right away, Nile kicked ass and took names with their hyperkinetic style of complicated heaviness. Against that onslaught, God Forbid simply wasn't able to compete with Nile punch-for-punch... at first. But in the long run, "Earthsblood" proved itself to be quite the grower, and it was God Forbid's more well-rounded, melodic yet heavy approach that carried the day. Keep in mind, Nile definitely brought their A game with "Those Whom The Gods Detest," and it's worth listens for sure. It's just not enough to bring it to the next round. Congrats, God Forbid!
The Arsies are done for the weekend, and will be back on Monday with Slayer going against Shadows Fall. Interesting!
