From the Prog Metal Conference we have the survivor of a death match against the might Samla's!! Angry

From Poland

RIVERSIDE!!!!



From Rio/Avant Conference we have another surivor of a 1st round death matchup. Knocking off the Soft's!!!

From the good 'ol USA

FRANK ZAPPA/M.O.I



Vegas has installed Zappa as a slight 10 vote favorite. Can Riverside pull the upset. Most certainly. We shall see!
I find your lack of Bassoon disturbing.....

Zappa easily, would have been a much harder call against Samla

Riverside, just to spice things up. Love Hot Rats and Make A Jazz Noise Here, but, we got to have some fun somehow.

Loads of respect for Zappa and all he accomplished but I am going for Riverside on this one. Given the staggering amount of output from Frank I really only enjoy a very small percentage of it. The percentage is much higher with Riverside.

Zappa all the way. Riverside, like Opeth, have been going downhill for a while.

Ok, no offense intended, but one of the most original acts ever against a yawn-inducing modern prog act? Really? Easily, Zappa...

Zappa for historical reasons.

I don't like any of both, but Zappa means something.

Zappa may be a genius but I don't like his music.

Riverside made prog metal respectable, so they easily get my vote.

That Riverside song is still cringe-worthy. Though they're better than Zappa, for me. 

I prefer Lunatic Soul to Riverside actually. While Riverside is a very accessible progressive metal band, they still lack something special for me to listen to constantly. Don't get me wrong, ADHD is fantastic along with their other albums, but they can sound stale on certain days.

Voted Zappa but really not fair this post tho' both bands are so different plus Zappa is Zappa "paid his dues if you will" I feel bad for Riverside because they are really good but different and are competing against an icon  Hug

Voted against both of these in the first round. And I'll vote against Riverside again. Easy one for Zappa.
