Ready for Quiz #37?

What did you say?
Are you talkin’ to me?!


Quiz Rules/Format
(Same as last year, feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Here goes!

Verbalize the Positive

The clean-tone verse guitar in the Demon Knight edit of Cemetery Gates, terrific!

  1. 500. I knew the album title but not much else about them – I always get them mixed up with Sepultura.

  2. 500 for me, 400 for Mika. If you’re going to bring up Walk, it should be as the ECW entrance music of one Rob Van Dam

  3. Maybe 100. Maybe not.

  4. 200 although I had an idea just didn’t know the band name aaaagggghhhh

  5. Harrison permalink

    500 please

  6. So 500 it hurts

  7. 400 points please!!!! I dug “Walk” for a bit, but then I got sick of this band afterwards. It’s very rare for me to stick with a band for a long time lol.

  8. My least favourite aspects of heavy music all in one place. 500 please

  9. 500 for me this week. Not a band I’m terribly familiar with, though I just this week listened to the album in the first clue (didn’t particularly enjoy it).

  10. 500 for me!! I don’t own anything but I knew the album and the band member names.

  11. jprobichaud permalink

    I was close at the 400 clue because I’d heard of the guitarist in question but couldn’t place him with his group. Got it at 300.

    • I’m pleased the placement arrived at 300, John – and happy belated birthday as well!
      Did you get a score last week?

      • jprobichaud permalink

        No, somehow I missed doing last week’s quiz. I guess I was preoccupied with other things.

  12. 200 for me today.

  13. An easy 500 for me! I’m reading Rex’s book right now!

  14. Zack permalink

    500 please. I used to be really into these guys.

  15. 500 please. Drummer’s name and name of the album rang all the right bells!

  16. 500 pounds of metal Sir!

  17. Paul permalink

    100 – had no clue. I felt like you were trying so hard to help with the clues and I was still clueless. 😀

  18. 500, I’ll echo Steve on this one too.

  19. 200! And how are you, Geoff?

    • Life is good, Amrita – hope you’re in good health, it’s nice to hear from you!

      • Yes, I’m good. Posted a blog the other day after more than a year! Looking forward to spend more time here.

      • Glad to hear it (and soon, I’ll be glad to read it)!

  20. Ohhhh 500 cranked to 11 and on repeat!!

  21. Sorry I missed this one…400
