I would say Bathory, since Venom was really more thrash at first.

And what about Twisted Sister?

Too many of those questions have multiple answers. You can't ask something like "which band helped found the cross-over movement"? There are a shit-ton of answers to that.

They're too vague. You have to ask things that only have one answer.

ravenheart

Or where more answers get more points up to a maximum. Like, name all the official members of Black Sabbath. One point for each.

Q) What band upstarted the black metal movement?
A) Venom.

Could also be Mercyful Fate or several other bands.

Q) What band helped found crossover metal?
A) Suicidal Tendencies.

Could also be DRI (after all they did coin the term crossover)

Q) Metalcore is a hybrid of what two genres?
A) Hardcore punk and extreme metal.

No it's a hybrid of hardcore and extreme metal. If it was part hardcore punk then it would be a mix of Black Flag and At The Gates, which it clearly isn't.

:eyes: You know what, if I was making a quiz for myself, all your contributions would've been on there before I would've decided to create this thread, but since it's for them I'm trying to keep it simple.

The prize is personalized autographs from every band on Mayhem, and they'd do all these just to get Dave Mustaine to say hi to them on paper :lol:

Here some good questions:

Why does groove metal have no groove?

Why won't people acknowledge that Anvil have no career for a reason and a silly movie won't change that?

What the fuck is Mustaine's problem?

I think he has a permanent boot, drumstick or Converse up his ass from when Metallica kicked him out of the band.
