This one if still unanswered from me. Added another part to the 'cryptic' bit, with a more generic hint that may help in the spoiler tags. Don't know if it's made it too easy but we'll see.

Fictional 80s/90s jock doesn’t want tea - the fictional jock was in a show was set in a US high school.
Actor Christian also doesn't want tea.
Spoiler: show
Influential band who called it quits in the not too distant past

This band has been known for making the same album over and over again, but those who've given their albums a chance will realize that each album has its own special style that actually makes each album stand out from each other.


Could be Motorhead, could be Bolt Thrower.

It's not either of those bands.

Another hint: They play bestial black/war metal.

The first band name that immediately came to mind was Darkspace - just because of this specific way they named their albums, and all of their albums also have similar artwork + similar atmosphere of the music:

all of their albums are titled Dark Space, differentiated only by a Roman numeral indicating order of release

Oh... Well, I remember there was a thread about something similar on MA forum: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=129509&hilit=Revenge ?

Let it be said that both "Love" and "Suicide" are (great) bands, though I figure that's not what you meant. :D


though the band's name is one word, you will have to put it together from two separate words, each springing from the two words i have given... :D

Indeed. AC Slater from Saved by the Bell is the fictional jock, and the picture below, which I stumbled upon years ago, is what influenced my initial clue. The actor is of course Christian Slater.

Another round (although some seem to be too obvious):

3. Extra-rhotic sun in flames.

4. Twist Thomas (but don't twist first and last names).

:) I'll let that pass because it's infinitely more fitting than what I was thinking of. So, it's "Obituary" – although it wasn't originally. :-D It was:

Okay so I'll try my hand, just to pass some time since, seeing some of them on this thread, they'll likely be quite easy:

1. one of the people in a calendar who somehow has a strange obsession with death
2. a Latin word roughly translatable as "from the dead"
3. in war-related videogames, the common name of the shadows (or mist) that hide the unknown (or too far) parts of a map to the player
4. the lady who lived for some time with seven short men... pronounced with a German accent
5. the book that follows Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins
6. "I... am... your father"
7. that exercise with frogs US schools like so much (at least according to TV shows)

For a couple of non-metal ones, as a bonus:

- a mathematical operation involving a number slightly smaller than the answer to everything
- wealthy lads who take hallucinogenic drugs

50% correct. Pay attention to the "calendar" thing (hoping it's a thing also outside of my country...).

TheBurningOfSodom wrote:

I may have gone too far with that last one since it's not even so famous and the original thread required 'metal bands' soooo - a hint: the name is almost word-for-word synonyms to what I wrote, and it's best known as an acronym. But!, it's not the one you're probably thinking of, if it's usually associated with the drawing of a man in a circle (that is actually on the Archives).
If nobody gets it, I'll reveal it in some time.

Is this correct?

That's correct! :thumbsup:

Ah, it's good, thanks for the answer, - I wanted to know if I understood it correctly.
I was not sure about the answer, because I am almost unfamiliar with these subgenres of metal music (they are way too extreme and aggressive (both musically and lyrically/aesthetically) for me tbh), and I have never listened to any albums by Revenge so I don't know anything about the specifics/differences of the styles on the albums from their discography (except that the music is very repetitive in general and is mostly very fast - that's all I remembered from that thread).

This game can be interesting not only because you can make the descriptions and/or guess band names and learn some new words (and the meanings of those words)/facts about something in general, but also because it is about favorite metal bands, and there is a wide variety of (sub)genres and styles in musical preferences of MA members who post here, - so it can also be a motivation for checking out/learning about some metal bands/or even some subgenres/styles of metal music that you have not heard of before/or didn't give close attention to, + and it can also refresh your memory and remind you of some metal bands/subgenres that you forgot about.
This is great. :)

new riddles:

between two Destructions

off-colour deity

follows shipwrecks and does not allow dishonour

big cheese searches for evil women

not unplugged Gandalf

extremish gardening with fast dude

audio yard

time not displayed on the clock

not the party type

fellowship of cheap beers

the canine collection of edgar's former drummer


I'm also gonna up the ante (well, sort of) and use an image to say the band's name. I'll be really really heartbroken if the first person who sees this does not immediately identify the band :D

I'm gonna up the ante (well, sort of) and use an image to say the band's name. I'll be really really heartbroken if the first person who sees this does not immediately identify the band :D

That's a good idea!

Hints and clues are in the works. When they're ready I'll edit this post.

Edit:

General clue: all four bands play metal of the American variety; stylistic keywords: US power metal, heavy metal, doom(-ish heavy metal).

1. Legendary English punk - off the record.
Clue: They all called him nasty. That says it all about him, doesn't it?

2. Sounds a bit like the co-founder and president of Atlantic Records and is the pope's fave.
Clue: Two words: 1st: almost a homophone, 2nd: canonised.

5. One's thread was cut by Atropos a long time ago, the other's being watched with Argus eyes.
Clue: The names are, perhaps, more insightful than the sentence they're embedded in. Focus on the names. Slash would probably disclose the solution, Axl wouldn't.

6. Asterix hasn't come across it yet.
Clue: Not yet (17 September). :wink:
