The "Hitler game" is a wikipedia game where you are given an article, and you need to reach the Hitler article via links in the text.

I propose a metallum version of this game: you are given two bands and you need to find a way between them via similar artists tab of the band's page. You should try making this way as short as possible. Please don't add new similar bands while you play this game though. :)

Example: I am given Nightwish - Burzum. Nightwish - Sinergy - Children of Bodom - Wintersun - Windir - Enslaved - Burzum. Not the best solution, but I am not that great of a metalhead either.

Is anyone interested in this kind of game? You need to find a way between the bands, then you give your own pair of bands. I'll start: Iron Maiden - Darkthrone. This one is probably going to be too easy though. :)

It's true, Iron Maiden are six degrees of separation from Hitler.

Iron Maiden > Paul Di'Anno (Paul Di'Anno)
Paul Di'Anno > Ashen Light (Andrey Ischenko)
Ashen Light > Cavandish (Father Sergiy)
Cavandish > Hidden Time (Alexander "Pers" Persiyanov)
Hidden Time > Edenbeast(Mikhail "Michael" Korneev)
Edenbeast > Eclipse (Alexey "Alex" Kuznetsov)
Eclipse's album was engineered by Dr. Goebbels of the band Hitler.

Easy game:
Iron Maiden -> Tank -> Venom -> Darkthrone

Let's see
Mayhem -> Van Canto

Mayhem - Venom - Hell - Iced Earth - Hammerfall - Sonata Arctica - Nightwish - Epica - Apocalyptica - Van Canto
So basically black metal - thrash - speed - power - symphonic power.

Let's do something more extreme. Torsofuck - Within Temptation.

Torsofuck -> Mortician -> Incantation -> Demigod -> Sentenced -> Paradise Lost -> Theatre of Tragedy -> Within Temptation

Sentenced is in the related artists tab for Demigod but you have to click "see more" for it, does that count? Also the case for Paradise Lost -> Theatre of Tragedy.

Finding a path between two bands is pretty easy, I think a better way to play the game would be to keep up one challenge for, say, 24 hours and have people compete on who can find the shortest path within that timeframe. Anyway, for now:
Fairyland -> Sunn O)))

Fairyland > Rhapsody > Númenor > Bal-Sagoth > Emperor > Ihsahn > Ulver > Sunn O)))

Númenor's change in style made that much easier than it would have been otherwise.

Holy shit, I've actually done this quite often in the past to kill time! I came up with two really tricky ones but I love this game so much I just did them myself. I want to see other efforts, though.

Wilderun > Amaka Hahina
Wintersun > Happy Days

Gave a shot to the second one:

Wintersun > Xanthochroid > Emperor > Satyricon > Darkthrone > Celtic Frost > Triptykon > Bethlehem > Silencer > Happy Days
This is the shortest reasonable one i could find.

Wintersun > Bal-Sagoth > Cradle of Filth > Nachtblut > Eisregen > Bethlehem > Silencer > Happy Days
This is even shorter with only 7 steps but requires going from CoF to Nachtblut, which is a bit of a stretch as they only have 5 similarity points.

EDIT: Just found shorter one:
Wintersun > Eternal Tears of Sorrow > Amorphis > Katatonia > Forgotten Tomb > Silencer > Happy Days. Only 6 steps, lol

I remember a thread like this from quite a while back. I was surprised how quickly you could connect bands that are almost completely opposite in every way.

You could probably do it shorter than this but for here is what I got for Wilderun to Amaka Hahina:

Wilderun > Opeth > Akercocke > Anaal Nathrakh > Gnaw Their Tongues > Abruptum > Moëvöt > Amaka Hahina

I play this game on my own but the way I do it is by clicking the random band button and trying to find a way back to Black Sabbath.

You might like the website BandToBand which connects bands via shared members. It can make for some amusing connections, eg. Darkthrone to Cypress Hill in 5 steps.

Mortiis -> Burzum -> Darkthrone -> Celtic Frost -> Obituary -> Death -> Control Denied -> Pharaoh -> Iron Maiden -> Helloween -> Stratovarius -> Kamelot -> Myrath -> Orphaned Land

There is probably a shorter way but I don't feel like finding it.

Licht erlischt... -> Thin Lizzy

Wow, good effort! I was thinking personally that Paradise Lost would prove a quicker link since they have many different styles and Orphaned Land started off as a doom/death group.

Several of those are below the 3 recommendation threshold but I'll give it to ya. I forgot that Latitude Egress was the continuation of Licht erlischt...

Tristania -> Draconian -> Swallow The Sun -> The Morningside -> Agalloch -> Wolves in the Throne Room -> Abigail Williams -> Make Them Suffer


When Mine Eyes Blacken -> Twisted Sister
