Heavy Metal for Experts Trivia Questions

1. Which musician has never played in the band Iron Maiden?

From Quiz
Name the Odd Man Out - Heavy Metal Musicians

Answer: Paul Samson

While Doug Sampson certainly upped the irons for a couple of years on drums, guitarist Paul Samson never played with Iron Maiden. Samson started his own band, named after himself, which included future Maideners Clive Burr and Bruce Dickinson.

2. In 1986 a group named Militia came out with a record on the Scythe label. What is the title of this record?

From Quiz Obscure Metal Bands And Their Records

Answer: The Sybling

Militia released their record titled "The Sybling" in 1986 on the private Scythe label. The band was from Austin, Texas. The record is a three song EP that was a 12 inch and it played at 45 RPM. Only 100 copies were pressed, making it a true rarity upon release. Today "The Sybling" is one of the most sought after metal records in existence. I saw one sell for $3,000.00 which is $1,000.00 per song. This rarity has been reissued on CD and vinyl with bonus tracks. The vinyl also has a four page insert and poster. These reissues are very affordable. Songs on the original EP are "Objective: Termination" & "Salem Square" on the A side. "The Sybling" is the lone song on the B side and it is divided into five parts. I. "The Birth", II. "The Arrival", III. "The World Accepts Evil", IV. "Evil Through The Ages", and V. "The Second Coming".

3. What was the band the late Layne Staley was in before Alice in Chains?

From Quiz General Metal Quiz

Answer: Alice'N Chainz

Kind of a trick question, it was called the same but spelled different and had completely different members up till he met Jerry Cantrell and the rest is history.

4. It is known that Black Sabbath started as The Polka Tulk Blues Band, but before they finally chose the name Black Sabbath they had another name. It was a grocery related item. What was the name of the band?

Black Sabbath has had great success with many different band mates. They have had Ozzy Ozbourne, Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillian, David Donato, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen and Tony Martin as front men.

5. What band is famous for the song "Dragonaut"?

From Quiz Metal Madness

Answer: Sleep

Sleep was formed in the 1990s in San Jose, CA. Guitarist Matt Pike eventually went on to form High on Fire.

6. Why did hardcore band Minor Threat's singer Ian MacKaye get riled with Slayer over their cover of "Guilty Of Being White"?

From Quiz Heavy Metal Daze!

Answer: He deemed it "offensive"

Tom Araya cheekily changed the lyric to "guilty of being right", possibly to wind up politically-correct MacKaye, and managing. Slayer's tongue-in-cheek approach to accusations of white-supremacy have endlessly annoyed their detractors, and amused their fans.

7. What were Danish thrashers Artillery afraid of in 1985?

From Quiz Long Live the Loud!

Answer: Tomorrow

"The Dark" was a Metal Church album a year later. British culinary legend Marmite was recently banned in Denmark leading to a proposed boycott of all Danish products, which would be awful for the bacon-munching Elephant-swigging metalhead.

From Quiz Metal Quiz

12. Artist: Empyrium Album: "Weyland" Portion of lyrics: "Welch gramvoll Pein verwies mich meinen Pfaden als morgendunstge Schwaden noch ruhten im verschneiten Hain. In weit erstarrter Heide lang schwand die alte Leite" This song is?

From Quiz The Songs of the Arbitrary

Answer: Heidestimmung: Fortgang

A beautiful song, "Heidestimmung: Fortgang" is almost entirely acoustic, though with a very light percussive undertone. The lyrics are entirely in German, and the portion above reads: "He referred me full of pain to my path, as snowy clouds still rested upon the forest. In much solidified Heide, long vanished..." This is an example of folk, or atmospheric folk.

13. What was the last studio album drummer Steve Riley played on before leaving WASP?

From Quiz Heavy Metal Madness

Answer: Inside the Electric Circus

Steve left WASP to join L.A Guns in 1987. He was replaced by former Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali.
