I got 14, not bad since I have no clue haha. If it was yellow box I would be screwed...

I only heard songs of metallica, korn, korpiklaani, alestorm, and sepultura. Consciously that is, I am bound to have heard parts of songs when passing someone, or switching channels etc. And that I know what name goes with the band, and might even be able to mention the name of a song haha, I am so bad with band and song names in every genre (and with genres :D )

Nice quiz. I'm no scholar of metal, but isn't speed metal a fairly popular subgenre? I was surprised to not see it here.

Thanks. I was thinking of adding it, but either I didn't find a proper genre pair for it or proper bands that would be immediately recognizable as speed metal specifically, I forget which...

Will have to edit it in later, or to make a second part with that and more obscure stuff.
