Death Metal and Diablo III: Reaper of Souls have a surprising number of things in common. They are both focused on an aggressive, flashy and horror-filled entertainment. In fact, they may have a little too much in common.

While playing through the Reaper of Souls expansion, I came across a Legendary weapon with a name that sounded like it was opening for the Metal Injection Tour.

Think you can tell the difference? Read the question and click on the link with your answer to see if you’re right. There’s 10 questions in all and make sure to keep your own score!

Question #1: 8 Foot Sativa

D3 Loot: I totally pwned the Reaper of Souls with that bad boy.

Death Metal Band: Of course it’s New Zealand’s bad boys that have been through the line-up changes from hell.

Sorry, mate, 8 Foot Sativa is a Death Metal band that hails from New Zealand and goes through more line-up changes than Myriam the Mystic goes through advice. And that’s saying a lot.

Question #2: Destruction Crypt

D3 Loot: This 2-Handed Mace is coveted by those on a 786th Torment I rift run.

Death Metal Band: The horror film-style subject matter of their music is very controversial, with song names like “Hammer Smashed Face”.

Sorry, the lead singer of Deicide burned an upside-down cross into his forehead. This is a ring drop designed to taunt us with never seeing the rest of the set.

Question #4: Hellhammer

D3 Loot: A sought-after Legendary Mighty Weapon from The Butcher, this item’s flavor text reads: “Only the dead have seen the end of war.”

Death Metal Band: Formed in May 1982 under the name Hammerhead, which was soon changed to Hellhammer.

Wrong! According the Encyclopaedia Mettallum:

“Hellhammer are widely credited as pioneers of extreme metal (black metal in particular) along with Venom, Bathory and a few others. Tom G Warrior and Martin Ain formed Celtic Frost the day after Hellhammer disbanded.”

Question #5: Abaddon Incarnate

D3 Loot: A Legendary off-hand Wizard Orb that can chain Electrocute to additional enemies.

Death Metal Band: Formed in 1991 out of Dublin, Ireland, this band is known for playing fast death metal with grindcore elements.

image

Wrong! Behemoth is responsible for the Polish extreme metal underground. Get your facts straight, nephalem.

Question #8: Death Raptor

D3 Loot: A rare Demon Hunter only quiver.

Death Metal Band: Everyone’s favorite Adult Swim cartoon death metal band.

image

Wrong! Everyone knows that everyone’s favorite cartoon death metal band is Dethklok. (Not to be confused with Deathlok.)

Question #9: Inscrutable Menace

D3 Loot: A rare Two-Handed Sword.

Death Metal Band: A Finnish quintet known for melodic riffs that surpass even fellow Finns Kalmah and Norther.

image

Wrong! How can you confuse Children of Bodom with a piece of virtual loot??

Question #10: Warlock’s Crack

D3 Loot: A rare Crusader’s flail with a snicker-worthy name.

Death Metal Band: The founding fathers of death metal.

image

Correct! I mean, really, that was a total gimme.

Scoring:

1-3: Get back to farming, n00b.
4-6: Spend more time brushing up on your death metal while running rifts.
7-9: Very respectable, nephalem.
10: Damn, dude, can you powerlevel my baby Crusader while we head bang to Necrophagist?

Now post your score on the forums and let us know which ones you missed!

Wrong! You just confused a 7-year-old’s potty joke with the band that founded death metal, appropriately named Death.

4-6: Spend more time brushing up on your death metal while running rifts.
7-9: Very respectable, nephalem.
