Our Heavy Metal Horror Quiz Will Have You Screaming for Mercy!

The link between heavy metal and horror has been ironclad ever since four dudes from Birmingham single-handedly created an entire genre of music — taking their name from a Boris Karloff-starring, Mario Bava-directed terror anthology.

Now, the two mediums are not mutually exclusive; horror geeks are just as likely to listen to Simon & Garfunkel as a headbanger is to catch the occasional Wes Anderson flick. But, simpatico subject matter and obviously ominous tones tend to make for lifelong bedfellows between the cinematic and musical forms; they can’t help but inform one another. So, we’ve got a game for all of you horror-fied heshers out there.
