This will be a page of random metal-related trivia for your enjoyment. Of course, some of this information may be wrong, and a lot of it might be missing, if you know of more correct information, let me know so I can update this.
I also want to take this second right now to give a special mention/thanks to Encyclopaedia Metallum – The Discordance, and many of the users at the Metal Archives Forums. Without the existence of this Needlebase database and those forums, finding some of this stuff could have been REALLY fucking hard.
