The Merry Monolithic Metal Cryptic Quiz

On Christmas Day, we got a bit whimsical and decided to create a cryptic metal band name quiz and give away a signed copy of SylosisMonolith.. Just over a month later, we figure it’s about time to wrap things up and share the answers. Got a fair few entries, but before we get to the winner, here are the all important solutions to the cryptic quiz!

If any of those don’t make sense to you, just sound off in the comments and we’ll be happy to explain.

This is the first time we’ve done anything like this, and so it’s still a learning process, but it was a lot of fun to do, so we’ll probably do it again. Bit more interesting than a boring old question and answer, right?

So, without any further ado, on to the winner! Take a bow Alex Green, whose final-hour entry takes home the prize.

Let us know what you thought, and see you next time!
