So this is my 666th post. I know that pales in comparison with some of the post counts around here numbering in multiple tens of thousands, but that's not the point. I've been counting down to it for about the past year or so, trying to think of something appropriately themed to use it for, and what could be more 666 related than heavy metal?
So here's my thought. During discussions with coworkers, family, and my wife about both music and Diablo (who with very few exceptions understand little and care even less) I end up talking about things that sounds straight out of a fantasy role-playing game. Weird, I know but quite often the names of things sound freaking awesome even out of context.
Now I know I'm not the only knuckle-dragging headbanger around here, so what's the most "metal" sounding part of diablo? Could be a place, character, affixed item, rare title, monster title (i'm thinking some of the boss pack names could be a safe bet), quest detail, literally anything is fair game so long as it's a legitimate spawn (so no Smoldering Demon Heart of Anthrax since those affixes don't work on that item regardless of how awesome it sounds)
I'll get us rolling here, with the obvious choice to me anyway (my thread, I'm calling dibs!)

Now I'm off to listen to Rose Funeral and watch the pub game trades scroll past like a productive member of society.
