Answers To Our "Metal Or Hymn?" Quiz
A little harder than you thought, wasn't it? If Sunday-morning hymns belong to the King of Kings, and heavy metal is the Prince of Darkness' domain, they sure seem to copy each other's notes a lot. If you haven't seen our little sacred-vs.-profane brain-teaser yet, go ahead and take a whack at it before we reveal the answers. Ready? Click away - and prepare to be surprised.
A. "Now let my people go, land of Chosen/ Go, I will be with thee, bush of fire" METAL (Metallica, "Creeping Death") B.

"O sacred head, sore wounded/ Defiled and put to scorn/ O kingly head surrounded/ With mocking crown of thorn" HYMN (Paulus Gerhard, "O Sacred Head, Sore Wounded") D.
