I'll include one that might be impossible despite a solid number of similar artists for each.

http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Arcana/1070
to
http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ars ... 3540294499

edit: Nope, it's possible, though I had to use a band with only one vote.

Arcana > Autumn Tears > Grey November > Decroyah > Anathema > Tiamat > Type O Negative > Carnivore > Superjoint Ritual > Arson Anthem.

As I've been playing this I try to only use bands with enough votes to be displayed on the main page, but oh well. I'll accept it. :P

Zodi, you definitely beat me. I had this massive goddamn chain:

Arcana -> Nachtreich -> Pensees Nocturnes -> Gris -> Austere -> Make a Change...Kill Yourself -> Krohm -> Leviathan -> Judas Iscariot -> Darkthrone -> Celtic Frost -> Winter -> Hooded Menace -> Dream Death -> Cirith Ungol -> The Gates of Slumber -> Orange Goblin -> Corrosion of Conformity -> Crowbar -> Arson Anthem.

I think the pattern I'm seeing is that the shortest path to anything goes through Anathema.

Most of these get done in about 4-5 shots :thumbsdown: gotta think of a really hard one.

Let's try Loudness to Whitechapel :evil:

Loudness → Judas Priest → Running Wild → Piledriver → Satan's Host → God Dethroned → Amon Amarth → At the Gates → The Black Dahlia Murder → All Shall Perish

Nine steps, not too shabby.

Doing it with Ildjarn:
Bone Awl> Ildjarn> Wulkanaz> Tomhet> Panphage> Lja> Darkthrone> Bathory> Venom> Possesssed> Death> Morbid Angel> Deicide> Cannibal Corpse> Aborted> Ingested> Annotations of an Autopsy> Waking the Cadaver

Dream Theater to Inquisition: (just on my own as a warm-up)

Dream Theater > James LaBrie > Soilwork > Dark Tranquillity > Hypocrisy > Depresy > Septic Flesh > Behemoth > Panzerchrist > Belphegor > Goatwhore > Inquisition

A whopping 12 degrees. Can probably be done more efficiently, any takers?

Six Feet Under > Obituary > Orange Shrimp > Soulfly > Machine Head > Trivium > All That Remains

Seven, but I have a feeling the right combination could get it down to 5.

Cannibal Corpse to Theocracy.

Seven:

Ulcerate -> Immolation -> Incantation -> Cianide -> Triptykon -> Neurosis -> Om

This game is at least giving me ideas about what to downvote for similar artists, heh.
