Cynic > Death > Sarcofago > Hellhammer > Darkthrone > Taake

(edited cause I saw Darkthrone was faster, was Mayhem > 1349 before)

This fact that I, almost every time, have no idea what at least one of the two bands sounds like really says it all about metal; there's so bloody much of it.

I just tried - took me a while but got there in 8 (or 9, depending on whether you count the first one):
Rhapsody → Blind Guardian → Running Wild → Saxon → Motörhead → Venom → Hellhammer → Darkthrone → Burzum

Hmm, you could have saved a step going from Venom > Mayhem > Burzum instead of going through Hellhammer. Still 8 total though.

8:
Cradle of Filth > Bal-Sagoth > Stormlord > Powerwolf > Iced Earth > Judas Priest > Deep Purple > Rush

Edit: 6 here:

Cradle of Filth > Sara Jezebel Deva > Therion > Celtic Frost > Voivod > Rush

(Incidentally, Voivod being linked with Rush is pretty stupid...)

Too late here, since several better routes were posted while I was doing this, but have it anyway for posterity's sake.

Cradle Of Filth > Dimmu Borgir > Emperor > Ihsahn > Leprous > Pain Of Salvation > Dream Theater > Rush

Anyone for Sabaton to Zarach 'Baal' Tharagh?

I got 14.

Sabaton > Jag Panzer > Satan's Host > God Dethroned > Behemoth> Morbid Angel > Zyklon > Anaal Nathrakh > The Axis of Perdition > Gnaw Their Tongues > Abruptum > Wold > Enbilulugugal > Zarach 'Baal' Tharagh

I'll try to consolidate ours :).

Edit: Looks, like you got your by working backwards. Remember, this doesn't necessarily give the same results. Axis of Perdition doesn't have Abruptum as a similar artists but Abruptum does have The Axis of Perdition as one.

I think the game at this point is equally "get from one band to the next in the shortest path" and "find two polar opposite bands and see how many bands are between them".

Probably not the most efficient, but:

Antaeus to DragonForce?

You can skip Cryptopsy.

Atheist > Gorguts > Suffocation > Putridity > Enmity

It's amazing how short this link is. They're nothing alike.

The link is only there because later Gorguts is proggy enough to be similar to Atheist, while early Gorguts is barreling and brutal enough to be comparable to Suffocation. It does make the process a lot shorter though, yeah. :scratch:

Not my best work:

Visceral Disgorge > Devourment > Wormed > Lykathea Aflame > Nile > Karl Sanders > Lord Wind > Wongraven > Storm > Heidevolk > Korpiklaani

I feel like there has to be a quicker way to get from Karl Sanders to Korpiklaani. Edit: got it a bit better.

Nile seems to be an effective backdoor from extreme metal to the more melodic side of things, given their links to Karl's solo stuff and Melechesh, who link into Orphaned Land. The problem is that whenever I try that specific route, that's three degrees right there. There's often a faster way.

There's probably something shorter.

Yup, I'd decided to try to go through Nile for that very reason and I'm not surprised there was a shorter route.
