NuMetalManiak
Time for another list analysis, but I've decided to do things a bit differently because of there being 709 items this time around. You see, a lot of these I can tell are duplicates, so instead of talking about every single item at once, I'll group them all into similar categories and go from there. This was inspired by my own personal life right now. Also this will be part 1, as I do the first 360 items and will comment on the categories in a comment below.
