# I'm a big fan of this riddle

Next phrases all have an answer to them and all answers are related to each other, good luck!

1. they sail they drink and treasure is what they hanker,

But don't annoy them or they will f*** you with an anchor.

2. For history don't look far

as it is everything you want to learn about war.

3. known by a lot not to be seen

As batman would not be so keen.

4. I do not wish for something during the day

As hope is all that I will pay.

5. When everybody dies

The apocalypse will rise.

HINT:

3.

The biggest hint actually comes from @Jannis being batmetal

1. (format is a bit odd, couldn't let the lines start on a new line in invisible block quotes... maybe someone can fix this :) ?)

Adventures of different dimension
Come together in a place where time is of no mention.

One who cannot feel
Put them through tests unreal.

While this is all a hassle
One thing lies ahead, the electric castle

Final hint to find number 3:

As time ticks at the klok to awaken
The metal apocalypse is forsaken

1. They sail they drink and treasure is what they hanker, But don't annoy them or they will f*** you with an anchor.

This refers to Alestorm, a scottish pirate-themed heavy metal band. One of their last album song refers to anchors and where you can put them.

2. For history don't look far as it is everything you want to learn about war.

This could be Sabaton, another metal band with a high interest in war history.

3. Known by a lot not to be seen As batman would not be so keen.

4. I do not wish for something during the day As hope is all that I will pay.

Probably Nightwish, the name itself is quite explanatory. I recall one of their song has something to do with hope, but I didn't listen to them for a decade so my memories are a bit outdated.

5. When everybody dies The apocalypse will rise.

So my guess is

That you are a big metal fan indeed ;)

• Both would indeed be correct, don't think that 1 was very hard to find with your name :p. Oct 29, 2018 at 13:08
• Yes 4 is also correct as well as the link between each answer, and your memory is not failing you they have a song about hope. Though 3 and 5 are still to be found, they are my most favorites but also less known than the others Oct 29, 2018 at 13:18
• Is no.3 this ?

• @mrdeadsven dunno whats the original, because someone just showed me like half a year ago this video. as I read the answer and batman I drew the connection. I am no real lover of metal. cool question though

• Edguy's album Age of the Joker comes to mind for #3, but looks like that's not correct? A couple songs there seem almost appropriate. Love running into (power) metal fans! Oct 31, 2018 at 21:51

Ok, n°5 should definitely be...

Ayreon ... But I do not understand how it matches with the firth hint.... Is it a reference to 'Y' (or '01011001') where human kind is the object of the "sixth extinction", which is also the final song of the album?

• Yes you are correct it is ayreon. but I don't get what you are asking could you copy the sentence of my riddle that you don't understand so I can explain it? Oct 31, 2018 at 14:06
• @mrdeadsven it is about "When everybody dies The apocalypse will rise." Oct 31, 2018 at 14:12
• Ohh it was actually very simple. Everybody dies and Run apocalypse Run are my favorite songs of the band (and also 2 of the more known songs) And I choose these instead of into the electric castle to start with, because the electric castle is much older and I think lesser known at the moment. Also because what they are most known for is songs of the end of the world etc. so I thought a rising apocalypse was a good reference towards them. Oct 31, 2018 at 14:30
• Indeed! that was too obvious and I missed it! Fool of me :) Oct 31, 2018 at 14:31
• Yea I was like ohh they are far less known then all the rest let me just put in 2 known song titles so it's a bit fair, but seems putting things plain in the open in a puzzle site is the best way to hide things :p. Oct 31, 2018 at 14:35

Going with Keelhaul's theme of

Metal bands

When everybody dies
The apocalypse will rise.

This could be Metallica. The first line hints at Kill 'Em All, and the second line could refer to "My Apocalypse" or maybe "The Four Horsemen". Then again, both themes are staples of the genre so I wouldn't be surprised if there are multiple possible answers here.

• I'm afraid a band like Metallica is a tiny bit too famous considering : "Though 3 and 5 are still to be found, they are my most favorites but also less known than the others" :p Oct 30, 2018 at 15:49
• Nice reasoning (and I do like me some Metallica :p ) but unfortunate not the correct answer here. As I said in the comment before the last 2 that you are looking for are less known and I think Metallica is pretty much one the most famous ones out there. I'll probably add a hint tomorrow, though I think that the comment of jannis was the biggest hint there is for 3. Oct 30, 2018 at 15:51
• Oh I see, hadn't noticed that comment :)
