    well, actually that chinese website was a hell of a job... but somehow I managed in the end.
    Explorer, yes, but I do have a lot of other browsers too. But don´t worry, I´ll find it out. Just no time at the moment because I gotta go to festival in 1 hour ;)

    and yes, Japanese and Korean would be great, thanks in advance! :)

    actually, it sounds like something to eat (at least to me) :D
    Probably its some Metal kind of Pasta? Like Cannelloni, Tortelloni and so on? :D

    I removed it from the updated list already anyway, because people said they´ve never heard that...

    Rather few uses the word Metallisti, even though it's correct. Hevari is a bit stereotypical and it's usually used by non-metalheads. I personally use the term Hevimies = Heavy/metalman.
