Don't forget about Osbourne Black at the same place.https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/196985252428644352/785471094433120266/unknown.png
FittingWhenever you enter Maldraxus from the flight path, the guitar rift always make me do the air guitar thing.Ofcourse it'll have a lot of metal/rock reference in it :D
There is also "Judas Sneap" at Plague Watch who I'm guessing is a reference to Judas Priest and their producer/stand in guitarist Andy Sneap.
Cool. Simmons should periodically yell out, "Keep it simple, stupid!", the other meaning of KISS in my head.
Can't wait for Gene Simmons to sue Blizzard since he didn't get paid for this.
There is also Arkadia Moa and Su Zettai (NPC that you give anima to, and renown quartermaster), they are references to the BabyMetal girls: Kikuchi Moa and Nakamoto Suzuka. :D
You also have:Odious Gwor, who's a reference to Oderus Urungus of GWAR. Occasionally Zipper Pig from X-Cops, and Dave Brockie of RAWGSlayer Araya reference to Tom Araya of SlayerFelicia Night is also wandering about and a reference to Felicia Day
I made some time ago a list of all these references in Seat of the Primus and Maldraxxus in general, can't post a Reddit link so I'll copy my list here, comment if you find any missing ones (I haven't included quest names and achievements because there are dozens and dozens of them all over the world from older expansions as well)List of reference NPC's in Seat of The Primus:Tapani Nightwish - Marco Tapani Hietala from NightwishOsbourne Black - Ozzy Osbourne from Black SabbathOdious Gwor- Oderus Urungus from GWARSlayer Araya - Tom Araya from SlayerTaiya Tacere - Taija Riihimäki from TacereMortis Elfsen - Håvard Ellefsen from Mortiis (Tbh I overthinked this one big time: I was first thinking David Ellefson from Megadeth)Valuator Simmons, Sharpeye Stanley, Erak Steelsinger and Trainee Thayer - Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer from KISS (these guys are standing together near training dummies) Check the WoWhead news item aboveMellisa Fate - Melissa, an album by Mercyful FateArkadia Moa& Su Zettai - Moametal & Sumetal from Babymetal, credits to redditor Dropolis for this one!These were pretty obvious, here's a few more speculative/controversial ones:Lyra Hailstorm - A bit so so, but Lzzy Hale from HalestormEdrich Adebo - Eric Adams from Manowar, maybe?Chiara Coil- Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil (Bear in mind Chiara is a real-life italian name, and Lacuna Coil was an italian band)Bonus: Madeleine Roux... well, Madeleine Roux?

You should probably add The Primus, which is obvs a reference to Primus :DI wonder if anyone states that 'The Primus sucks' in the game...

Needs Peter and Ace...OG lineup.
Theatre of pain is a record from Mötley Crue :)
