How many 'different types' of metal are there and what's the difference?
Great question! As of right now, there are 86 known metals. Their properties vary widely, and there are multiple different groups: Alkali metals, Alkaline earth metals, Transition metals, Post-transition metals, Lanthanides, and Actinides; as well as a group of elements that are possibly metals, and some that are only sometimes considered metals.How many 'different types' of metal are there and what's the difference?
I like With-In Temptation and Sienia.Strangely enough, in this thread so far, there's no mention of symphonic metal, such as Nightwish, Within Temptations or Sirenia, just to name a few, but it's a very popular style of metal, generally with a female lead vocal.

I beat you to that jokeHere's a modest list:
Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic , Barium, Beryllium, Bismuth, Boron, bronze, Cadmium, Cesium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Gallium, Germanium, Gold ,Hafnium, Indium, Iridium, Iron, Lead, Lithium ,Magnesium ,Manganese ,Mercury ,Molybdenum ,Nickel, Platinum, Palladium, Rhodium, Osmium, Ruthenium, Rhenium, Rubidium, Scandium, Selenium, Silver, Strontium, Tantalum, Tellurium, Thallium Thorium, Tin, Titanium, Tungsten, Vanadium, Zinc, Zirconium
Base metals : a metal that oxidizes easily and reacts with HCL to form hydrogen. ex. iron, zinc, nickel
-Alloys : An alloy is a mixture of two or more elements in solid solution in which the major component is a metal. Ex. brass ( copper+zinc ), steel ( iron +carbon )
-Noble metals : metals that are resistant to corrosion. Ex. Rhodium, platinum
-Precious metals : rare metals of high economic value. Ex. Gold, silver, platinum
This is very general, but I hope it helps.
