Lol it's not, those rules are confusing and I'll update them.

Simple Death Metal is reading all prompts more than once (at least 40 books depending on how many times you complete it).

If you want to challenge yourself, you can read Track 2 Adult and Track 2 Young Adult and that is the Super Death Metal Challenge (completing Track 2 twice).

Death Metal is at least 40 books.
