It's a bit strange seeing Metal and Earth being separated out considering their overall thematic similarities. I'm curious as to what that's all about.
In Wuxing (Chinese Five Elements) where they probably took from, Metal and Earth are distinct elements.
Metal represents firmness, rigidity, persistence, strength, and determination. It can also relate to having strong impulses, being forceful, ambitious, and stubbornness.
Earth represents patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, hard work, and stability, as well as seeking to bring the other elements together to create harmony.
Thematically, anyway, they are very different - I'm curious to see how it reflects in the mechanics.
