    Alright, so just joined a band we don't have a name but gonna suggest people throw any ideas (serious or silly) out there. partially for ideas and partially for fun.

    A little about us

    We're a metal band (Whats the best band name for Metal?)
    We play alot of Thrash/NWOBHM/Power metal/video game metal
    Covers include: Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Megadeth, Helloween, Testament, Pretty Maids, Warlord, Dragonforce, Minibosses, White Wizzard, Metallica, etc.

    We're doing this for fun (not to be taken too seriously, but out to have a good time)

    So come at me bro...your best and worst names for a metal band of this type. If we end up picking one of these names I'll let you guys know.

    EASY! Just pick the colour of your pants & the last thing you ate = band name (right now for me that would be Black Orange)

    Sort of a takeoff on iconoclast, but breaking balls instead of icons

    Gothika is a movie title from 2003.
    Xiatica is a take-off of sciatica, which is a nerve issue in a person's hip.
    Zichlanic and Syntenic Fire are not really anything as revealed by a google search. Not really find any references to Trojan, Ramses, Durex, or Sheik. ;)

    It continues to amaze me how many so-called "musicians" (i.e. people who could allegedly be defined as "creative") can be so utterly lacking in imagination as to be unable to even give themselves a name. :rolleyes:

    I can't help thinking that this same lack of imagination is likely to manifest itself in their music. I reckon that if you can't even do that much, you probably don't have much to say anyway... :eyebrow:
