New name

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by k-dawg, Jun 6, 2001.


  1. My band (Demonic evolution, a speed metal band) is in the process of changing its name. The guitarist doesn't like the death metal association. What do you think of these alternatives

    -Digital Sledgehammer
    -Phist
    -White Noise
    -Hate Candy
    -Unhinged

    Your feedback and suggestions would be appreciated
     
  2. Digital Sledgehammer sounds pretty cool.

    I think that unhinged is the best name.

  9. Forget white noise, go with pink noise... it is a more fun version of noise... and like white noise it has an actual meaning too...
     
  10. Two choices my guitarist came up with are

    Psychopathica and hatemail.

    what do you think of these?
     
  11. Psychopathica , ok, it may take a few people a while to pronounce it, and even then it'll mean nothing to them

    also, hatemail,, yeah,, but what happens when the guy ask's you "what the hell is HAT MAIL"??

    sorry just joking,

    my bands called Closer, but we have a female vocalist
     
  12. I still think Unhinged rules. Perhaps The Unhinged, ala The Haunted?

    Personally, I would stay away from any name with the word "hate" in it. People hate the word "hate," as I have learned from the many, many, many comments I have received about my screen names and my company's name. People wouldn't take the time to have you explain the name to them, they would just assume you were racist or prejudice.
     
  16. just a suggestion but our singer wanted to be called "radioactive goat semen". we threw out the name so anyone is welcome to it. (we have since got a new singer, that guy had issues)
