Hi metalstormers,

The title is clear. Please remember and reply with the weirdest or funniest metal band names that you have come accross during your life in the scene.
It is in fact almost impossible to name a metal band nowadays that is not being used already, above all, if you want to give it a metalrelated name involving words like Hell, Warrior, Doom, Death, Thrash, Black, Red, Heavy, Pink...SORRY slip of the tongue, Steel, Fire and the like.
Last time I was in a band we were thinking in having the most strange name as possible so as to attract attention and, at the same time, not to be sued by another band with already that name. We thought about choosing: "Where is Bin Laden?" and translated from Spanish: 600 mb of Porno or Anita's great belches -Anita is a friend of mine with body of a model, face of an angel, not metalhead but a bit posh... and that belches like a drunk truckdriver-. Whenever she belches, everybody looks at me or another boy in the group.

The weirdest names I have heard from established bands are "Cadáveres de Tortugas" that means "Turtle corpses" that it is really twisted and weird and the best one: "Bodies in the gears of the apparatus" Fuck, that's a name. Complex and re-twisted.

I remember as well a discussion with a friend of mine that liked that musical genre that was called "Noise" 10 years ago. There were very strange band names in that label. Once he was naming some of them and we were laughing, then he said something that I did not understood. I said: what? Vaginal stone? -In Spanish: piedra vaginal.
He said: NO, weird, you are twisted. That name makes nonsense. PERA, Pera vaginal! -IN English: Vaginal pear. The real name was even more strange that the one I understood.

Well. Please tell me the weirdest names you have come accross during your life and we will laugh or even fear the twisted minds of their members.
S.O.D. Stormtroopers of Death is one to fear.

Bye.

I'm on the opposing end of that opinion - I think it's one of the best. Especially in their prime, being that it was far more appropriate.


I agree, it is a totally brilliant name.

No wonder Lars stole it from a guy who wnated to use it as a name for his magazine. Lars told I think it was Ron Quintana that Metallica would be a stupid name for a magazine and that he should call the mag Metal Mania (or something along those lines) Lars might be a dickhead but he was already a great businessman in his teens seeing the power behind the name Metallica. You got to give the douche credit for that.

It is very subtle band name I must say. Very related too metal, not much too deep of dependence on a meaning, simple, even somehow friendly.

Anal Cunt will always top the list for me. So outlandish and not-giving-a-shit.

As for weird names, my username, Vrawsche, is the name of a Black Metal band I'm currently writing lyrics for. The band members are very cool dudes, an eclectic mix of programmers, writers, accomplished musicians and freaks. We haven't named our album yet, but the lyrics are very intense and dark, as is the music.

Whoops. I just looked that up. As an aside, !T.O.O.H! composed "Kálí", my favorite song. I strongly believe that riff at the end is one of the best riffs in heavy metal.

If it means the same as the Dutch word verwoesting it isn't a weird name at all especially seeing that there is already a band around called Destruction

The last two minutes of Kali are some of the "bestest" music I've ever heard and will ever heard in my life. The riff, the drums, the guitar and bass solos. So much passion.

Bergraven. Because I just don't know what it means. As a swedish band I first thought the name was "Begraven", which means "buried". That would make sense, bad ass name for a black metal band. But then I noticed the R. What the hell is "BeRgraven"? "Berg" means "mountain" in swedish, but what the hell would "raven" be then? Or is that part of the name meant to be in english? So it's "Berg/Mountain Raven"? Well that's just ridiculous. After some investigation I found out that "rav" is an old norse word for amber. The nowadays swedish word for it, "bärnsten", maybe just didn't make the cut then.
So I guess the name then is "The Mountain Amber". Shitty name, they should have just went for Begraven (Buried).

I still think it's a shitty band name though.

The name of an amplifier brand


I knew that much. That's what makes it even weirder. Not only is it a weird name for an amp brand, but it's weird that the band weirdly took the name from a weirdly named amp brand.

You know, the more times you type "weird" the weirder the word looks.

I think the name is perfect. They do use those amps exclusively so no wonder they like them so much. But there's more: Sunn O))) from the beginning where highly influenced by Earth. So it felt cool to them to make an idea of "Sun passing around earth". Before that they used to have the name Mars though... But thankfully they went for the sun instead.

It's a cool name, it's just weird. Every time I try to say it out loud to tell someone about them, I don't know what to say. Sun Oh? Sun Oh...radiation? Sun Oh Triple Ending-Parentheses?

If wikipedia is correct (plus I've heard most people say it this way), you just say "Sun". Anything else is just to look like the brand's logo.

I personally feel that anyone who says "Sun Oh" should get punched in the throat.

Makes sense. Usually when I refer to the band, I am telling someone about them so they can look them up. "Sun" won't cut it for that, but I guess I'll just write it down.

But yeah, I'll stick with saying "Sun" in all other cases. Especially because I don't think I'd enjoy getting punched in the throat.

Somebody sent me a link to a band from Dubai called "Billy Bob's Blood Drenched Brew" that's pretty fucking strange. Their song names are also odd.


Ha! that's my band. Yeah we get that a lot. Sometimes promoters even shorten the name down to "blood drenched" or something in that vein. It's rather irritating for we really like the name as is.
