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.

Mr. Pig (such a funny name!), from Italy. One of Michele Luppi's metal bands. As far as I know, this band only makes covers of other metal/rock bands, like Metallica, Kiss, Whitesnake, and Europe.

Thanks... The only thing I can understand would be if people say it like "sunn" as in "Sudan" since that can be an honest mistake.

well most of the time the band is retarded as well, so it does work


Btw yes of course I know it is Sun but it is totally fucking logical anyone who doesn't know the amps think it should be pronounced Sunn Oh, so get off your high horse and try to think from the perspective of the unknowing... But then again most people into this sort of music (that is drone and other such stuff) seem to have a huge problem with that

Have no problems with the unknowing, but many into the genre do say Sun-oh.

As I was saying, anyone that pronounces the O))) as "oh" is indeed a moron as it's moronic to try and verbalise something that has no resemblance to a word. Doesn't matter if you've heard of the band or not.

And knowing Marcel's luck Steve of Gregg of Sunn O))) will show up and challenge him to give a reason why they're supposedly retarded, then we'll get to watch him grovel and squirm once again like he did with Seita

If a band mmber says they were sober I should take their word for it since I didn't smell them or have them undergo a breathalizer, nothing to do with groveling and squirming.

I don't grovel or squirm when it comes to bands, ask the guys in Grand Supreme Blood Court (a.k.a. Asphyx 3.0) or Flotsam & Jetsam or Isole or any other band for that matter.

And Sunn O))) especially not, only a couple of good things they released but that's it and they are tiny puny Americans.

Not sure how that translates to "retarded" however.

And it was still fun to watch you grovel, which you clearly did

So true... Shit, can you imagine if there's a rule that says that the greater the band/artist the shittier the tastes? Mories and Igorrr must be into stuff like korpiklaani then.

most of Sunn's music is a retarded attempt at it.

As for grovel... you got an immense lot to learn clearly. That was not grovelling, but then again you think it is cause you think you are always right. Goodnight... sorry excuse

There's many Sunn O))) shirts where they omit the "O)))" entirely (or at least put the symbol elsewhere). It's a picture, not a word.

Darkthrone's logo is a picture too, but the band still is known as Darkthrone rather than "mold."

I know it's just Sun, but the name doesn't imply that. It's a gimmick you need to find out from an external source. The only logical way to pronounce it would be "Sun-Oh Close Bracket Close Bracket Close Bracket." (Or Paranthesis, if you will.) Saying "Sun" is no more obvious than saying "Sun-Oh", both are clearly not what the written form says. I don't mind the name myself, but it does seem part of the whole crafted show that is Sunn O))). Their marketing prowess exceeds their musical merit.

There's a band called !!! too, but it's not obvious how to say it out loud. I guess you could just look really shocked and hope people realize you're communicating the band name rather than having a seizure.

I don't really regard Darkthrone as pertinent comparison, nor any other illegible band logos, as it's a stylising of a word, rather than a clear word followed by an obscure symbol. Sunn, from the logo, is fairly apparent that there is clear differentiation between the typefont of the name and what follows it. If we were to interpret and vocalise the entire logo they would probably be called "Sunn Sun." The actual logo doesn't really imply parentheses to my eyes.

!!! indeed requires further investigation, though calling them Exclamation Mark (repeateded thrice) is precisely what is written on the actual logo, not just the typed out version. (even if is it supposedly Click Click Click).

It's when you get to Witch House bands that things get difficult.

[EDIT]

"Chk Chk Chk" rather. Beg your pardon

I like Steven Wilson, but the image in my head of you punching him in the face for mispronouncing Sunn's name makes me laugh.
