PostSubject: Band Names?   Fri Sep 04, 2009 9:47 pm

I was wondering what your guys' thoughts were on this. I've noticed lately that there are bands that I won't listen to simply because I don't like the name. One example is Manilla Road, I think they have a good sound but their name is just god awful imo. It's like that with other bands too, like VR posted a link to a band called Anorexia Nervosa, and I just don't want to listen to them (although I will). Is it sorta like that for you guys too, where a band name makes you like a band less?

If the band name is something amount the lines of corpse or fetus, I don't want to hear it

And I kinda over-exaggerated. I will always listen to a band if their music is appealing to me, but I mean there are bands that I am skeptical about as soon as I hear their name

I laughed at Manilla Road, sounds like a movie where the main character dies

It sounds like the name of a chick flick lol.

But I like their sound, although their singer wasn't exactly my favorite.

I'm like that only with lyrical subject manners. I just can't get into like NSBM and things like that very much. Arghoslent Onslaught or whatever I don't care to look up is like a really good melodic death metal band but I don't listen to them because the lyrics kind of ruin it for me.

For band names I actually like unusual names. Manilla Road is pretty cool. To be 100% honest it constantly reminds me of Mario. That's what the band reminds me of. Mario. Mario. Mario. Mario. 100% Mario.

Dammit now it reminds me of Mario too. There was something about Manila in that game.

I too am like that about lyrical content. If it's disgustingly obscene or satanic I don't like it. I usually don't like any religious themed music

For me it's more about the message than the lyrics I suppose. A lot of bands just use stereotypical lyrics to go with the flow and in that case it's rather irrelevant to me.

I like some evil lyrics as long as they aren't like

"F GOD, I LOVE SATAN, I'M A BADASS BECAUSE I HATE GOD". That pisses me off

I usually don't care too much because they are just putting on a show when they say those things.

I know this is really random but...
The Heaviest Break Down
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePR1Q3jhao0

And then continue on about band names / lyrics. I think Gorgoroth is an excellent band name, as well as Shining and Ulver. Suffocation is a rather generic name for a band but damn the music is good.

Still the best band name has to be...
DEATH.

And one of the worst...
CANNIBAL CORPSE. What does that even mean?! All right it isn't that bad it might even be pretty decent but still...

i am seriously a huge fan of cannibalism so i've always enjoyed the name and cannibal corpses lyrics are completely awesome because they are narrated by the cannibal himself.

Walking down the street, the smell of death in the air
What a rotting stench
My imagination runs wild at what this could be
Open up the can to discover a dead body

Or what was left of one, pieces in a bag
Blood is everywhere what a retched sight
Cut up really small by a razor sharp knife
Lying in the garbage no one else knows
What I have found, what should I do
Take it to the police or make it into stew
This was an evil commited by the insane
Looking down laughing, I am the same

The sight of death drives me nuts, I must kill, to control my brain
Swept away by my lust to cause pain, mutilation is my only want
The evil inside me gives me the strength to kill at will
My life is the means to cause death in the most sinister ways

I see it in your eyes the fear that keeps me alive
I'll take it away, your life will end today
I'll leave you to rot, what a sick odor
Scream all you want, but you can't stop this horror

Tasting your life as I drink your blood
Ripping out your insides, chewing on your spleen
Dead or living flesh is what I crave
I'll kill someone or eat from a grave

Hacksaw Decapitation

Memory of the insane
Of killing in so many ways, homicidal
Seeking redemption through rage
With hacksaws I decapitated them all
Blood covers the ground, my feet are saturated
Rotting flesh scattered around, I feel no remorse
I don't remember my name
Or when blood of the dead flowed so relentlessly
Extracting the brains from the skulls
My anger evolves with the more heads I deform
Sawing the neck I am engulfed in fantasy
Chew the esophagus, cannibal delicacy
Utterly exacerbated, forever deleterious
Slicing through skin, sundered larynx, veins spraying blood
Tattered windpipe, facial carvings, another head to abhor
Beheading sustains my desire
Enhancing my primitive mind
Annihilation without reprieving
Memory of the insane
Of killing in so many ways, homicidal
Seeking redemption through rage
With hacksaws I decapitated them at will
Predacious, violent killing spree
Abolished, putrescent cadavers
Butchered in excrement, sordid obscurity
Feverish hunger to inhale the stench of their death

If people wrote like this in poetry units of english class, they would probably be sent to the principal

i just don't understand how someone wouldn't like them. just so intense with great clear vocals and disturbing solos and just such a dark creepy atmosphere.
