    In keeping with the spirit of Open Source software, but with a heavy metal twist, how about...

    Re: Anybody want to help me with a new name for my band?

    Latin-based names are popular - eg. Krypteria, Apocalyptica, Epica, Xandria, Tristania
    Some bands use the name of a (their) city, or a nearby feature - Boston, Gotthard, Black Oak Arkansas, Stonehenge

    Re: Anybody want to help me with a new name for my band?

    Some years ago (let's not go into detail ) I wanted to form a heavy metal band. The name I intended to use was "Spucatum Tauri" (look it up on the 'net). Other name that could work (being that you are a linux user) would be #! (CrunchBang). Just my 2 cents.

    how about an acronym? such as MMA. i.e. Masters of the Metal Arts, (a little pretentious) or Mixed Metal Arts etc? feel free to use a different acronym.

    At least one band has used the band members' initials to form an acronym/name. (OK, so you're no ABBA)
    Contradictions - like Rusted Gold, or Rough Silk (Velvet Revolver)

    considering the zillions of bands there have been over the years it would be hard not to do something so new no one has thought of something similar.

    how about Grind, Grimace, Glare...

    Yes, bands names are like horses and dogs at the racetrack, it's very hard to find something that hasn't been used.

    or a number 424, or a mix M27, or something with a silent letter, such as Gnerve (or Gnurve). Okay I'm done

    This made me think, why not something like the Prince symbol thingy.

    Have some graphics artist make a symbol without a name.
    Then let the fans decide what they'll call it.
