The New Album Name

Post by browneyedgirl » Sat Jan 15, 2005 10:02 pm

If the new album cannot be Popkiller, what could it be?

I think the situation of the band arising out of their problems to begin anew is a good basis for album concept&name.


Well, what do you think? What could be an appropriate name?

I'll think about it&put my ideas down later! ;)

Depending on the content of the album....

They seem to like concise titles, so perhaps "Undead".

I also move for "Parting Words"

And in a cheesier light, "Feathers From Wax Wings Fall". Oh god, that was so uncreative. :twak:

Resuscitation or Revival. But first one is better.

Sallad Beef and Pudding -- why, you took the words right out of my... :P


I hope it isn't something unoriginal like "Resurrection." Maybe it could just be called "Stratovarius"? But then... that's not original either, I mean lots of bands have had self-titled albums signifying a rebirth (i.e. "Labyrinth")... I hope they choose a name that might mean a rebirth or whatever, but have a name that means something only to them, or with the fans, not something as blatant as the word "rebirth" itself for instance.

("Parting Words" is nice, and "ressusitation" is more clever than simply "rebirth' or something... but we also have to consider, are those Stratovarius-esque words? They have a certain vocabulary they stick to...)

please no more "strato" named things.

stratosphere
stratovarius
stratofortress

all as song names? seriously, an album name with "strato" in it would be the most laughable piece of crap ever.

that's all, i can't wait for the new album

Because people on this board are just apparently inable to think outside the known. ;)

I agree with Clare. However....i think that "Resuscitate" carries too much connotations with, say, hospital Emergency Rooms. They weren't DEAD, for chrissake. Just on hiatus.

Onwards. This thread has been here for nearly 24 hours and no one yet has pointed out that...oh my god....what if they want to name the album after a title track?? We are ill-prepared, then, to discuss album naming.

Second. I have no problem with Popkiller.

Third. Because TwilightSymphony hasn't shown face for a little while, i'm going to pretend i'm him and say something i feel he would probably contribute to this thread.

Which brings us to a question? Which usually comes first: the songs, or an albums name?
Some groups&singers do pick an album name first--like if they have a theme or concept in mind--and then, write the songs. And a title track could originate(from albums name) that way, too.
It does not matter, I guess.....whichever method the band prefers&works best for them they should follow.

Ashes to Ashes: hmm, not the right title, but sounds LOL
Phoenix: Well, there's already a song named so, but a remake could be possible... but this albumtitle would really rock

Phoenix is nice but there is already a song. Somebody mentioned it above...

Maybe...

Rebirth
Recurrence

or what about a 3 word title like Bathory's Blood Fire Death

here maybe:

Abyss Arise Awake or whatever ;)

Kabballah Blahblah pt. 1, anyone? On second thought, maybe not. How about Unchained? Or.. Reoccurrence? I dunno.. good titles are hard to come up with. :/

"Legions of the Phoenix" would be appropriate for a greatest hits album.

I still move for "Undead".

"Return From Madness" is just tasteless. ;)
