Best metal band names ever!!

Here musicians can talk to each other about making music etc. Of course if you are not a musician you are still welcomed to this board, but the topics should somehow be about making music.

I think Sonata Arctica is a great name, although in this case the name doesn't fit too well with the music, too much doublebass drumming and noise to be very "sonata". But anyway. Yeah. But somehow you can feel the arcticness in their music, fuck it's cold up here.

I always thought the name "Abstrakt Algebra" defined the music pretty well.....

Also, DragonForce, DragonHammer, DragonLand....any name that starts with Dragon always amused the hell out of me. :lol:

I'd love to know the origin of the name "Royal Hunt".

Led Zeppelin is a cool name.

But when I do, I shall have the stomach and the liver too,

I think Metallica is a great name too.

Nightwish is a good band, but the name is quite ordinary.

Actually... I get the exactly opposite feeling. :D I really think Sonata Arctica fits well into their music, it has an.. icy, glaciar feel to it, it's rather hard to explain.. but that's the originality in Sonata Arctica's music that I like, and it's why I really think the name is appropriate.

A few other metal band names I really like are Blind Guardian and Dream Theater :headbang:

Megadeth

This band got its name from a political flyer discussing dangers of Nuclear weapons.
The band uses lots of nuclear symbols such as biohazard&radioactive symbol in their stuff!

It's no metal but I think Pink Floyd is a very good one. There is Pennywise that's great too.
