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'd say the coolest most masculine band names have to be either Fairyland or The Flower Kings.









Both awesome bands BTW.

Cradle of Filth
Children of Bodom (because there is a story behind it)
Iron Maiden (because of history...the idea is interesting)
Blind Guardian (always liked it, don't know why)
Nevermore...simply beautiful
Teräsbetoni (only because of the hard sound, not because of the meaning)
Candlemass

and one which is not metal, but too funny, really (but it's german, so I don't know if it's funny when translated)

Trotzdem Danke
Lol
it's something like: Thanks, though
