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.

Rhapsody of Fire

You aren't serious, are you?


every band should have "of (insert element)" as part of their name. come on think sonata arctica of ice or skyfire of water.
then we could have Breaking of Wind.

Alestorm used to have an awesome name before they we're signed to Napalm Records, they we're named Battleheart. I loved that name.

For me the price goes to the Chilean Thrash Metal Band Anal Destructor. I've never heard their music but the name is awesome Image

Never really thinked about metal band names too much, but Sonata Arctica is an awesome name.
Here are some of the names that I can remember at the moment:

Ayreon (they are not metal, but nvm), HammerFall, Queen (yeah, I know they are not metal, but sorry, I must mention them), Nightwish, Rhapsody, Twilightning, Bloodbound is cool, Avantasia, The Poodles (cute :)), NightFall (there are more bands with this name, but I listen to only our, Serbian, band :D), Gamma Ray is so cool name, Wig Wam is awesome :D, Delain, Dream Asylum, Helloween, Silent Force, Royal Hunt, Freedom Call :D, Lunatica, Symphony X...

Some of them are cool when you translate them, and some are just cool, without translation. :D

*Stratovarius (Who else could think anything more original to combine an electric guitar brand with a violin one, resulting into a band that has the elemnts of heavy metal and classical music?)
* Iron Maiden (Sounds like a pussy name, but as soon you hear the band, you realize is the best thing they would have come up with)
* Dream Theater (The name itself makes you expect a very theatrical experience)
* Metallica ("With that name, this dudes are gonna blow my mind" was the first impression I had of them, and they never let me down)
* AC/DC (A name involving electricity and an alternating current or direct current power, what else can you expect?)

I must agree with Testament and Behemoth. How about Witchburner and Electric Wizard?
I kept hearing that metal is dead and Ozzy's dead and people that like Ozzy are dead. I have never had an empty seat. I've always sold out, so who's saying it's all over?

I have read that AC/DC actually stands for Anti-Christ/Devils Child.... that's pretty badass.

I don't think AC/DC have those ideas on mind while thinking the name, and I just don't see them talking about the anti christ on any of their songs. Take the example of "High Voltage" and then tell me :?

Honestly, every song title off Children of Bodom's "hate Crew Death Roll" should be a band name
