Band name ideas?


Off-Topic Discussions


Hey everyone,

I play pathfinder weekly and have also played in several touring bands, currently I am starting a metal band in the pacific northwest and we are discussing band name ideas, I was wondering if anyone could help out with some band name ideas. We're looking for a name that sounds evil/heavy/like a metal band and I was like "pathfinder has some awesome monster names, maybe I'll see if anyone has any ideas on the messageboards." All input is greatly welcomed and appreciated. I will also post links to free downloads of our songs in here to share with the pathfinder community once we have some recordings.

Cheers,
Juuso

Taking a little inspiration from Madclaw:

The Mithral Manticores (but mithral doesn't sound too evil/heavy)
The Adamantine Manticores (a little tongue twisty)

Something with the Vrock demon could work for a logo but might sound a little corny:
Vrock and Roll
Ready to Vrock

The Marilith demon looks cool and scary for a logo and could probably could work as a name base:

Marilith Misfits
Marilith Malcontents
Marilith Manson :P

The Wight undead creature could be cool as a logo/name base:

Wight Winter
Wight Darkness (I kinda like this one the best)

Just some quick ideas. Sorry if these are all too lame; I came up with them super quick. Hope this at least helps you think of some stuff!

Not Pathfinder-related at all, really, but my teenage heavy metal garage band was called The Diabolic Apostles.

You can have it for $25.


Some of the Hellknight orders might be neat - 'Order of the Rack', for example, although people might think you're referring to ribs, or... something else.

The Elder Eye?

Bodak?

Spiders of Leng?

Von Strahd?

Silver Crusade

Basilisk.

Chimera.

Balrog. (Tolkein, not Pathfinder)

Elemental.

Elements of Chaos.

Wyvern.

So were Tarrasque and Wyvern. My three favorite suggestions. All were used by metal bands, though. :)

Considering that's what the OP wants the name for...

Drider. With an evil-looking spider-dude (or chick, the chick would look hot!) holding a barbed flying V and a wickedly spiked whip for a logo.

Gibbering Mothers

Hypnoster (hipster ironically casting hypnotize)

I remember there was a band called the Uncanny X-Men when I was a Kid. If you are a metal bad, you might try: The Starks.

They were very good live.


Ok, I like Skitterdark or Stirge. For a slightly more irreverent reference, how about Hypnotoad?

Actually, "Madclaw" itself is a pretty good metal name. Not that I'm advocating its theft or anything.

Bestiary wouldn't be a bad name just on its own
