Here's another "ChupaCabra" loosely translated "Goat Sucker"

Check this out, heres how you make an origional name. COme up with about 20 or 30 names. Good. Those are the ones that everyone else came up with too. Throw them away. then start again.

That sounds familiar, did Chuck Palanuik write that?

Since it's a Metal band how about Scrap Iron?

or "Pig Iron"?

better yet: "Smelter"

On a lighter note I always thought it would be a good idea to name a covers band “Free Beer” at least then people would show up to the gigs.

TONIGHT – FREE BEER!

I mixed for a band called "Free Drinks" for a couple of months.
They played mainly D-list bars, and picked the name to "dare" bars to put the name on their sign.

That was over 10 years ago, and I think they broke up/drifted apart/reformed-with-new-people-and-a-new-name several times since then, so I'd guess the name is up for grabs. At least outside of Brandon, Manitoba

Great band names are outside the box.

One of the best local band names I've ever seen comes from NE Ohio. Just about any weekend you can drive by some club and see on the sign:

15 60 75

And everyone in the area knows that "The Numbers Band" is playing there tonight.

I dont know who wrote it, but its an adaptation of a graphic design mantra we used in school, "Make a bunch of drawings, throw them away and start over"

I like Hillbilly Blitzkrieg actually.

my friend's bands are called stone martyr and the horror 57s. for an original name try taking your typical Death, doom, dying, dead, sick, morbid and then translate it to russian, or german, or some differnt language. acryonyms work good to.... HIM (his infernal majesty), AFI (a fire inside), POD and so on and so on

My advice: Just pick something, anything. Heck, throw a dart at a newspaper. Any attempts to be unique, refreshing and 'different' might be better aimed towards actually writing unique, refreshing and different music. But that's just my take.
