Yeah, so basically what band names make the said band sound heavier than they are?
Eagles of Death Metal and Megadeth spring to mind imo.

And conversely what band names make a particular band sound less heavy than they are?

I've searchbarred and found nothing. And well it's xmas

Led Zeppelin sounds like it would be pretty heavy. BUT alas...

If Beiber is our generation's Cobain I can't see how that is a bad thing.
Just make sure the shotgun is loaded.

I've always thought that mayhem was a real tame name when you consider what the band sounds like, and their back story.

Bands that sound harder than they are. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club wasn't quite what I expected of the name.

Agreed with Megadeth.
When i was younger, i didn't want to listen to them because i thought they were some really heavy death metal band

Same here; then, when I first started bass, my brother told me I should learn the bassline to Countdown To Extinction, and then I realized that:

a) They weren't overly-heavy (what "overly-heavy" means is obviously a matter of opinion)

and

b) They kick ass!

Yeah same lol Also if someone asks you what you're listening to and as soon as you say "deth" they give you an unecessary weird look

Glad I did eventually listen to them though

Well, my band is called the Ravager, and we're really...Not that heavy. Yet.

Also, Death Cab for Cutie.

Gaelic Storm. Sounds like a Folk metal Band, is in fact a very, very irritating folk pop band.
#31
slipknot olololol


*disclaimer: i actually enjoy their music*

but really i'm gonna have to say the killers

Drowning Pool. Their new album isn't even metal. It's good, but it's just a modern rock album of sorts, to me.

I love Megadeth to death, and yes, a lot of their material isn't that heavy, but the first four records are heavy as hell, and their newest one, Endgame, is quite heavy.

Though I guess I seem to remember long ago thinking they were a super-heavy death metal growler band.
#35
names that sound heavier than the band actually is?
pussy cat dolls would be my bet.

I thought they were some sort of metal band when I first heard their name.

To be fair, their old stuff was pretty heavy.
