Hi, I just recently formed a NWOTHM band with a few friends, but we haven't been able to come up with a good name, any suggestions?

I think people are confusing a handful of bands, sparsely populated across the globe, that have only come to our attention via the internet, which I think gives the illusion that there's more to it than there is.

Sure you have your Alpha Tiger, your Dark Forest, your Helvetets Port, but really, they're from different countries and there's no real scene as such. I think part of what made the NWOBH great was a lot of bands were making kind of new and exciting music, or at least improving on the formula. A lot of new bands as great as I think some are (Dark Forest in particular) they aren't really doing anything new, it's more a continuation, a new generation. The trad style of heavey metal never really went away. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but to suggest there's a new wave of traditional metal (which might be a bit of an oxymoron) I think is misguided.

If you can't think of a name for your band, the chances are your music isn't very creative either.
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.


Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

New Wave Of Tibetan Heavy Metal?

This would be the best thing ever. The Dalai Lama could be the lead singer of the 1st Tibetan Heavy Metal band, spawning 100's of bands fronted by Tibetan monks calling for Tibet's freedom!

Apparently there is.

According to what? You? There's no wave of Traditional Heavy Metal. There's a few select bands that still do it; that's all.

All the vocals would be throat singing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCkK1AqsIAI

Imagine that with a blast beat under it

Traditional heavy metal bands don't use blast beats. And there's already a metal band that has that with blast beats under it it's called Behemoth.

It was a joke. If semantics get your testicles up in a nut, replace the H with harmonica, and add some blues harp to the equation.

Wouldn't the right name for this be.

New Wave of New Wave of British Heavy Metal?

NWONWOBHM?

I was just joking around as well.


But back to this band name, guys, seriously. It's gotta be something sexually suggestive but not disgusting, just like any heavy metal band out there worth its salt.

Longsword
Hot Load
Tight Squeeze

Help me out here.

I love how this "movement," or "scene" has the modifier "new" in the name. What is new about a bunch of retro bands imitating their heroes from the eighties? Sure, some of them are good, but they're just treading over the same ground laid before them by the progenitors of the sound. This is silly.

How about Warrior Cock rings of Steel? The band can go onstage with raging metal boners, and they can have spiky gauntlets sheathing their manly javelins of death.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.
