Perhaps this should be posted in the promote your band section but lets face it, no one is ever in there. My band Upon Wreckoning is going to have a chance to play the Everything is Bigger in Texas Fest II and needs votes to help make it happen. I'll return the favor if you need a crit or something like that.

Here's the poll...

And here's my bandage in case you want to hear what you're voting for...

Upon Wreckoning? Generic metalcore/post-hardcore name if I've ever heard one.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

You know that it's spelt 'reckoning', right?
...Stapling helium to penguins since 1949.

Todd, you obviously don't understand. I'll try and explain it to you, though. 'Wreckoning' is a portmanteu (which doesn't mean a pair of sailors, chortle) of 'wreck' and 'recko...

Nah, I can't keep this up, it's a pretty feckin' awful name.

It's upsetting when to give the benefit of the doubt you have to assume someone can't spell.

Listened to some of your stuff. Not too familiar with the genre, but it sounded like what I expected. Take that as you will.

Almost as upsetting as when you find Milky Bar dessert pots in the fridge rather than Rolo ones.


Or discover that what you thought was chocolate chip it actually blueberry.

Normally I would remedy that but i've just been unbanned and don't want any unsavoury quotes in my name.
#21
Thanks for that person who voted haha. Yeah I agree the name could be better, i think its the word "Upon" that makes it kinda generic. Maybe we should just change it to just "Wreckoning"? My band mate recommended "Lunar Wilderness" idk how I feel about that though.
#22
Fact is there is quite the opposite of any wilderness on the moon

edit: just plain The Wreckoning is a bit of an improvement tho

My mom tries to get me to eat my vegetables, but it's so goddamn hard to digest a wheelchair.

Satisified?

The name Upon Wreckoning is pretty metalcore. I checked the music out. Intro was all like, "never heard a heavy band do this before." Drums were like, bass pedals. Guitar 1 was like, chug chug in that cheesy metalcore guitar tone. Guitar 2 was like, twidly twidly twidly. So, I dunno, maaaaaaaaaaan.

Any thing with "Wreckoning" in it is bad.

Well since you guys are all-knowing and write such great music, what name do you suggest we change it to? And what could we do to not sound like "metalcore"?
#33
I don't know anything about music, but I think you'd be better off if you removed the W.

1) Most of these idiots have no idea what "Metalcore" actually is. They think bands like The Black Dahlia Murder and such are Metalcore. Well, when one of them can explain to us all what Hardcore influence that crop of bands have, then maybe I'll start taking their idea on "Metalcore" seriously. Actual Metalcore bands have hardcore influence through and through. End of story.
2) Your band sounds just fine. It's just modern metal.
