I was thinking of calling my band rapture

rapture is a state of being carried away by overwhelming emotion.

which is pretty cool

except these other fags took the name (I googled it) and they're pretty big in some places

so I went on a online thesauras thing and put in rapture

One of the words that came up is ecstasy

ecstasy is an overpowering emotion or exaltation; a state of sudden, intense feeling.

I also thought that was pretty cool. (I'm aware its also a drug)

Our band is sort of light metal band (no screaming but heavy guitar).

Give me your thoughts on ecstasy as a band name (unless your one to think a band name like Cannibal Corpse is cool).

i've never heard light metal.

that must be a play on hard rock.

You'll get confused with XTC. Call your band Lüd Konduc'd.

I don't think the name of a drug is a good band name. If their weren't a drug called ecstasy it would be fine.

Ecstasy could be a bit powerful.. and drug related .. and I actually am familiar with rapture they're not so bad.. light metal band hmm names like Break or The Fall or The Long Way could be neat.. but if you want to go with feelings or intense emotion try Euphoria or Elation or something like that
So what if the early bird gets the worm.. the second mouse gets the cheese!!
And yes I am awesome

Apart from the drug thing, to me at least, "ecstasy" is exactly how you described except that it has sexual connotations. Kind if like how it's a little different if we say that something enjoyable rather than pleasurable.

Those are fairly generic names, in my opinion. Don't try and let your name speak for your music, it always comes out cheesy. Do we need anymore metal bands with words like "dark" "hateful" "pain" etc in their names? I really don't think so, but if your band doesn't seek to have much of an identity, then go for it. That's not sarcasm either, some people seek to just jump into the pool, while others enjoy its less-traveled streams.

By the by, wrong forum. Moved.

I think a bizarre name is a good thing, gets you attention. My dads band name was herpes, and even though they had no record deal or anything, a columnist from the daily (respected) newspaper had a column on their name.

Think Joy Division (band and a division of hooker for the nazi army), they would never have gotten big without their name.

Ecstasy is not a bad name, but you would like to rearrange the letters a bit to fit a modern crowd: Xstazy, or something like that...

Most people on UG are teenage boys who think that the only way they can assert their 'dominancy' is by making others feel low and bossing them around. More than likely in real life they are subject to bullying.

Oh shut the **** up dude

Don't be bitter about it, it's a crappy name anyway

I think 'Ecstacy' is a cool name, somebodies probably taken it though -_-

So go for it!
