Ever feel like some band names are just so simple and unoriginal that they're just brilliant without trying?

So, band names that HAD to happen. I'll start with an easy one.


Death.

It's the primordial word of gloom and doom. Nuff said.


When I really think about it, the band name "Metallica" is fucken' hopeless/lame. But, someone making a band with the word "metal" in it had to happen sometime or other, and they arn't the only one's (Metal Church).

What do you think? Album titles as well, please.
As a result of listing <><'s reports I was banned.

Dying Fetus. What could sound more tragic/evil/gloomy than the thought of an unborn child already dying. It was bound to happen.

Or how about "The Band". It's so blatantly simple, but somebody thought it was clever.

This probably isn't all that inevitable, but Prostitute Disfigurement is one. Something along the lines of beating the fuck out of and mutilating hookers is pretty metal.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

It made me learn the true meaning of a smile

Black Sabbath, duh.

Deicide is pretty bloody obvious. So is Hate and Devourment. Iron Maiden too, IMO. Decapitated too, Venom, all I can think of for now.

EDIT: Possessed.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Witchcraft
Anything involving iron and steel - Iron Maiden, Ironsword, Conquest of Steel, Ritual Steel, etc

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

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.

Yeah, got to agree with that. Nile doesn't seem to be an immediately 'metal' name to me.

So we are basically saying that any stereotypical name is obvious. Because, to be honest, I don't see how Tool, Helloween, Arch Enemy or Nile are remotely obvious.

Helloween not obvious?
there's like thousands and thousands of 'Helloween' festivals/parties and so on

but Nile really isn't
