I need a cool and meaningful stage name. I'm looking for something in a older language, and preferably the name of an ancient deity of fire and death. But I don't know anything about ancient mythology, I turn to the pit for help!

Vulcan. The Roman god of fire and metalworking, if I recall correctly.

I was actually planning on using it as a band name... but I can part with it.

Hephaestus (sp?). Smith of the gods.
Never age. Never die. Live forever in that last white-hot moment, when the crowd screamed. When every note was a heartbeat. Burn across the sky.

That was actually my first idea, but peple are liable to mispronounce/misspell Hephaestus.

so far...this threads hilarious...

i don't think there's an ancient god of fire and death though...or at least a real one...hephaestus was a metal worker, vulcan was a volcano guy...but not the cool kind...and synyster gates is gay....


EDIT: your not going to find a meaningful name for fire and death.... kind of obvious if you think about it...especially in the pit, i mean...it's the pit

Vulcan and Hephaestus are actually one and the same, seeing as Roman as gods are basically hijacked Greek gods with different names.

Regardless, he could call himself either - no one's going to look into it very much. Hell, Bono was originally "Bono Vox," when it should have been "Vox Bono."

I'm pretty sure you won't find one of both fire and death, but why not go with Azrael? You don't ever hear him called that, but everyone knows the Grim Reaper!
