band name

Post by DEAD†CROSS »

so i know this is super lame. BUT...
i'm starting up a new project that's going to be more live band oriented (guitar, vox, sometimes live drums) and i need a good witch house inspired name since it's going to have some of that influence worked into it. i've been racking my brain for ideas and can't come up with anything good. the only things i've got are these:

eagle†▲†lake (pronounced eagle mountain lake) - cool but too long
sex cult (already taken)
sex cave (meh)

if you guys could help that would be the greatest thing!

First, Some really awesome bands have had long names.

But, just of the top of my head.

Winter Coven
Blood Frost
Insidethisdarkroom
Black Math
Dark Aeons
Hide Bombs In Book

idk, for real. lol Those are more like black metal names.

Don't worry and don't ask random people for a name for YOUR project. :roll:
I'm sure you'll find, for yourself, a name that fit your stuff and makes sense.

I agree. That was the problem I saw in the EBM "industrial" scene I was in for so long. People got really immersed in these tropes and cliches, and weren't truly making music or themes that represented themselves. It's a good idea to just quiet the noise and just think of something random that really intrigues and inspires you for a band name. And for production and sound direction, happy accidents and experimentation are always a good thing.
So if a name like M†RRORG▲Z3, )))0((( or L▲ST SHORE means something to you or whatever it is, than that's a good barometer. But also don't be afraid to use a name completely outside the bounds of anything mysterious sounding. I also suggest not to anyone in particular, but start or rediscover a lot of different styles, from ethnic/middle eastern, trip hop, new age, african, to jazz, downtempo, soundtrack scores, etc.

let it come to you. it'll be something in your day to day life and it'll just hit you like, "damn, that's something."

the band Between the Buried And Me got their name from lyrics from a counting crows song.
