    My band has decided that we need to choose between two names:

    Ethereal Darkness

    -OR-

    Tikdoshe

    Our styles should be pretty diverse. Everything from death metal to black metal to thrash metal to tribal hardcore to two-chord goregrind or whatever.

    The latter is the name of an African legend. A dwarfish creature with half a body(one ear, one eye, one arm, etc.) that hunts human prey in the night. If he defeats you, you die a horrible death. If you win, he teaches you the arts of medicine and magic. Tikdoshe is the Zulu word for it, but it also has other names in other tribal languages all across Africa. Many of these tribes had never contacted one another, yet they had the same legend...

    The former name is one that refers to a celestial darkness, one that will judge all souls come Armageddon. It also happens to be the name of a video game designing company with people that look like this:

    Please provide your opinion on which is a better name. Thank you.

    Tikdoshe sounds cooler and less cheesy.

    Ethereal Darkness is too typical.

    I'm sick of the word Ethereal.

    Tic Douche is much better :)

    Almost.

    I know that I kind of tipped the balance in Tikdoshe's favor from the beginning, but all of you have pretty much reiterated why I liked the name better in the first place.

    I was actually thinking about how much fun you could have with an album cover if that was your name.

    As for updates, the other people in the band are liking Ethereal Darkness for some reason. Probably because it sounds all "dark" and "metal".

    *sighs*
