    While some of these names are abhorrently strange, many aren't exactly bad. They just happened to have been appropriated by bands that cultivate that particular image, logo style, overdone/overhyped sound, etc.

    How the hell is the name Heaven Shall Burn "fucking teenage faggotry"? What is teenage about that name? Was Marduk's album title "Heaven Shall Burn...When We Are Gathered" also teenage by the same definition, or was it closer to a 20-something?

    One name that I think is especially stupid is Here Comes the Kraken. Something about a band starting their name with "Here Comes" strikes me very negatively.

    The name Thou Shalt Suffer sounds a bit misleading in regards of genre these days.

    My local used CD store has had one of their albums for quite a while. It's intriguing. It's not metal, btw.

    No favs, just that most people can argue/give an opinion without the need to throw some personal insult out at another member. It only takes a little common sense to figure that out, and if you can't muster up a little of that, then you get banned for a while. Nothing to do with "manning up" but all to do with bitch slapping members who can't easily follow that simple rule. DD I'm pretty sure will find out before long (there's your last chance DD, and no reply needed).
