Just name you band “Blackened”
Waiting for the Cajun jokes....
Just change the In to an Out.
Just as bad, no sexual innuendo, lose-lose, DONE
Can’t wait to hear that stuff with vocals! I’m getting a Suffocation/Fear Factory/Tool/Korn vibe, and I believe the music deserves a much better name.
Is it going to be clean or harsh vocals?
To be honest, your Soundcloud URL read as "Blacking Race" to me. Maybe not the best?
Also a good reason to change it
Thanks man, can't tell you how much I appreciate you like it!! Yeah you gotta hear it with our new singer, he's fucking insanely good! He does it all, and I don't know how lol. He can scream, growl, and sing clean seamlessly and he does it all in each song. I just can't wait to get some vocals recorded. We're planning on recording vocals for "This Is The World We Live In" and "All Will Be Dust" and releasing demos of those two first. We're hoping to start playing out live sometime mid to end of summer.
I'd also got fore everyone has to like the name of his band. Do some more brainstorming and let all band members propose a number of names...
Option 2: choose a name that everyone hates, so you're all in the same boat.
I bet you DIDN'T listen to bands because of their name. Would you click on a YT video from "The Mermaid's Plutonium Stash" or "Monkey Slut Milkshake"?
^ Those names wouldn't stop me from clicking on something. Would be heavily dependant on the discovery method. Given that most discovery services at least attempt to guess what you want to see, there's the "how does this end up in my recommendations" factor. Otherwise it likely comes from a person, and your likelihood to click is more about whether or not you trust this other persons music taste.
To be perfectly honest.. The name "Black in Grace" just sounds like another generic band name that I'll never remember.
At face value I would assume the band is Christian metal. IDK if you guys are actually christian or if you've ever hung around with them, but grace is a really, really popular motif among that group.
It doesnt particularly roll off the tongue.. Lke Nicki said, it just sounds like generic opening band #357.
I've definitely avoided recs due to their name, for example anything with "moon" or "night" is 100% likely to be the bad kind of melodic opera metal. I've yet to give Iwrestledabearonce a chance because it sounds like an obnoxious Jared Dines video. I'd bet quite a few folks go with the "generic name = generic riffs" outlook
dude i just listened to the songs on soundcloud.
lol listen to "tastes like kevin bacon".
A good singer is far more important than a band name. Good singers are VERY hard to come by. Most of 'em suck.
I hate band names. I think all of them suck but cannot ever think of anything better.
I feel the name is just as important as the music if you plan on going anywhere.
With that said I think you should change your name. Not that it is bad because it isn't but IMO it isn't memorable.
No we're not religious lol. I'm agnostic. But good point duder!
There's no good band names, just less bad band names.
The The is the best. Even if your software turns it into "The, The", it'll still be in the same place in the alphabetical listing.
!!! is the worst. It crashed the POS software at one of the music stores I worked at, because it wouldn't accept special characters in the "artist" field.
Listening to some snippets in that SoundCloud link on my lunch break, Rev.
Pretty fucking bad ass, man. Definitely give it all a listen after work. Cool vibe going here.
When I released the second album for my prior electronic industrial project we have a song called "Stag'Nation" and f'ing CDBaby wouldn't let us use the apostrophe so we had to remove it. The thing that annoyed me is famous bands can put essentially whatever they want without issue so why not allow a simple apostrophe?
