Call me stupid but I’ve only just discovered that when it comes to naming heavy metal bands, people lack a little imagination. Not least me. In my first nanowrimo in nov 2004, there was a small event at Earl’s Court. The main character was getting shot in front of a capacity crowd. Naturally there needed to be a support act, they needed to be loud and controversial so through the magic of my wonderful imagination I evented a very loud band and called them DeathStar. One of their lead guitarists was called Bloomberg Necessity, their other lead guitarist is currently called Exploding Peter. This may change later, I’m note entirely happy with that name. And seems like I have to change the name of the band. There is already Swedish band called Deathstars.
They also have multiple guitarist with silly names:
* Andreas “Whiplasher Bernadotte” Bergh – Vocals
* Emil “Nightmare Industries” Nödtveidt – Guitars and Keyboards
* Jonas “Skinny Disco” Kangur – Bass and Backing vocals
* Ole “Bone W Machine” Öhman – Drums
* Eric “Cat Casino” – Guitars
I shouldn’t be terribly surprised and going to have to go back to the drawing board. And there are several hundred other obvious names, I can’t use:
