Ok, there are six Legion (US) in the archives. When looking for one of them, it's a real bitch to click the right one. I propose that a somewhat less luck-dependant system is implemented, simply presenting the state next to the name - or if such bandnames are renamed to Legion (US, OH) and so on.

I had a vague idea that it had been suggested, but I figured either way, it'd need reinforcement. I hope it'll happen.

I think that the best way to solve this problem would be to show the band's genre instead of the state / city.

To use my example with Legion (US) again, three of them are listed as heavy metal. It's more or less standard to separate bands based on geography. Metal-Archives already do so, see country codes and or bands like SA Slayer and Warning SF. A combination of the two methods might be the best choice.
