Hello fellow metalheads.
I can't find an appealing band name for my atmospheric black metal band.
Any suggestions guys? (band names containing one word only are more preferable)
Thank you !

What are some of the themes in your band? Any books or movie influences? You could just use words from what influences and encompasses your sound.

Persekala

It's an old Finnish word for a shaman/necromancer, part of Sámi mythology and that. Ancient Finns trembled in fear at the mention of Persekala.

I've always found the Abhramic religions are rife with great names, words and phrases which are inexplicably weighted. There's an excerpt from The Ascension of Moses which talks about meeting Samael, the angel of death, in the Seventh Heaven and he is so big it would take 500 years to cross the surface of his face and is covered from head to toe in eyes. That's some Lovecraftian shit right there.

In the same passage it refers to two angels called Af (Anger) and Hemah (Wrath) who are forged out of chains of black and red fire. I always fancied calling a BM project something like AFHEMAH in homage to them.

General Talmudic words are cool in general to be honest. Like Elohim which basically means 'Gods'.

"Gloom" would be a gloomy one-word band name.
