I like the idea of having a section for pronouncers on each bands page. I frequently hear people mispronounce Satyricon, Dimmu Borgir and even Sepultura. I still don't know if I'm saying Sabaton properly.

My entire national scene gets pissed everytime they see someone pronouncing "Celtic Frost" appropriately.

That being said, listing the pronouncers is not a bad idea.

How come, OC? Didn't quite get that one.

@OP: Cool idea.

It sounds cool, but man, I can already see the fights and disagreements about this. There's numerous cases where the artists within bands can't even decide how to properly pronounce their own bands' names. That's not even including the cases where whole groups of fans argue one way or another...

It should be included just for certain bands then? or bands with a complicated pronunciation?

Some already have that in their notes, like Eluveitie
