Some of my favourite bands have stupid names, and probably stupid lyrics too (since most of them are indecipherable I'll never know).

Corpse Vomit? Cock and Ball Torture? Corpsefucking Art? Aborted? Abortion? Anal Bleeding? Dying Fetus? Intestinal Disgorge? Prostitute Disfigurement? Gorgasm?

The list goes on forever...

Grind isn't exactly known for it's creativity on these things. In most cases I think it's meant to be thought of ironically.
Grind isn't know for creativity, you're right. Those names are all OK, I guess, but it's shit when new bands come along and can't be bothered coming up with a name other than a slightly modified version of a well-established name. Like I said earlier, there are a core group of words that go in to making a stock-standard death/grind name than scream "I have no mind of my own". "Anal", "Intestinal", Um.... even "Cunt". :P It's like you've heard one band name; you've heard them all, these days.

If it had a sufficently grotesque cover art, I'd probably buy an album from Anal Intestinal Cunt.


Haha Nick, heres my favourite made up band name, "Dual Anal And The Uprising Epitaph "
[Psychonaut] Sounds like Black Sabbath having rough sex with NWOBHM while 'early' Slayer jerks off in the corner  :cunning:

Death Fucking Cunt?

Precisely! Irony!

No one understands the intricate subtleties of grind.

An orgasm is what I need.
Your blood is spilling, the sight is thrilling.
To cum I need to see you bleed.

The irony of that name lies in the fact that it really doesn't make sense. It's clever that way; the fact the words strung together are open to interpretation and conjure up some sort of wierd image. Who/What exactly is a Death Fucking Cunt?  :) It's offensive but it has a unique slant...
A one-dimensional name like GutPunchAbortion, however, can only be interpreted one way and relies on the taboo nature of abortion to try and "shock" people.
I may be missing something, but I'd love it if someone could point out the irony in a name like that?
Everyone has seen it a thousand times before..... dream up a shit band name, grab (ie. steal) a jpeg image of some porn/snuff/rotten.com and record a lo-fi demo track on Cool-Edit with drum machine, super-pitch shifted vocals with lyrics about rape/snuff/torture. Then tell everyone you're a brutal cunt with the sickest, most twisted shocking Death/grind band (on myspace!)... I'm getting bored just typing this  :P

The irony of GutPunchAbortion is that for an abortion to be required you'd have to have sex with a woman...and thats just gross.
Vagrancy wasn't it? That's gonna look real good on his grave stone in Arlington: Here lies John Rambo, winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor, survivor of countless incursions behind enemy lines. Killed for vagrancy in Jerkwater, USA.

The irony is they know they're being idiots and are playing up to it, c'mon Dan!

I don't frequent myspace so I don't know what goes on there, but if there's people actually taking those themes seriously and thinking it makes them 'ard cunts, that is indeed retarded.

Personally, I like to think of band names and lyrical themes along those lines as always being ironic/sarcastic/farcical/purposefully immature/etc. Even when Abuse went out of their way to post a rant on their website to say they're dead serious about their rape and torture themes and people shouldn't laugh at their music, to me that just made them all the more hilarious.

By the way, you drum for Cuntscrape, HELLO! :D Perfect example of what I mean.

Clearly it's time to close that myspace account. ;)

To those who find the the humour in the subject matter; I take my hat off to them. Which (ironically) is probably the large majority of of the bands who have names like the ones discussed here (I just don't get their humour)... I will never know if they're serious, or taking the piss if I dismiss them because of their name. At the end of the day it's the music that matters and I do like my fair share of bands who have nonsensical band names/songs. I just like it when the concept/theme of the band adds an extra, interesting dimension.
In regard to Cuntscrape, I'm sure everything that is mentioned  in the lyrics has, or will be done by at least one person in the band at one time or another... you know it to be true ;)

I find the humour in pretty much anything sick/disgusting/controversial, that much should be obvious by now. :D

Probably be a good idea to link the thumbnails to the fullsize images, you can do this by highlighting the image text and then clicking on the 'Insert Hyperlink' icon
Then at the start add url=whatever the link is, i.e.

Code: [Select]
[url=http://swillimot.gallery.netspace.net.au/albums/album02/Chaos01.jpeg][img width=150 height=112]http://swillimot.gallery.netspace.net.au/albums/album02/Chaos01.thumb.jpeg[/img][/url]



Which would produce:


So people can click on it.

I've been meaning to add my opinions about the discussion of the results of the awards and the show, but just been busy.. I'll be sure to add my two cents soon though.  8)

In the meanwhile, I've added a photo gallery to Western Front, (which I've been meaning to do for ages) and I have added an album of photos from the Australian Metal Awards 2009.

Some awesome shots thanks to Kierra Thorn, so check them out:
