DEATH METAL BAND NAMES THAT WOULD MAKE MY GRANDMA PUKE

260

As a genre, love it or hate it, you’ve got to admit that metal bands give themselves the most ridiculous and over-the-top names imaginable. Death metal band names are notoriously the most egregious; look no further than the recent announcement of the lineup for Maryland Deathfest VI, highly recommended for a good laugh. Highlights include such head-scratchers as:

  • Torsofuck
  • Squash Bowels
  • Waco Jesus
  • Infected Malignity

Squash bowels — is that supposed to be bowels made of the yellow vegetable, or the act of impacting feces? We may never know.

I can literally hear my grandmother recoiling in horror all the way from Del Boca Vista.
