Best Band Names Game

Recommended Posts

Rammstein

(It’s a well known cliché that only bands who sing in English can hope to succeed. Then along come this Berlin band, proudly writing German lyrics, and they storm the world. Their martial, anthemic sound has proved to be captivating, while the Rammstein live show gives a new meaning to the term ‘spectacular’)

The Young Gods

One of the most important names on the industrial scene, The Young Gods were formed in Switzerland in 1985. Since their formation they influenced many rock and electronic artists including Pitchshifter, Mike Patton, Sepultura, The Edge, Devin Townsend and David Bowie; i.e. asked in 1995 if his album "Outside" was influenced by Nine Inch Nails, Bowie answered: "The band that I was actually quite taken with was three guys from Switzerland called The Young Gods... I'd been aware of them previous to knowing about Nine Inch Nails."

Krokus

Founded in 1975, Krokus is a true legend, in the same league, or almost, as more storied hard rock bands like AC/DC and Van Halen. Honorary citizens of Memphis, Tennessee, they have sold more records than any other Swiss band (15 million) and were the first Swiss act to fill the Hallenstadion, temple of Switzerland's biggest indoor rock concerts. Krokus is still touring after more than 2,000 live performances

Gotthard

A group steeped in the old school Classic Rock style. They come from  the canton of Ticino, an Italian-speaking region of Switzerland, and were begun in 1992 by singer Steve Lee and guitarist Leo Leoni. Their eponymous first album was released the same year. Gotthard are hugely popular in their native land with one million album sales representing 1-in-8 of the population. But they have enjoyed success around Europe too with albums such as 'Open', 'Need to Believe' and 'Firebirth'.

Tragically Steve Lee died in a roadside accident in Nevada, USA in 2010. After much soul-searching he was replaced by Swiss-born Australian Nic Maeder and the band went on with a successful new album called 'Bang' in 2014.Check out just some of their top rockers with 'Anytime, Anywhere', 'Lift U Up', 'Sister Moon', One Life, One Soul', 'Heaven', 'Feel What I Feel' and 'Starlight'.
