The Vanishing by Dana Schechter Regarding the band name: I’ve always been enamoured with the natural world, especially for those things that exist on a scale either too small or too expansive, for human eyes. The mysteries they hold are inspiring and humbling. For me, the name refers to the movements inside my body, my…

Black Lotus

Sons of Saturn by Hug Ballesta The Black Lotus name came as the ideal concept for the project while I read Conan The Barbarian stories by R. E. Howard. One of them talks about the black lotus pollen.

Elixir

Voyage of the Eagle by Phil Denton I think it is hard to choose the right name for your band. We started in 1983 and toyed with the names Purgatory and Hellfire, but both were rather corny. We wanted something a bit more subtle. To us, Elixir is an alchemist’s potion, created through magic and…

Falconer

From a Dying Ember by Stefan Weinerhall I chose the name Falconer since I felt it represented both freedom and pride in a way. Also, it had that notion of medieval times that fitted our concept. Plus, it short and easy.  I knew that ‘From a Dying Ember’ would become our final album and felt…

Feuerschwanz

Das Elfte Gebot by Jarne Hodinsson Feuerschwanz started 16 years ago as a comedy folk-rock band, that‘s why the band name is basically a german dick-joke. “Schwanz” means both tail and dick in German. Today, the Feuerschwanz is a dragon with a fiery tail (of course), but there might be some quirky minds out there…
