I have been invited to be a member of a new multinational group calling it self ARKASSAS.

It sounded like ARKANSAS and it's got the word ASS in it. I was fine with it at first, but then I thought, having ASS in the name is just begging for folks to make fun of the music if they don't like it and gining them an extra joke to throw in. LIke namig your ban BOLLOCKSOFKINGS or something. It's amost pretentious but almost funny. Please let me know wha you think smile.gif I know folks seem too busy this summer to reply much but as a personal favor please do take a minute for me here if you feel I've ever taken a minute for your smile.gif

I agree Todd, doesn't roll off the tongue either.

Does it have a meaning? What kind of music is it?

I always liked the thought of "Brazen Bull" if it's a metal band, google it wink.gif

Thanks smile.gif Yeah, I talked to the bad leader and I think I finally convinced him to take "ASS" out of the name. Just seems like begging to be the "butt" of cheap jokes: ) He is thinking on new names now. I've warned him against anything with "Boll" OX"

I really wanted to help but these things come to me at random moments. I never come up with good stuff when I sit down and think. If I come up with anything, I'll post here.

Archaxes sounds nice because it has "axes" in it biggrin.gif

Good news!!! Despite the fact he has already registered the domain, (with ASS) in it, I got him to scratch it and now it's ARKASAS which is a bit like Arknasas but at least ASS is gone smile.gif This is an international collaborative project much like my DIVINUS MORTUS projuect except that the leader of this new project is the german guy from DARKNESS LIGHT who I did that guest solo for. They must have liked it as they recruited me as the guitar guy!!! Wooho!! smile.gif

Will do! We are just getting the band together so just now putting demo songs together. As soon as possible though I'll share something as I'd love to get some feedback! It's probably going to have a EuroMetal vibe to it as most of the members are from European Metal bands and then I'm playing lead guitar. I should fit right in smile.gif

"Som fod i hose", as we would say here. I guess it's similar to "fits like a glove", but not entirely.
