I'm starting up a new original metal project with an ancient Egyptian context, I'll be writing the songs with a lot of harmonic minor/major keys for flavor, so I'm looking for a name that fits. If I pick a name you come up with I'll send you a free CD when it's done and I'll mail you a beer tongue This is going to be a studio project until there's enough material for a CD. One name I came up with is Gates Of Anubis but my guitarist thinks it sounds more like the name of a song. I'm all ears!

Nile sounds cool, if I could find another word or short phrase that works with that.

Man, it's difficult for me to recommend names because although I'm fascinated by Egyptian culture and mythology, I'm not very in tune with the symbolism and true meaning of a lot of things. And people who know a lot more than me about it would probably have a totally different interpretation, so I wouldn't want to recommend anything that has a meaning other than something I know about, you know?

But Gates of Anubis sounds pretty cool.

I can't wait to hear your tunes. I love music like that!

The Egyptian word for gold is Nubia. I found it while searching for the Egyptian word for metal.

I also found this reference:

THEBAN TRIAD. . This consist of the gods Amun, his wife Mut, and their son Khons.

I can't find the exact word for "metal", but I would be willing to bet that it would sound pretty interesting.

I don't think you should do anything involving Nile. It's too similar to the band Nile. You'll be compared to them no matter what you do, so the less you seem like a total rip off of them, the better.

YES! Especially cool if your songs had a lot of arpeggios

Any idea how Theban is pronounced? Some of their words don't sound like they look, I thought Anubis would be "An you bis" but it's actually "an Ooh bus"

So Amun's wife is a Mut? Laughing no wonder they still wear veils to this day Wink

Well, I know that in Paganism, it's pronounced thee-ben. But the Egyptian usage is different from that. Still, I believe you could get away with saying it the same way.

Does that mean I get a free CD? Wink

This band has a decent sound, nothing Egyptian about them but I guess they're a pretty good Anubis farao
