Wolf Spider is one of the most stupid band name I've ever come across. Good music though !
It's time to raise the flag of hate !

Ah, i see. I didn't know thename meant "fart".
In english "Pedo" is common slang for a child molester, from the word "pedophile" or "paedophile"(sp).
While i appreciate that a sick sense of humour is a good thing to have in the world of Death Metal, "Pedo" is a really bad idea for a band name if you're hoping to go further than spanish speaking countries.
I doubt you'd even be able to have your records distributed in Europe, (certainly not in the UK), with such a name, and people may be loathe to order anything from you online for fear of a knock on the door from the police, who would be very interested in people buying "pedo" materials from South America.
Just thought it was worth mentioning.

Heavy Load is a terrible name for a great band, sounds to me like a big shit, "Need to go to the toilet, gotta drop a heavy load". It's also the title of a Free song who are a terribly overrated band who bore me to death.

Yeah, I know the english connotations of Pedo, but all the lyrics are in spanish, so I guess is obvious that the band name is in spanish too.
For example, in the reverse case, there's a band called Malas, here "malas" is femenine for bad, so it means "bad girls" and when you see a picture of some guys trying to look really evil, and on the pic says "bad girls" is very funny, but we know that it doesn't actually means that.

I gotta say, i was actually quite nervous about d/ling your demo because of the band name, i really don't want to end up on some Interpol internet pedophile list for d/ling music, i think it could cause you serious problems down the line if your band takes off.
There's no way you could walk down the street in an english speaking country with a "pedo" shirt on, you'd get lynched or beaten to death at best.

But there are bands called Necropaedophile or stuff like that, and I think is foolish to avoid a word in one language for connotations on another. I don't think I'll change the name, I like it.

I can see why you do, if it means "fart" in Spanish, i just think it could limit your chances of being heard by a wider international audience is all, and i reckon the English speaking audience is probably the single biggest for Metal of all kinds, by dint of the USA.
I just feel the name could work against you.

I understand what you mean, and I already thought a lot about it, but finally I decided to make a stand for all spanish speaking people, even if it means the FBI catching me and getting brutally raped in prison :o

You people are nuts. Anthrax is a killer name, and it's not a disease, it's a spore or something, as far as I know. Disastrous Murmur's one of my favourites. Ulysses Siren is a good name. Phlegethon too.

Countess is a stupid name. I don't know what a Manilla Road is. I dislike names witch leave out punctuation - Witches Hammer being one of them. Custard, Squealer, Accept -agreed. I thought Death was a stupid name, though I got used to it.

I never thought Judas Priest was a good name, but I got used to it. And initially I didn't like the name Impetigo, but now it's one of my favorite bands.

I've always thought Judas Priest is a great band name.

IMO Deathspell Omega, Shape Of Despair and especially Gloomy Grim :lol: are stupid band names. Dum Dum Bullet, Paradize, Shakespeare, Aragorn and Wild Pussy are some what silly too :)
