How about just plain ANGEL, the only band whose logo reads the same upside down?
Any band that's used Michael Whelan/Elric book-cover art and bases songs off the Elric books (and yet their name is from LotR, so go figure) is fine by me!
I'm a little surprised no-one's done it before.
Yeah, I've noticed a relative lack of metal bands beginning with "R" as compared to, say, "S" or "T." I dunno why, but there it is.....
Hey Statsman, when you make posts like this, you should put bands who's name fits the letter clue in yellow or some other eye catching colour that doesn't mean yes or no.cowboy71 wrote: ↑Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:36 pmKalmah high up in the top 100.

I think Maurizio would love the opportunity to hook up with their tour partners sooner than later, and a cruise would always be a wonderful vacation. I think his band Ex Deo should be invited to play so he can hook up with the Soulfly crew and get a nice relaxing cruise before starting their tour as Kataklysm
And half (17, by my very quick count?) are in the top 100. 3 in the top 10. Seems good.

And the #4 most requested band probably gets 45 minutes. Headlining means nothing to cruisers, we like the good obscure shit.
