Other Bands named “Dimension” or “X”

Here's an odd thing that I've been thinking about ever since I chose the name, "Dimaension X": I am not the first, nor will I be the last musician to use the terms “Dimension” or “X” in their music project’s name. I’m sure there and more than you can fire a photon torpedo at. Let’s try list all of them that I can think of:

Dimaension X (me, of course)
Symphony X (you should know them if you are a metal fan!)
Project X (Derek Sherinian’s instrumental project with Tony Macalpine and Virgil Donati)
X-Japan (an odd prog-rock-metal band from Japan)
X (one of the early SoCal punk-new wave bands)
Dimension X (not me, a prog metal band like Dream Theater from Indiana)
Dimension (another prog-metal band like Dream Theater)
Dementia Absurda (a noise-drone project in Croatia)
X28 Project (a prog-rock music project from Pennsylvania)
Dimension X (not me again, but another Soundclick artist who plays mainly space-ambient music)
The 3rd Dimension (a band from Washington DC)
The 4th Dimension (apparently, John McLaughlin’s latest backup band?!)
Dimension Zero (an electro-goth band from Salt Lake City)
Dimension Zero (a melodic death metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden
Static-X (an industrial nu-metal band)
Band X (a cover band)
Lady Sunshine and the X Band (an R&B band from Ann Arbor, Michigan)
Racer X (Paul Gilbert’s annoying speed-metal band, talented, but annoying)
Generation X (a punk band, actually Billy Idol’s first band!)
Lazarus-X (an alternative-indie rock band from Houston)

Like I said, ... not the first, most likely not the last ...

"I Am Become Daevel" - the new album, something old, something new

Okay, everyone seems confused with the title of my new album, "I Am Become Daevel"

What the hell is "Daevel" ??? Is this a foreign language? The name of a mythlogical being? Huh?

At work, we have new nametags on our cubicles. With our first name and last initial. Mine is "Dave L." The "L" is just a bit too close to the "Dave", so it looks like my name is "DaveL".

My humorous new boss & co-workers started calling me Davel, (pronounced like the Russian name Pavel - pah-vel), and it has stuck. So at work, I have become Davel.

Twisted sense of humor I have, I decided to add a little catch-phrase above my name tag, adding "I Am Become" to it, similar to the old phrase "I Am Become Death" from the quote frequently attributed to Oppenheimer at the testing of the first nuclear bomb, but which is originally from he Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita:

"If the radiance of a thousand suns were to
burst forth at once in the sky, that would
be like the splendor of the Mighty One."
"I am become death, the destroyer of worlds."

So I decided this would be a cool (and kind of weird) album title, with a slight adjustment in spelling to match my odd spelling choice of the word "dimaension".

Davel becomes Daevel. I Am Become Daevel.

It also kind of describes how I am going through some changes in my life. I believe I am at a crossroads-turning point-crucible in my current amateur musical exploits, and life in general. Am I getting too old for metal? Sure I'm the same age as Kerry King, Dave Lombardo, Dave Mustaine, and Glenn Benton. I'm younger than Steve Vai, Arjen A. Lucassen, and Jaz Coleman. I'm waaayyyyy younger than Ozzy, Tony Iommi, Dio, Rob Halford and Lemmy. But I feel that I am at a turning point in my listening and playing enjoyment. I feel the need for more atmosphere and expression, rather than rage and aggression. I am becoming something more than just an old metalhead. I am becoming something more than just a guitarist. All things in my life are currently changing (job, health, approaching middle-age, my son in college and becoming an adult, etc., ... ). I Am Become Daevel, the next evolutionary process in my life.

So, ... what is next for Dimaension X? Only the future will tell.
