makeitmetal.net: generate metal band names with deep learningJuly 25, 2021
Make it Metal is a deep learning metal band name generator. I've seen a couple of these around, but as a fan of metal I wanted to incorporate some genre information into the names: every metal fan can guess that Bongface is a stoner doom band and Sadistic Annihilation is death metal, possibly blackened.
The project is built on top of Max Woolf's textgenrnn project, which has some pre-trained language models that make it easy to get started. I ported the model to TensorFlow.js so that the band names can be generated live in your browser (and I don't have to run a server for the site).
Try it out here! If you want to see some more technical details, the code I used to train the model is up on Gitlab here.
