I have noticed some bands doing that lately, some may have a goos reason to keep things that way, some may have not, some are good, some aren't, whatever...

DsO, Gh*st, Sect Pig, Temple Below, Void Meditation Cult are the ones tha come to my mind right now, which other ones do you know that are actually good?

And please, do not turn this into a 'Gh*st' thread!

The Rhinocervs tapes are technically from and "unknown" band.

*Edit: Also, I don't know if MGLA should count here. The two main guys are from Kriegsmaschine and have their pictures and affiliated bands listed on Metal Archives.

Dragged into sunlight are one of the greatest examples of the anon style, they hit the nail on the head with the hatred for mankind release. there is an old interview somewhere, where they explain why they intentionally hide their names, great interview.
also Hellfire from sweeden (I think) also dont mention members. I think they only released the one LP but its such a great record, they have that early bathory sound but GRIMMERR!

Anonymity draws needless attention to superficial aspects of a band. Some claim that revealing identities takes attention away from the music, but the inverse tends to be the case. It seems that once a band reaches a certain degree of exposure, people are incapable of taking the music at face-value and neglecting speculation on who the musicians are.

Perhaps there was a time when it was more feasible, but nowadays it's just a vain endeavor. Social media has spoiled it.

I tend to agree, but I think it works really well with bands that are not too famous (i.e. are not Ghost). I think anonymity can have some great artistic value. The more I hear about some musicians, the less I like their stuff...

Have any revealed identities been detrimental to said band's reputation? The people in such projects seem to be ordinary and decent. It's not like all those bands have scumbag rip-off degenerates trying to keep their past crimes from tainting their budding endeavors, y'know?

I agree, though, anonymity can definitely compliment art... but it's tricky to pull off without it being a double-edged sword.
