Moribund also means Approaching death; about to die,or not growing or not changing for your whole life.

In what language does Moribund mean these things? Or did you just make up a word and assign it some meanings you like? I ask because in my opinion the meanings you give sound decent enough, but the actual name itself, 'Moribund,' does nothing for me. But then, I only speak English, so mayhaps that's the problem there, huh?

I'd change your band name too, no offense this is supposed to be helpful. Only because Moribund seems like a pretty common word in the metal community (search Encyclopedia Metallum), Moribund Records etc. Maybe in the 80s a band name like Slayer or something worked, but now with so many metal bands out there past and present you don't want to get lost. That's my two cents after 10 seconds of thoughts. It's like calling your band Leviathan - sure it's an awesome word but if you're name isn't original, how original will people think your music is?

...but on the other hand, there are a few bands who are getting noticed now purely for having a retro sound, and they have a name which goes with that too (i.e. Mutant). So I'm sure you've figured out what your band needs.

Yeah, there's several bands named Leviathan. If I remember correctly there's at least 4 just in the U.S., lol.

Leviathan just reminds me of Matodon's album.
