 Gehenna is not hell, is it?
The word "Gehenna" is properly translated "hell" in the King James Bible.
Even though the word "Gehenna" comes from the Valley of Hinnom, simply rendering it as "garbage dump" or "valley of waste disposal" or "burning garbage" could not be an accurate translations, because that's not what Jesus and the apostles meant when they used the word.
And "hell" accurately translates the meaning of the word "Gehenna." "Gehenna" is not a translation; it is just a transliteration (translating letters, but not meaning).

 Gehenna - International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
Gehenna is a transliteration from the Aramaic form of the Hebrew ge-hinnom, "valley of Hinnom." This latter form, however, is rare in the Old Testament, the prevailing name being "the valley of the son of Hinnom." Septuagint usually translates; where it transliterates the form is different from Gehenna and varies.
In the New Testament (King James Version margin) Gehenna occurs in Matthew 5:22,29,30; 10:28; 18:9; 23:15,33; Mark 9:43,15,47; Luke 12:5; James 3:6.
This is not to be explained on the principle that the New Testament speaks metaphorically of the state after death in terms of the body; it presupposes the resurrection.

 BNR Metal Pages -- Gehenna   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Though Gehenna's most recent album (Murder) is in the death metal field, most of this Norwegian band's time has been spent in the fl metal camp.
With only scant traces of their fl roots, Gehenna has really gone full-tilt toward death metal, with even the vocal style abruptly shifting from the typical fl metal snarls of the early days toward a low-pitched death growl.
After several years of inactivity, the band is back with a new album, and somewhat of a new direction, as WW drops the death metal tendencies of their last couple of albums in favor of an old-school fl metal approach.
