Corvus

There are at least two artists called Corvus: 1) Australian black metal. http://www.myspace.com/corvusvoid 2) A solo artist from the Eastern States who has two songs available for listening at MySpace, "Arthur Radley" and "Well Might". http://www.myspace.com/ccorvuss "Denise austin once said "you got it!" and corvus now exists. I apologise for my shitty voice and recordings but you miss the point if you think for a second that it isn't all about SONGS AND IDEAS the same way that N*SYNC was more about dancing.

Fair To Midland

Fair to Midland are a progressive rock band formed in Sulphur Springs, Texas in 1998. Anyone who thinks the phrase “it’s all been done before” carries real weight clearly has yet to encounter Fair to Midland. Dark, heavy, moving, cryptic, progressive art rock collides with flourishes of old-school country, Americana and Delta Blues in their sound. These Lonestar boys genre-defying and boundary obliterating ocean of sound righteously upends the old phrase “fair to middling” from which their Texas-ified moniker was drawn.

Art of Wor

After 7 years as a monk, Fergus returned to his first love: METAL.
He promptly threw himself into writing, and within 2 months had an album’s worth of material, recruited band members Andrew Thomas (bass) and Dave Nygaard (drums) and later Tim Davies (guitar) signed a recording and management agreement with PLW. Art of Wor delivers a uniquely brutal yet melodic sound.
Currently just released Blood will have Blood on iTunes -
