Twelve Foot Ninja

Twelve Foot Ninja are a rock band from Melbourne, Victoria. They formed in 2007. Melbourne Australia based Twelve Foot Ninja are independent and self-funded. Their music and lyrics are inspired by a story (written by guitarist Stevic) of a ninja's mission to restore balance in a world headed toward self-inflicted catastrophe. Sound familiar? Twelve Foot Ninja describe themselves as a hybrid of genres - metal, dub, yacht rock, funk and world music.

Sydonia

Sydonia are probably most best described as a melodic metal band. Whilst their music can sometimes represent that of anger and pain, as in "Andwethoughthewasmad" off the EP (Man)ipulate, it can also sometimes represent that of calm, soft and somewhat relaxing taste, as in "Taste More", also from (Man)ipulate. However, this variety in sound further intensifies the talent that is posessed in this band. Lead singer, Dana Roskvists, explores as many regions of the larynx as you may have thought possible. Lyrically and musically this band will not fail to amaze.

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.
