Dogs Of War

There seems to be more than one Dogs of War band, this is the Bio from Australias Metal version: Formed in 2003, hailing from Perth’s northern suburbs, Dogs of War have carved an indelible niche in the Perth music scene. Fiercely independent from word go, their unique blend of polyrhythmic metal and confronting stage presence, continues to crush and confuse peers and admirers alike. Featuring odd time signatures, often belligerent tempo changes and an abrasive dissonance, Dogs of War are rhythmically based, progressively melodic, and brutally powerful.

The Cannanes

The Cannanes have been described as 'the world's most indie band' by people with no understanding of the word 'indie'. Despite never having a manager, agent or signing a record deal they have toured the world, produced numerous recordings (numerous meaning 'more than one'), and been recognised internationally as one of Australia's best known bands (some recognition!). Even Kurt Cobain listed the Cannanes as a band he liked in his journals (but nowhere else).
