Fiction

There are multiple artists/bands under the name of Fiction. 1) Fiction (Japanese): Originally formed in Nagoya, they were called Gille' Loves. After struggling almost for a decade to gain recognition, they moved to Tokyo and changed their name to Fiction. The reason for the name change is said to be because many fans took the dark gothic but sensual world created through their music too seriously. In response, the band claimed that everything is just 'fiction'. Fiction was largely influenced by numerous 80s new wave British bands such as Bauhaus and Joy Division.

Dark Earth

There are 4 bands named Dark Earth. 1) After seemingly disappearing for 4 years, everything that DARK EARTH brought to the metal scene was all but forgotten; heavy melodic riffs, ball-tearing blast beats, blistering guitar solos & a TIGHT live show.

Bohuslav Martinů

Bohuslav Martinů; December 8, 1890—August 28, 1959) was a Czech composer of modern classical music, who was educated in the classic romantic style and deliberately withdrew after the First World War from the previous generation of teachers. He went through a trial period of expressionism and constructivism, and became an admirer of the current technical developments (orchestral sentences Half-time, La Bagarre) and jazz period as well (Kuchyňské revue (Kitchen Revue)). Of all of the post-war avant-garde styles, neo-classicism influenced him the most.

Divokej Bill

Divokej Bill=Wild Bill
An 8-piece Czech band from Úvaly near Prague, formed in 1996. DB is both hated and loved by many because of its simple but sometimes quite catchy lyrics and music where we can hear many instruments, but is not too complex in the first place.
It is hard to define what genre Divokej Bill is. Sometimes its music is defined as folk rock, celtic rock, country and so on; members think it might be "redneck rock" as they are from a small town and are influenced by it.
