Not only is Divided By Friday’s style varied from the rest of the pop-rock pack, but it’s their musical maturity and attitude towards the industry that really sets them apart. Unlike most other bands, Divided By Friday’s sense of who and where they are is strong. Working hard from the ground floor up, they plan on selling themselves through their powerful music, not through flashy, lit up logos or other myspace garble.

There are at least two bands with the name Ex Libris. One of them is a sludge/stoner metal band from Wilmington, Germany. This article is about the Dutch one with this name.
The Dutch band Ex Libris brings new power and a fresh, exciting sound to the world of symphonic heavy metal. Combining the melodic structure of classical music with progressive licks and hooks, Ex Libris delivered their first full-length album “Amygdala” in 2008 to great reviews. Frontwoman Dianne van Giersbergen combines powerful, soaring vocals with a dynamic range that is, frankly, intimidating.
Proudly not duking the stats since 2002. "Their music takes you on a very long walk, punctuated by storms and lulls. Towards that distant land whose name is Australia."

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.

British Thrash Metal masters The More I See release their second, full-on monster of an album, ‘The Unholy Feast’, on Transcend Records, distributed by Cargo, on June 16th.
