Twelve Foot Ninja are often classified as heavy fusion or progressive hard rock but whatever genre you call them, they are known for their seamless genre hopping, soaring melodies over heavy rock, and witty music videos – they take an authentic approach to each style and tie it all together to deliver an inimitable sonic flavor. Stamped with a five-star album review by Blunt Magazine, Twelve Foot Ninja has been described as “reggae, Fate of Nations-era Robert Plant rock, space-rock, djent, Queensrychean hard rock and more, yet they somehow manage to tie it all together without sounding too ADHD…if you loved Faith No More’s King for a Day, you’ll feel right at home in either of Twelve Foot Ninja’s album Silent Machine and Outlier.
Twelve Foot Ninja is Kin Etik on vocals, Stevic MacKay on guitar, Damon McKinnon on bass, Shane “Russ” Russell on drums, and Rohan Hayes on guitar.
