4) mar is a metal band from Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. Mar is a post-metal band in the most general sense. There's lots of influences here ranging from hardcore to black metal to doom and some ambient.

Mar is a band made up of people from strong left-wing backgrounds and thus has a focus on ridding the scene of right-wing poison.
5) MAR is an indie-folk singer-songwriter by the name of Marina Elezović born in Canada, raised in Croatia Based in London and Zagreb. She currently has two albums of ambient yet undeniably touching music, one of which covers traditional American folk songs.
