Aside from the ouch that hurts visual aesthetic everyone else has noted, part of your problem is that the ninja star has a lot of white space around it purely by nature. You've essentially created a big square forcefield around your thin logo. That's what's bothering you. If all that air is what's tripping you up, then you need to change something else. 1) ...
General reaction to things that I can see: The mark is forceful and strong. I also get a very gothic 'death metal' type of vibe from it. Depending on the type of music we're talking about, that might be good, might be bad. The type doesn't seem to fit the mark at all, nor does it seem to contrast enough. In its current state, it feels that it's fighting ...
As much as I understand the confidentiality issue, it will be difficult to critique the positioning and type without seeing the whole thing. The E: With what I see right now, I don't get the e. It seems really top heavy and the curve at the bottom is weird (I'm guessing it's where you might have modified it?) Technically, I would be careful with the tail ...
I very recently made a music logo, but for a different purpose (business, website and app). I think I can add some things I picked up during the whole process. I went through maybe 20 iterations, and the last iteration included rebuilding it and incorporating the Golden Ratio into it as much as I could, it actually pulled off the effect I was imagining much ...
The benefit of having your full name in a logo is that, well, your name is the logo. Nike has the benefit of spending hundreds of millions of dollars to train the public to know that a "swoosh" = Nike, but you don't have that luxury. Not yet, anyways! While using initials or symbols in logos can sometimes lead to more creative solutions or more distinctive ...
this question is like "how should my logo look like?" my advice would be to hire a designer/design studio to do it for you or just start start sketching all of your ideas out. there is little reason to choose a text only logo before sketching out all of the above. Also look at what other bands/music makers have in their style and maybe try to fit in.
Similar to Ryan's answer but more a choice from your own branding guidelines. You can use Ryan's suggestion, or you can use the one that's even better from your guidelines. The one on the bottom left: I think it's beautifully branded by the way. Something like this - you can pull the template straight out of the PDF you linked to:
Since you're not a Subgroup I would do: Name, position, and contact information at the top. Maybe with a blue dividing line. Then logo on the bottom right as stipulated and leave the entire space to the left of it empty. There's no reason to over think it.

As demonstrated by other users, the use of italics represents movement. As implied by Umberto Eco in the SIGN PRODUCTION MODEL (http://www.signosemio.com/eco/modes-of-sign-production.asp) ,vectors demonstrate movement, any lines crossing through or skewing type will help. :)
You can do something with an image of a running figure, such as this one of Hermes. (Courtesy of Google image search)
If you have figured out the "fibre optics" and "connectivity" part then fast should technically be easier with - a speedometer(with light green for fast n dark-green for fastest) - provided you know the units of your services. Rest is, up to your imagination, how you intend to integrate this with your first two components.
FedEx uses the arrow in their design: As other people point out italics often represent speed as well. Here's an image I found googleing for things that might help. This combines an arrow moving right (The direction that it is being read) with speed lines on the left (again, the direction it is being read.) In addition, the word "express" is in ...
There are several ways you can represent "fast" in a logo. One way is to "italicize" the logo (text and/or graphics) which conveys movement. The more you angle the content, the more speed is implied. However, too much angling could distort your work. Adding lines behind the movement might help. See GiantCowFilms example for this. You might also consider ...
Something like this should get you started. The key is to imply motion by making the text appear to be trying to go somewhere. and because we read from right to left to right, make go from left to right. Note: the graphic is awful looking, but it is there to demonstrate a concept.
You also want to have a good understanding of all the mediums where the logo is going to be used. For instance, on the web or 4-color printing, where the skies the limit for color, a 3D logo isn't an issue. However, if the client wants the logo inside the shirt (where the size goes), or screen printed on the front of a shirt, a 3D logo would be expensive to ...
My comment as an answer: Yes, it's quite fine. The only thing I'd make sure though, is that the logo ends up being vector in the end, rather than a raster image of a 3D rendering. Which would often mean that if you originally make it in 3D application, you'd potentially need to recreate it or at least finalize it in something like Illustrator. ...
