This weeks #MusicMonday track was submitted to us just this past week and has already had a couple of Metal Meyham Radio presenters singing their praises!!

 

Opening J.C's Kick Ass Rock Show this past Saturday, these guys hail from Southend-On-Sea in Essex, White Raven Down are fusing anthemic heavy riffs with memorable vocal melodies skilfully creating songs that not only satisfy the hardest of rock fans but also entice the more neutrally minded of audiences. To witness this huge sound live is invigorating. 

The Band's name comes from a fable of a White Raven and a Bison...

The story goes that during a time of heavy flooding a Bison surrounded by rising flood water has accepted his fate of drowning as he is unable to find safety of higher ground.

Some time later a tired Raven flies overhead uncertain if he will be able to stay airborne for much longer and also faces the same fate of drowning as the Bison. 

After an exchange of circumstances the Bison allows the White Raven to rest on his back until he drowns in the hope that the Raven can survive. 

The Raven rests and profusely thanks the Bison for potentially saving his life when he takes flight. Several hours later the White Raven returns to the Bison who now is only just able to breath above the water. The Raven has a tree branch in its beak signifying  higher ground is nearby and leads the Bison to safety. 

The White Raven is considered to be a korvid bird of good fortune and luck.

White Raven Down is the polar opposite... The band name is a metaphor of bad luck...... and they've had they're fair share of it.

As our track of the week, we will play this every day at 6am, midday, 6pm and midnight BST and is available to buy here
