"And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted ̶ nevermore!" -Edgar Allan Poe, "The Raven"
There are times when it seems you can't find the way to that elusive place called "me". When Felix got lost in this jungle of uncertainties; a sound opened its way like a razor blade through the fog that was blinding his mind. It was no special day or a fancy circumstance. He was listening to their favorite songs like every other day. Only difference, this time he was also listening to himself. Music was always part of his life but he never dare to create. Until that day.
At the beginning, Felix contacted Marco and Paulo. Long time friends and excellent musicians. Both now former members of RAVN6, they agreed to start the project by the end of 2011.
Chimi was next to enter the band. He met Felix at a restaurant and they talk briefly. Chimi agreed very quickly. They talked the same language: music.
Afterwards, RAVN6 needed a guitarist and Marco introduced Diego to the band. He assisted a rehearsal and after the first song they all knew he was going to be part of the band.
After Paulo left the band, RAVN6 needed a new bassist. That's when Yukio was contacted and agreed to be part of the team.
The name of the band was chosen by Felix after an inmense list of ideas and proposals:
"RAVN", taken from "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. One of Felix's favorites poems and a perfect symbol for the mysterious personification they wanted to give to the band.
"6", taken after the meaning of this number: balance, perfection, harmony. Many of the things they wanted to achieve with their music.
Influenced by japanese and western rock, tunes can be hard and powerful as they can be soft and gentle. Lyrics as well can be joyful and funny as in "So Hard to Say", angry like "Lies" or with a deeper meaning as "Sin".
This is RAVN6. A new way of rock.
