If loud metal is what you like - The Raven Age are for you. But what is it that influences a band to get so loud? Jai, drummer of The Raven Age, takes on our Desert Island Discs challenge.

Waking The Fallen – Avenged Sevenfold:

This is my all time favourite album. You just cannot beat songs like ‘I Won’t See You Tonight (Part 1)’, ‘Remenissions’, ‘Second Heartbeat’ and everyone’s favourite ‘Unholy Confessions’. Every song is special and has everything I like in a metal album: Amazing singing and screaming, quality guitar riffs and solos, incredible drumming (from my all time favourite drummer, The Rev) and perfect song writing.

City Of Evil – Avenged Sevenfold:

I know I’ve already picked one A7X album, but I couldn’t leave ‘City of Evil’ behind. This record blew me away, and watching The Rev play ‘Beast and the Harlot’ on YouTube was one of the reasons I started drumming. Avenged Sevenfold again show off their incredible song-writing and instrumental skills and although M Shadows stopped screaming it didn’t have a negative effect, it just meant there were more songs to sing along to. With a voice like mine, it’s probably best I do that on a desert island actually!
