Random Song of the Day – 3/9/15

Today, Ra:

Ra, as a band, is interesting to me because the lead singer, Sahaj Ticotin, has one of the most improbably metal origins one can think of, and a voice to back it up. You’d be forgiven for thinking, with his name and the fact that the name of the band is taken from the Egyptian sun god, that he was Middle Eastern, but nope, dude’s Puerto Rican, Russian and Jewish, and his actual name is Daniel. He picked up the Sahaj name while studying meditation in India, then basically said “Fuck it,” named his band after Ra and spent his time honing his “villain from The Mummy” look to perfection, all while singing about bad relationships.

He’s pretty amazing, is my point here.
