About The Meta Daisies and their guardian Daisy
In 2022 The Meta Daisies – the first meta human rock band hit our screens. Band members Healer, Aviator, Viper and Beatz are avatars that reflect who The Dead Daisies were in their youth. Led by Daisy, The Meta Daisies Guardian, the band is reigniting rock music for a new generation.
The Meta Daisies are here to ensure it lives forever, on earth and in the metaverse.
With the soaring vocals of Healer, enormous riffs from lead guitarist Viper, roaring rhythm guitar from Aviator, and the stomping drums of Beatz, The Meta Daisies are an exciting hard-rocking band that is boldly going where no rock band has ever gone before. Created from the greatest rock icons, The Meta Daisies’ unique skills and traits give them the upper hand on their mission.
Healer is the bringer of light, healing and soothing the souls of listeners with his vocal prowess. The brains of Daisyland, Viper is an axe-wielding, heavy shredding genius. Aviator is the charismatic leader of the band, who is never seen without his iconic shades, while Beatz is a loyal friend and the loudest drummer in the land.
The omni-present heiress of the underworld and one of the most powerful beings in the metaverse, her connection to The Meta Daisies is eternal.
A cross cultural, badass meta-vamp and metaverse style icon, Daisy’s a kick-ass strong woman, ethereal, mysterious, powerful and strong, half human, half supernatural.
She is soon to have her own TV series – Daisyland.
In a world first, The Meta Daisies released their first single, ‘Radiance’ on May 27th. On June 2nd, their first meta cinematic (video) launched with Daisy joining the band on a trip into a parallel universe, gave the world a glimpse into the metaverse.
In a parallel world, Daisy, the time-travelling, shapeshifting heiress to the underworld, walks through deserted city streets fixated on her cell phone. She passes a holographic event of The Meta Daisies performing, and, as their guardian, is exhilarated to see they are on a mission, as pioneers in the metaverse, to preserve the legacy of rock now and in the future. She turns and is mesmerized by a bright light in the distance…
Drawn by the light, Daisy time travels, seeking the source of this mysterious energy, and finds herself deep in a dark forest where she discovers a castle with a secret tunnel to an underground vault. Attracted to a small red music box, she opens it and unleashes an ‘orb’ radiating energy, which she then follows into the underworld.
Holding court, Daisy watches over The Meta Daisies rockin’ out. Inspired by her passion for rock music she can’t resist dancing and gets lost in a euphoric state. She reaches out and touches an angel, causing an epic explosion that propels Daisy back up to the city, where she joins the light and ascends to the next meta dimension.
The meta-cinematic for ‘Radiance’ premiered on VentureBeat and has had over 130 thousand views to date.
Rock music is indeed alive and well.
