about

Recognize that we live day to day with a mind full of preconceptions, that we exist "within a maze" of culture, and at times it is as hard for us to escape from this maze as it is for an ant to escape the confines of his mound and fly among the stars.

lyrics

The ant that lives
Inside the mound,
Knows the Earth, the air, the ground.
...But the stars are so far beyond
What that ant can know.

The human that lives
Inside his culture,
Lives within the walls of a maze.
...But that the walls are even there at all
Is beyond what the human knows.

The human that lives
Inside his culture,
Lives deep inside a cave.
...But the pathway out is so obscured
By the culture's own ways.

The frog that sits
Under the pond,
Sees only a glimmer of sky.
...But he thinks that it is everything,
And that's the best that he can do!

Sun Shepherd formed in 2006, and has since sought to capture tectonic-plate heaviness by means of Guitar, bass, drums, and throat. Three albums have been released: "Gravestoned" (2006), the "Sun Shepherd II" demo (2010), and "Procession Of Trampling Hoof" (2011). The doom-rock jams are volcanoes and uplifting mountains--vehicles by which the musicians rise above the mundane procession of life. ... more
