In the afterlife, we ascend from Earth, through the clouds, and up to the great Firepit in the sky. This pit is knee high, made of stones, terrifically wide, and forever burning to keep the after-life goers warm. There we drink and eat and tell stories of our life's deeds to our fiends who we find again up there, and additionally to many who we never had the opportunity to meet in Earthly life.

And there we remain until it is discovered that some of us never had good stories in the first place! Then our friends throw us into the flames, where we burn and descend back to earth to live again., hopefully this time to make an interesting name for ourselves that we can relay to our compatriots above!


I look up to the Sky
And my eyes are swallowed by the clouds
I see the Great Fire-pit
Where we go in the afterlife

Standing around the fire-pit
We take part in a past-time of old
Sharing stories of our past life
Into the flames we are thrown if our stories aren't bold!

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
