The Shepard (Coming 2022): “The Shepard” EP tells an epic story of a prophetic leader who becomes manifested by an ancient spirit known in Native American folklore as a Wendigo. The story is comprised of four main parts:
II: “The Void” – the main character journeys further into the metaphysical realm than they ever have before; seeking knowledge, power, and answers to the mysteries of life.
III: “Skinwalker” – while in the metaphysical plane, the spirit of the main character is able to roam free but the body is vulnerable to possession by unwanted spirits. The main character’s body is discovered by a wendigo; a malevolent spiritual parasite. The Wendigo’s primary motivation is to cross dimensions into the physical plane by controlling the body of the main character. The two spirits are locked in an epic battle for their lives.
IV: “Cycles” – The wendigo overpowers the spirit of the main character, thereby gaining control of their body in the physical plane. The event creates a ripple in time referred to as an abyss; essentially an infinite loop where the spirit relives the moments of body’s death.
V: “Hiding in the Sun” – the spirit of the main character is still banished in the abyss. They are attempting to uncover the mysteries of space and time, and somehow transcend into another reality.
