“Art often seeks to imitate nature, attempting to evoke the beauty and untamed passion that we find in the world around us. Rarely, however, do we find bands that can capture that spark and also portray a lesser-appreciated aspect: the sheer goddamn heaviness of the natural world. Doom-rock trio Shepherd hail from Denver, Colorado, a place perhaps closer to that reality than others, and have created an expansive form of doom metal that branches out to post-metal and rock to add depth and might to their windswept riffing. We’re streaming the band’s debut EP First Hand now — check out the elemental forces at work….” Ted Nubel (IO)
