Shepherd is our first release featuring Bob Vogston, who joined us in 2019, on guitar. Bob’s arrival also marks a major turning point in our production process, as he’s not only an insanely skilled musician, but also a gifted producer. This has allowed us to start producing our music ourselves on a level that we feel comfortable releasing to the wider public, virtually rendering us independent in all production aspects except for drum recordings, which were done at our friend Jordi Büchel’s studio in Königswinter, right around the corner from where Bob has his place.
All the other tracks were recorded at our respective home studios and later forged into their final form by Bob’s magical production hammer.


I remember, I was feeling pretty good
In my brand new Model T
Just as any sane man would

When out of the shadow
Came that crooked beggarman
Threw his palms up on my window
Rattling his can, saying

Oh, it‘s terrible
Won‘t you hear me
Don‘t send off your children
Oh, terrible
Don‘t send off your children
To the many-toothed king

Came the morrow
I was feeling quite alright
I said "Morning, Mr chairman
Have you had a pleasant night?"

When that darned beggarman
Stepped right on up to me
Flashed another hollow-mouthed grin
Before he bellowed angrily


And on the sixth floor of Harlem
Crowned with flame
Atop ursa and taurus
Is the father of game
The lord of the brazier
The lord of two horns
Eye of the master
Fatten the whores
Now eat from the lamb stew
And swallow the crab
Beggar thy neighbor
And ascend

Fear, Missouri, makes no difference

Lawyer up now, Dr. Doom,
You’re gonna need the best defense
Oh yeah, please rise
From the waters, the woods, and the meadows

Hey, hey, hey, now, chicken delight! Only 4.99
