Album: Tao Of The Dead (2011)
  • Several songs on Tao of the Dead touch on American mythologist/writer Joseph Campbell's narrative concept of "the hero's journey," which George Lucas utilized in the Star Wars films (IV, V, and VI). Frontman Conrad Keely noted to Billboard magazine that this song, for instance, "is almost symbolic of death, but also symbolic of rebirth."
