Reign Supreme Comments On Forthcoming "Sky Burial" EP
Reign Supreme frontman Jay Pepito has posted the following statement online, detailing the theme behind the band's forthcoming new EP "Sky Burial."
"Sky Burial comes from the Tibetan tradition of bringing the dead to a mountain, or other place where vultures gather. The vultures and other animals consume the corpse, and hence, it becomes a vessel to feed and care for these creatures. It’s a cool idea, wherein your empty shell of a person becomes of some utility to some other thing, and I just found the idea of that fascinating; it makes more sense to me than embalming the dead in an attempt to preserve some self-imposed idea of what they were like in life, and then tossing that homemade mannequin into a pine box, and letting it rot. It seems to me to be more pragmatic, to let yourself be the thing that sustains your ecosystem. It reminds us that we are just animals, that we are not special because of our smart cars and Facebook, and that we, in a sense, are simply carrion."
