As the release of II: Void Worship, the new full-length from Rhode Island volume assassins,PILGRIM, draws near, today Noisey offers up second track, “Master’s Chamber,” for mass consumption. Click HERE to check out the song!
Literally quaking under the weight of its own planet-crumbling heaviness, II: Void Worship findsPILGRIM traversing new trails in their bottom-heavy doom manifestations, replacing the meditated, hypnosis-inducing dirges of their debut with more calculated and gritty powerhouse riff torrents. Recorded at Moonlight Mile Recording by audio wizard Mike Moebius and centered on tales of swords and sorcery, death, doom and widespread obliteration, tracks ebb and flow into frenzied climaxes and fade into sweet sonic depressions, molding perfectly crafted rock songs into twisted spires of cryptically ominous doom metal epics.
Additionally, doom hounds can still witness the amplifier devotion of “Void Worship,” currently streaming at Invisible Oranges at THIS LOCATION as well as third hymn, “The Paladin,”streaming at: http://www.metalblade.com/
Wielding eight new epic tracks laden with tales of swords and sorcery, death, doom and destruction, II: Void Worship was recorded at Moonlight Mile Recording by audio architect Mike Moebius and supplies an extraordinary quality of tone and heaviness. With II: Void Worship, PILGRIM takes a new approach to their songwriting, replacing meditated, repetitive hypnosis-inducing dirges with more calculated and demented power-house riffs. They build, shape, and climb into frenzied climaxes and fade into sweet sonic releases, molding perfectly crafted rock songs into twisting spires of evil doom metal masterpieces. It is obvious that PILGRIM has matured, both musically and as individuals, in their past two years of global conquest.
