Pilgrim are a band from Rhode island that have been featured before in this zine with a musical style i would describe as being traditional doom metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "II: Void Worship" which will be released by Metal Blade Records.
The album starts out with an intro which uses guitar riffing and leads along with some melody and after the intro the music goes into a heavy doom metal direction and a few seconds later melodic vocals are added into the recording.
When the album goes into other songs the music starts going for a more old school, traditional, melodic and epic approach to doom metal as well as bringing in a dark and evil atmosphere and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as time goes on by clean playing is added into certain sections of the recording and they also focus more on heaviness and do not bring much in the way of solos and leads.
Pilgrim continue their old school, traditional doom metal sound from their previous recording while also adding in a more evil atmospheric along with epic elements to create a very dark and interesting sounding doom metal record.
Song lyrics cover Occultism, Sword And Sorcery, Doom and Destruction themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Pilgrim and if you are a fan of traditional doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Master's Chamber" "In The Process Of Evil" and "Away From here". 8/5 out of 10.
