Pilgrim is a doom metal trio from Rhode Island. PILGRIM are the latest addition to the Metal Blade roster via Alan Nemtheanga's imprint, Poison Tongue Records. Said Pure Grain Audio in an advance review of the record: "PILGRIM is a massive slab of slow-burning, sludgy doom metal. This is true doom metal, not the hybrid bile that so many bands are passing off as doom these days. The monster riffs will bludgeon you senseless and shake you to the core, but you'll keep coming back from more, willingly and repeatedly." Added Sea Of Tranquility, "slow, ponderous, crushing doom, owing much to vintage Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus, Pentagram, and the like. Ominous riffs, pounding rhythms, and haunting vocals make up the formula here, and tracks such as 'Quest,' 'Astaroth,' and 'Masters of the Sky' mix up the slow motion death marches with speedier dirges for a wild ride."
