RIP Pilgrim’s Jon Rossi

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, October 27, 2017 at 2:43 PM (PST)

Very sad news today. Metal Injection reports that Pilgrim‘s Jon Rossi has died at the age of 26. This is a damn shame. So much life ahead of the dude and in a well loved and influential act as well. Our thoughts and hearts are with his family and friends. Pick up our favorite Misery Wizard in tribute (gotta love that “Astaroth” Cathedral-esque guitar march). What a shame. Rest in power.

Pilgrim to release sophomore full-length “II: Void Worship”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at 3:01 PM (PST)


Wizards and warriors, rejoice, for the chosen one has returned! Since the early 2012 unveiling of their debut sonic behemoth, Misery Wizard, fans and critics alike have patiently yet anxiously awaited the second chapter from Rhode Island doom bringers, PILGRIM. Welcome II: Void Worship.

Wielding eight new epic tracks laden with tales of swords and sorcery, death, doom and destruction, II: Void Worship wasrecorded 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.

Feel the gargantuan crush of third hymn, “The Paladin,” now streaming at HERE.
