Comments drummer Krolg Splinterfist:
“Playing in Scandinavia was a great honor. The first ever Heavy Days in Doomtown festival was a massive success and Pilgrim is proud to have been a part of something that will surely become a chief ceremony for all lovers of music that is slow and heavy. Hails to all of the promoters and organizers who made our shows in the area a possibility! We will return sooner than later! Pilgrim looks into the future with great eagerness. The Stoner Hands of Doom festival has a long history in the New England doom metal community and we are prepared to add our name to the long list of bands that have glorified this fest. We are privileged and honored to be headlining the bill with the legendary Revelation, who has been an inspiration to many modern doom bands, ourselves included.”
In addition to their stint on SHoD, Pilgrim will bring their dirge to the stage of Brooklyn this Friday at Saint Vitus with fellow doom metal band Witch Mountain.
