II: Void Worship

Rated 2.86/5 (57.14%) (7 Votes)

I didn't think much of Pilgrim's debut, but this one is much better. This band is very much a product of the recent retro-doom resurgence, and has only been around for like 4 years. The keystone here is Black Sabbath, though singer The Wizard (another hint to influences there) is thankfully not really trying to sound like classic Ozzy as so many of these guys do. Vocals are often a weak point of Doom bands these days, but the singing here is solid if not remarkable. The riffs are nice and heavy, with a lively sound that is neither too retro-tube-amp nor too modern. I'd have to say the songs don't largely distinguish themselves, and this remains an album of good songs, rather than any great ones.
