US doom metal band Pilgrim has officially joined forces with Metal Blade Records. Their debut album, Misery Wizard, was released in early 2012 through Alan Averill's Metal Blade imprint, Poison Tongue Records. The band is currently working on the new album, which will be recorded sometime this month at Emandee Studios. More details will follow soon.
Vocalist/guitarist Jon "The Wizard" Rossi comments on the signing: "The stars have aligned and our dreams have come true. It's a fucking honor to have joined the ranks of the legendary Metal Blade army. The time has come for our world domination through sonic amplification. Hail Astaroth, Hail Slagel."
A high quality live bootleg of a new track, "Void Worship", from the band's March 1st show at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, NY has been made available and can be viewed below.
