    Another pack of incredibly weighty riffs that slowly march and stomp like an iron bloke heading out to war. [22 Mar 2014, p.53]

    With music like this, the line between undercooked and overdone is a pretty fine one, but II: Void Worship shows that Pilgrim are a band more than capable of walking it with an album that's sure to find purchase with doom purists looking for something less fussy than the post-metal albums the genre influenced.

    Void Worship takes what was essential about Misery Wizard and compacts it while expanding Pilgrim’s overall scope--a fitting progression for a pair of genre loyalists.

    There’s not a great deal that’s groundbreaking here, and the bass is rather underutilized, but the pieces all fit together snugly, and with tunes ranging in length from the brief instrumental “Intro” to the 10:35 “Master’s Chamber”, there are plenty of opportunities to become engulfed by oceans of pulsating noise.

    While the band itself might still be metal newcomers, their music goes down like an aged mead, and Void Worship is an early contender to be one of 2014's most satisfying drams of doom.

    II ain't what doom could be, but it's perfect for what it is.

    Satisfying as it is in its old-school simplicity, its songs never really go anywhere, not so much resolving as dissipating like a foggy chuff of dope smoke.
