Pilgrim stream new song and reveal Misery Wizard artwork

Three-piece doom band Pilgrim have revealed the artwork for their debut album ‘Misery Wizard’ which is set for a release on 30th January, 2012 via Metal Blade Records.
Pilgrim on their debut album Misery Wizard: “Misery Wizard” is a sonic journey through a strange and mystical legend. Hidden within are the twisted tales of the evil demons, ancient aliens and powerful sorcerers that once inhabited the dark realms of our fable. We wanted to make a record that harnessed the foreboding sounds of classic doom metal and mesh it with our tales of high-fantasy.

We’re influenced by dark, heavy music, Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus, Reverend Bizarre, Darkthrone, Burzum and the like. Unlike a lot of modern musicians, we wanted to pay tribute to these bands without BEING them, so to speak. I think originality and individuality is a staple of this record. No two songs are too similar. Each is a unique gem revealing an unsung tale of old. Each song is a portal into a different scene of the overarching mythos that is Pilgrim.”
