PILLORIAN WILL MAKE THEIR DARK ARTS KNOWN WITH ‘OBSIDIAN ARC‘.
LP: reverse board cover, inside flooded in black, with 8 page 12"booklet on uncoated paper and silver print. 180g clear vinyl inside a black inner-sleeve with poly-lining and dropcard for the digital album.
Pillorian was formed in early Summer of 2016 by Stephen Parker (Maestus, ex-Arkhum), John Haughm (ex-Agalloch), and Trevor Matthews (Uada, ex-Infernus) with the goal to create a unique, sinister, and twisted style of dark/black metal.
Fusing haunting melodies with avantgarde structures, dark folk elements and blackened walls of furious sound; the music of Pillorian is the perfect aural definition of its namesake. 'Obsidian Arc' was recorded at Witch Ape/Skyway Audio and Sprout City Studios by Tad Doyle and Stephen Parker. Mixed and mastered at Klangschmiede Studio E by Markus Stock.
