Pillorian (ex-Agalloch)
« on: September 18, 2016, 06:57:32 PM »
New project from John Haughm.

Once more, we are pleased to announce another alliance made across the ocean to the Northwestern USA. Pillorian, the new band recently formed by Stephen Parker (Maestus/ex-Arkhum), John Haughm (ex-Agalloch), and Trevor Matthews (Uada/ex-Infernus), will release their debut album through Eisenwald in early 2017.

Exploring the context of obscurity, Pillorian takes inspiration from blackened metal, dark folk, and avantgarde music. Adding something ancient that hovers within the music and its somber aura, it helps to fortify the groupís audial scope in an unconventional way.

Pillorian plans to record this Fall/Winter, with further information to be revealed at a later point. We are really looking forward to their first dark metal offering.

I'm not familiar with the other musicians in this project, but I checked out that stephen parker guy last night and he's got a bunch of cool stuff going on, including a couple solo projects. here's one of them:

anyhow, i'm curious to see how this goes. i wasn't a fan of agalloch's later stuff at all, so unlike a lot of other peiople i don't give a fuck all about their breakup. if anything it was better that way to give a chance to more creative projects.
