Obsidian Arc CLEAR LP
|Release Date||Jul 13, 2018|

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.
In support of this debut album, the official advance album single with exclusive b-side is set to be released February 10th , as 7" Vinyl & Digital.
Pillorian will be touring across Europe to promote their album in April 2017. Their road map includes confirmed appearances at Inferno Festival (Norway), Roadburn (Netherlands), SWR Metalfest (Portugal) and Dark Easter Metal Meeting (Germany) among others.
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.
