Pilgrim, The - Star Cycles,
Obviously keen to stay with the same theme, the album released last month has songs that identify with either spaceships or stars. There is a little more information this time, in that they tag their music as being hard rock, heavy metal, metal, metalcore, progressive and rock, but apart from that there is no indication about who is involved, while they do state that they are from Auckland (Auckland is New Zealand's largest city and main hub for transportation. Located in the North Island, it is also the most populous urban area in the country with a population estimated at 1.415 million in 2016. The 2016 population of 1,415,550 in Auckland accounts for 33.4% of the country's population. I may not be able to tell you anything about the band, but I can copy off the internet like a good ‘un).
Yet again this is an instrumental album of high quality progressive rock and metal blended with a healthy dose of mathcore. The songs between the two albums are interchangeable, and don’t show much distinct difference between the two, but given that they were released only eight months apart that isn’t surprising and it is obvious that they are viewed as a pair by the band, given both the album and song titles. I haven’t given up hope of contacting them as this is a band/project with real potential, and I do look forward to hearing more releases by these guys.
