PILLORIAN is the band formed by Stephen Parker (MAESTIS/ex-ARKHUM), John Haughm (ex-AGALLOCH), and Trevor Matthews (UADA/ex-INFERNUS). Their debut album was released in March 2017.
PILLORIAN was formed in early Summer of 2016 with the goal to create a unique, sinister, and twisted style of dark/black metal.
PILLORIAN adj.- of, or relating to, scorn and condemnation.
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.
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. The Album was released March 10, 2017
