This event is 21 and over
From the hallowed halls of ancient tombs to the shimmering slopes of frozen mountain peaks, an archaic dirge resonates faintly and eternally— the lingering of a sound once so huge that it could be heard across oceans in distant lands. It was said that long ago, three men harvested the power of sonic amplification through arcane wizardry and dark bargainings with powerful demons, and that they used this power to create a band with powerful, heavy music unlike any that had ever been heard before.
This ancient fellowship is none other than the almighty PILGRIM, a three-piece doom metal band from Rhode Island, USA. With a mix of destruction, misery and beauty, these young disciples of doom blend a surprisingly original sword & sorcery feel with the classic chest-caving heaviness of the masters: Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus, Reverend Bizarre and Pentagram. Their thick walls of majestically darkened guitar, massive booming bass, and dangerously powerful yet calculated drumming lull listeners into an intense dream-like trance, abducting them to places they never knew were dwelling within their own minds.
The band formed in early 2010 and was built on the worship of "true doom metal". Krolg, the Slayer of Man (drums), Count Elric the Soothsayer (bass) and The Wizard (guitars and vocals) have set out on a holy pilgrimage of domination through amplification.
Tucked away high up in the US' New England coastline, you can find PILGRIM making their fabled pilgrimages to New York City to showcase their mysterious songwriting for shadowy un-lit rooms of coked-out metal-heads.
PILGRIM is a sonic documentation of the friendship of 3 young men inspired and awe-stricken by the dark sounds of traditional doom metal. Something sinister always seems to be following in their footsteps. Hear them soon, before it's too late…"

Heavy Metal / Doom Metal
With food, beer and America at the forefront, it only makes sense that guitar player/vocalist Christian Gordy and drummer Taryn Waldman would meet at Gordy's 2011 July 4th cookout in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn NY. Waldman, a former Hooter's waitress turned big time commercial film editor; and Gordy, a one-legged bartender/artist/BBQ enthusiast, were an oddball couple for NY's heavily-styled metal scene. But soon, the duo began rapidly banging out monolithic snail-paced riffs that could party as much as they could crush. BLACKOUT—referring to blackout drunk, a force that kills the light, or a mobster hit on an entire family—was the only appropriate title for the band.
