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.
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. 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.
