Look. Pilgrim has kicked off its career with two back-to-back damn near perfect doom records in a day and age where it's easy to just release something mediocre in a popular genre and get away with it. The video was directed by Jon Schnepp, who directed multiple episodes of Metalocalypse and The Venture Bros.
So how could Pilgrim possibly make its fan love its music that much more? Obviously with a weird, blurry, hallucinogenic-type of music video that'll make you wonder what the hell was in that drink you just had. Check out our exclusive premiere of the band's new music video above and don't forget to pick up its latest record II: Void Worship!
Here's what the band had to say about the video.
"We feel so lucky to have gotten to work Jon Schnepp. He was amazing and fun to work with. We have always been huge Metalocalypse fans so it was a dream come true to add that show's style and art to our music. It truly is an honor. We shot the video about a year and a half ago, and since then we've been waiting eagerly and impatiently to see its release. We are more than happy with the end results and, quite frankly, pretty shocked, it's really far out."
Plus, here's what Schnepp had to say!
"Making the music video "Paladin" for Pilgrim has been a blast! The band was totally down with me taking a literal D&D visual approach, and letting it get crazy! Rossi and the entire band performed incredibly in dual roles, as the Wizard and the Paladin, with great backgrounds by Sam Shearon, and special effects makeup by Cig Neutron and Rannie Rodil as the Demoness. I'm very excited for the rest of the world to experience "Paladin" by Pilgrim!"
