Pillärs: Abandoned (2018) – for 9C

Over at Nine Circles I fall hard for the crust-punk hardcore doom charge of Cleveland, Ohio trio Pillärs.  Debut full-length Abandoned is a righteous voice rising above the tumultuous thrum of 2018, with lyrics that touch on everything from loss to spiritualism and faith, but never loses sight of the fact it has to first and foremost be a kickass rocking record.  As such it’s the first truly great metal album of 2018 for me.

You can check out the full review over at Nine Circles, along with lots of other words largely focused on the “metal.”
