II: Void Worship (Metal Blade)

Rhode Island duo Pilgrim likes its meat and potatoes untainted by progressive condiments. II: Void Worship doesn't pick up where debut Misery Wizard left off; it's simply chapter two in the same cringe book. Stunted growth presents no problem. Dirges "Void Worship," "In the Presence of Evil," and 10-minute monster "Master's Chamber" kneel in amplifier worship, while "The Paladin" chugs along like Godzilla after two cups of coffee. II ain't what doom could be, but it's perfect for what it is.
