With help from national radio host and metal expert Michael Holm Andersen the band received great reviews both on recorded material and live performances. The whole thing triggered a strong and long lasting relationship with the producer Jacob Hansen, and therefore the pick of producer for the full length “BOAR RIDERS” (2007) came naturally. After getting a lot of recognition during the demo years, the band decided to hit the road. They played with Mercenary, Mnemic, Barcode, Raunchy, and even played support for bigger international bands like Entombed and Enslaved. The live reviews spoke for themselves.
A reporter from Metalized even went so far as calling Pilgrimz "The metal Hives"! Another wrote; "If James Brown had a metal band, Pilgrimz surely would be it!" Then later they got nominated for “Best Live Act” at Danish Metal Awards 2006, competing with bands like; Mnemic, Barcode, Mercenary, Hatesphere. A serious preparation went down and in early 2007. The band entered the studio once more and recorded their first full length album entitled “BOAR RIDERS”, consisting of 10 tracks produced Jacob Hansen (Mnemic, Hatesphere, Illdisposed, Raunchy, Volbeat) Mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen, Antfarm (The Haunted, Sick Of It All, Heaven Shall Burn, Cataract, Robert Halford) Artwork by R. Black (Björk, Misfits, Billy Idol) Pilgrimz is currently shopping for labels to release their debut album – expect a release during the summer of 2008. Furthermore, the band has already been confirmed to play Roskilde Festival ’08 and MTV Headbangers Ball Tour.
The band has also recently signed international booking deals with 3rd Tsunami Agency, Go Down Believing and Loud Noise Agency. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
