Pillory | Evolutionary Miscarriage
For the first time since the release of 2005’s technical and over the top “No Life Guard at the Gene Pool”, Pillory returns with an even more powerful and complex album displaying numerous sonic layers and dynamics entitled “Evolutionary Miscarriage”.
“Evolutionary Miscarriage” takes the Pillory sound to a whole other level. Written, produced and tracked at House of Grind Studio during 2013, all the necessary parts of Pillory shine through. The sharp production lets each note be heard while still keeping some of the edge and harshness that was present in the last record. Heavy riffs and punishing drumming are featured throughout while the various layers of vocals pull you in many different directions. The bass thunders as the soundscapes and noise effects unify the album’s mentality. After hitting play don’t assume anything as track by track you’ll have to expect the unexpected.
The music’s dynamic highs and lows are as dark and forthcoming as the lyrical content. This album is an unsettling but honest look at the possible de-evolution of our race. Pillory has always examined life from the perspective that humans aren’t a superior race and that we show our weaknesses and failures in a multitude of ways.
“Evolution Miscarriage” encompasses in totality what the Pillory sound is by using different textures and an unbiased perspective to take you on a journey. It’s impossible to catch everything on the first listen as the complexity will become more familiar with each new visit. Pillory’s sound will suck you in and not let go as it travels through your veins and contaminates your mind.

Pillory was a vision that started back in 2005. The goal was create something different and unconventional with a technical and brutal edge to it. When I write Pillory music I try to think outside of the box. Lyrically I give my perspective on the human race, what is, and what is to come.
