Consisting of the rhythm section of Sleep, Om return with a entrancingly dynamic four-track offering titled PILGRIMAGE. Engineered by Steve Albini, this enchanting endeavor makes a beeline for the reflective side of your mind, combining softly-shaped natural rhythms with hypnotic stoner rock bass licks and Tibetan chant-esque vocalizations for a seriously metaphysical listening experience. These guys know how to lay down viscous layers of sludge, audible after a minute in on "Unitive Knowledge of the Godhead" and induce a state of willing captivity from the tender opening strains of the title track. In all, Om's path to self-enlightenment via music invites us all to join through their latest batch of mystically-tinged mantras put to song.
