The album contains four long tracks, with title track 'Pilgrims Of The Black Hole' as absolute highlight. This stuff is brilliant in its simplicity, highly repetitive in sound and intensely eerie in atmosphere. It reminds me of some of the most obscure items I could ever lay my hands on in the nineties, when black metal was about the most evil thing in the universe. The song drives on a constant hammering of drums and incorporate some fierce screams.
'Bleak' is exactly what the title predicts, a terrifying piece of metallic nihilism and quite a stunning piece of depressive black metal. In 'Dust' the blast beats return, making it perfect headbanging material. Again, the repetitive beatings of the drums, along with the classic blackened riffing, results in a massive black metal ritual. By the end, Midnight Callings come up with a great rework of Mysticum's 'Where The Raven Rests'.
If you're an old school black metal fan, you should check out this album for real. This is one of those obscure gems that belong in every grim and frostbitten collection. I'm not sure if this band ever tours, but if they would, they could gain a massive audience and put them in a constant state of blackened trance. I surely want to see this.
