A random demo from 1993 that I found on ebay not too long ago. Its redeeming value for me is the fact that Dave Walker does vocals on this one, and Justin Kane plays drums. Dave Walker would later on do vocals for Harvest and Krakatoa, and Justin Kane would go on to drum for Disembodied and Martyr AD, all of those are great bands, with Disembodied being one of my all-time fave bands. Anyways, back to Pillar. Apart from them two, I know nothing about this band really, heh. Well, continuing with the name-dropping, Chad Dziewior (Threadbare, 108, Judas Factor, and a gazillion more bands) produced this demo. And that's it... So if anybody out there knows anything else about this band, leave a comment.
Anyways, this was not the best band ever of the Minneapolis, MN area. Dave Walker's voice was not yet as mature and powerful as it was for Harvest, and musically it lacks power as well as memorable parts. In some parts I'm reminded of Endpoint, some other parts remind me of Undertow, without ever reaching either one's level. I'm afraid to say, it's a fairly mediocre demo all in all. Either way, consider this a piece of Minneapolis hardcore history, nothing more, nothing less.
