The June '99 release of "Metamorphosis" put Pillar on the airwaves and took their message into places that could not be reached through live performances alone. Their sophomore album, "Original Superman", brought the band's sound to a whole new level. In signing with Flicker Records, Pillar released the cd "Above" in September of 2000.

The musical style of this band as a whole evolved from each individual band member's own musical influences, such as P.O.D., Pax 217, Limp Bizkit, 311, and Rage Against the Machine. The combination of those influences is a mixture of rock, rap, and funk complete with catchy riffs and melodic interludes.
