In the more conservative (black) metal circles, Brooklyn’s Liturgy has created controversies by means of their every-day appearances and undergraduate mindset. However, in spite of their appearances, the music is still none the less scathing and chaotic.

Liturgy’s black metal overflows with the biting cold of an ice winter that makes your legs tremble and leaves your mouth dry.

Hunter Hunt-Hendrix’ unnatural screaming vocals are dishearteningly like a howling homeless whirlwind. The founder’s abuse of both guitar and vocal cords is matched by a band that unites the genre’s primal scream with an instrumental equilibrism you mostly encounter in jazz, mathrock and modern music compositions.

Label: Thrill Jockey / VME

Virtuoso black metal.
