highly innovative and exciting Transcendental Black Metal
Black metal continues to reinvent itself (see: Deafheaven or Twilight with Thurston Moore) and ha ve its DNA be absorbed into acts like Chelsea Wolfe, The Haxan Cloak or Mount Eerie. From Brooklyn, Hunter Hunt-Hendrix – frontman of Liturgy – fits right into that trend too and there's no controversy he'll go out of the way of in orde to criticise black metal's sacred scriptures .
His philosophic al approach to USBM (American black metal) made it all the way into New York's MoMA, by means of his ‘Transcendental Black Metal’ manifest. In turn, t he album ‘ Aesthethica’ (’11) made it into the end-of-year charts at the New York Times. The drum machine drove fans up the wall during the latest shows but on ‘ The Ark Work’ Liturgy turns back to its original line-up. T he dose of bagpipes and portion of IDM aren't lacking either .
