Liturgy is a Brooklyn-based, self-styled “Transcendental Black Metal” band
whose yearning, energetic music exists in an uncanny space between avant
rock, black metal, fine art and shamanic ritual. Led by songwriter and
conceptual architect Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, who is joined by guitarist
Bernard Gann, bassist Tyler Dusenbury and drummer Greg Fox, the band
exists as a 21st century total work of art (gesamtkunstwerk): activating
divine potencies by means of music and culture even as it underscores
the contradictions inherent in such a project during the internet era.
Their third full length, The Ark Work, is a quantum leap forward, a
radical change in sound that paradoxically sounds more like Liturgy than

The album hums and churns with Hunt-Hendrix’s inventive arrangements -
drenched with glockenspiels, bagpipes, strings, ritual chanting, and
MIDI horns. It supplements its metal energy with motifs from unlikely,
disparate genres; cross-fertilizing hardstyle beats, occult-oriented
rap, and the glitched re-sampling of IDM and with structures from
Medieval sacred music, Romantic classical music, and minimalism. The
result is a rich, seething cyber-fantasia that is improbably listenable,
conveying the disarming, authentic emotion that is Liturgy’s hallmark -
a blend of startling invention, high caliber musicianship, raw energy,
and profound, cosmic sadness.

Liturgy began as the solo project of Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, who remains their
sole songwriter. After a few self-released cassettes, the project began
in earnest with the release of the Immortal Life EP (2008) and the
crystallization of the aims to adapt black metal’s typical genre markers
– including blast beat drumming and rapid tremolo picking – along new,
life affirming lines of artistic development, and to treat a rock band
as a real-time visionary performance/art/life project. The band expanded
to its current quartet for the recording of Renihilation (2009). Their
fervid and cohesive live presence, in particular Fox’s unorthodox and
dynamic drumming, quickly earned them a following both in the global
metal underground and the Brooklyn art punk scene. Controversy erupted,
along with interest from the wider world, around the companion piece to
Renihilation: the text Transcendental Black Metal: A Vision of
Apocalyptic Humanism, which Hunt-Hendrix delivered at the now-legendary
Hideous Gnosis Black Metal Theory symposium that year.

With the release of 2011’s Aesthethica, the friction between Liturgy’s
multiple worlds sparked and caught fire. Liturgy crossed over to perform
to huge crowds at major festivals and at art institutions, including
MoMA, where Hunt-Hendrix delivered his manifesto next to a Joseph Beuys
sculpture. Aesthethica was listed as Spin’s top metal album of the year
and featured on two different New York Times lists for top 10 albums of
2011 while the band graced the cover of Metal Hammer’s Subterranea
magazine. For the next two years the live band functioned as a duo while
Hunt-Hendrix began the long process of composing what would become The
Ark Work. In 2014, Fox and Dusenbury returned to record the album along
with Hunt-Hendrix and Gann, adding their dynamic energy to the mix. The
result is the first true sonic realization of Transcendental Black
Metal: a musically cohesive alchemical fusion, an artistically reflexive
work of theandery, and a mind-bending album that is as original as it
is beautiful.
