the Brooklyn-based, self-styled ‘Transcendental Black Metal’ band's yearning, energetic music exists in an uncanny space between avant rock, black metal, fine art & shamanic ritual.

‘The Ark Work’ hums & churns with Hunt-Hendrix’s inventive arrangements, drenched with glockenspiels, bagpipes, strings, ritual chanting & MIDI horns. It supplements its metal energy with motifs from unlikely, disparate genres; crossfertilizing hard-style beats, occult-oriented rap & the glitched re-sampling of IDM, with structures from Medieval sacred music, Romantic classical music & 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 calibre musicianship, raw energy & profound, cosmic sadness.
