Liturgy - Aesthethica

Blurring musical boundaries between hardcore, punk and extreme metal, this effort is pretty full-on...

While Liturgy’s music is often referred to as black metal, in reality they hardly seem to be the types to break out the corpse paint. In fact this Brooklyn-based four-piece, who’ve played with bands as diverse as The Ex and Oneida, appear intent on blurring the musical boundaries between hardcore, punk and extreme metal, with the tortured screaming of band leader Hunter Hunt-Hendrix combining with Greg Fox’s mountainous blast beats and on-point riffage to create a cavernous sound that’s almost religious in its intensity. There’s no let-up, no pretty acoustic interludes, just full-on musical onslaught. Nice Slayer-referencing album artwork too.
