Biography

Brooklyn based Liturgy is Hunter Hunt Hendrix and Bernard Gann. Aesthethica, their second album and third release, shows the band exploring, in greater depth, themes initially touched on by their critically acclaimed debut album, Renihilation.

Transcendental what-now? 18 April 2012
By Seth Mcarron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Easily one of the most controversial records of 2011. Purely because Liturgy go against a lot of the controversial methods of standard Black Metal acts. Now I'm not entirely sure what Liturgy's brand of "Transcendental Black Metal" is, and I don't really care. All I know is that they are breaking all the damn rules, even the rules about not having rules. While that in itself is noteworthy, Liturgy really do a lot to make sure that they are not just some novelty act with a fiery manifesto. Their musicianship on Aesthethica is undeniable, the record is an absolutely furious juggernaut dead-set on annihilation. So who cares if they wear street clothes to gigs instead of corpse-paint? Or if they don't talk about baby poop smeared on rotting vagina fetuses or something. And who cares if their mission statement is kinda pretentious and douchey? After listening to the freak circus act that is Generation (the fourth track on this LP), you don't care what their values are. In fact you don't care about anything--you can't even blink, you just want to get in whatever the equivalent of a cold shower for your ear drums would be.

Closed-Mindedness is Not Welcome 3 Nov 2011
By L. Tonapetian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Honestly, you would have to completely just let go of your musical expectations to appreciate this album. It's a complete drift from generic black metal, and that's what I like about it. It's incredibly unique, and it's pretty easy to hate. At first I completely slandered the existence of this band, but after a few more listens, it's very emotional and driving, probably the only metal that would make me cry. The members are obvious hipster douchebags though. It's whatever, in all honesty, I'm too lazy to write the types of reviews the lifeless critics of Amazon seem to pull off. 6000 words?! No thank you. Just shut the hell up, sit down, put on some headphones, and cry like a man.

This must be in Conan the Barbarian's top 3 9 Jan 2012
By Hbar - Published on Amazon.com
Full speed ahead, no nuance, no subtlety, just a relentless drive forward. No sensitive lyrics exploring unrequited love or the plight of being a suburban kid here, unless suburban kids use primal screams to express their ennui. If we could derive electricity from the restlessness of the album, it would be an excellent source of alternative energy. The pace is frantic and unrelenting. Go, go, go. Fight in the arena, storm the beaches, whatever you do, don't stop!

If you want to get a flavor for the album, check out "Generations." That track is worth the price of admission.

The Problem Is.... 11 July 2012
By K.I.B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In the two (as of today) 5-star reviews of Liturgy's "Aesthetica" on Amazon, both reviewers mention how Liturgy is "breaking all the rules" or "going against the trends". That is true...to an extent. They don't wear corpse-paint, the album cover is white and, well, that might actually be it. (And can't we say that about a LOT of BM bands?)

You see, the PROBLEM is...they aren't going against any trends, they are part of a trend -- the trend of young American's getting into Black Metal (which, in itself isn't a problem, the conflict starts when their leader starts acting like the Scholar of Black Metal).

The BIGGER PROBLEM is...their music contributes nothing worthwhile or exceptional to the black metal scene. I could forgive the attitude of the band (pretentiousness) if they actually provided notable output, but this is lukewarm black metal. The primary influences of Burzum and Darkthrone are there, a little mid-period Satyricon. Nothing new.

THE BIGGEST PROBLEM is...while these youngsters are getting attention for this mild offering, other great new black metal bands are not -- Negative Plane, Nightbringer, Oranssi Pazuzu, and Blood Cult, to name just a few. Also, some of the forefathers who Liturgy mooch off of have expanded so far beyond their core that it makes this album sound like a regressive work. Arcturus, Ulver, Abigor -- they taught us that the rebellion of Black Metal could not be contained to what it was, and what Liturgy is.

Coming back around, the problem here isn't that these guys are posers, it is that they are just another bland, cut-rate black metal band among thousands. If the album cover sported a grainy black and white photograph and a pentagram, it would of flown under the radar and ended up in a used bin somewhere. Liturgy is thriving on what they say, not on what they do. Classic American youngsters, all talk, no walk.
