The Ark Work


Liturgy is a Brooklynbased selfstyled '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 HuntHendrix 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 ever The album hums and churns with HuntHendrix's inventive arrangements drenched with glockenspiels bagpipes strings ritual chanting and MIDI horns It supplements its metal energy with motifs from unlikely disparate genres crossfertilizing hardstyle beats occultoriented rap and the glitched resampling of IDM and with structures from Medieval sacred music Romantic classical music and minimalism The result is a rich seething cyberfantasia 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 2LP Deluxe 2xLP version packaged in a Gatefold jacket with high gloss varnish on inside panels and spot varnish and debossing on front cover LPs are pressed on virgin vinyl and housed in artworked inner sleeves with free download coupon LP Deluxe White vinyl 2xLP version packaged in a Gatefold jacket with high gloss varnish on inside panels and spot varnish and debossing on front cover LPs are pressed on virgin vinyl and housed in artworked inner sleeves with free download coupon CD CD version with 4 page booklet packaged in a 4 panel miniLP style gatefold package with high gloss varnish on inside panels and spot varnish on front cover
