A few years ago, no one could imagine any good black metal bands coming out of New York City. Then Krallice hit the scene, giving the corpse-painted masses hope, and now, Liturgy is poised to affirm Brooklyn as a new epicenter of awesome Black Metal. The one-time solo act fronted by Hunter Hunt is now a full four-piece, allowing it to take a cue from Bathory and Viking bands and incorporating chanted, choral vocals into their epic, sweeping sound (the band calls it ‘transcendental metal’). When I saw them the other night, their drummer was on tour, and they had to make do with programmed beats on an iPod. The result was actually shockingly compelling, as if Atari Teenage Riot decided to give up the rave punk schtick to go on a spirit quest in Antarctica.
