Don't miss Liturgy with Big Brave at Sister on Friday, July 1st!
Liturgy is the project of composer, artist and philosopher Hunter Ravenna Hunt-Hendrix, whose yearning, energetic “transcendental black metal” exists in the space between metal, experimental music and sacred ritual. Its other members are Mario Miron (guitar), Tia Vincent-Clark (bass) and Leo Didkovsky (drums). Celebrated for their fusion of sincere emotion, compositional complexity, stylistic innovation and intense live energy, the band was founded in the context of Brooklyn DIY as a solo project by Hunt-Hendrix while she was studying philosophy and classical composition at Columbia. After expanding to a quartet they made waves with their 2011 sophomore album Aesthethica for introducing the style of black metal into the world of experimental art rock. Their ambitious 2015 album The Ark Work was controversial for its incorporation of IDM and trap production into their musical language. In fall 2019 they released their acclaimed fourth studio album H.A.Q.Q., which is tied to an ongoing philosophical YouTube lecture series. Their fifth studio album Origin of the Alimonies, an opera composed alongside a film created by Hunt-Hendrix, was released in November 2020.
