Liturgy, Here Lies, Nine Fingered Thug

When: Thu., Nov. 18, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Arguably more than any other American band associated with black metal, Liturgy is changing perceptions of the generally diabolical, dense and direct Scandinavian strain. Smart kids from Brooklyn who talk about philosophy and minimalism and simply wear jeans and T-shirts ("Fucking posers," some will call them, natch), Liturgy makes music that combines the tenacity and techniques of its most immediate ancestors with relentless interest in other outsider forms. There's throat singing, guitar workouts, beats that move in startling ways and strangely shaped song structures. Last year's Renhilation was one of U.S. black metal's most promising moments; the demos for their forthcoming Thrill Jockey Records debut deliver, mixing grandeur and growl in a dozen beautiful, captivating and weird ways. —Grayson Currin
