“ is held together by Hunt-Hendrix’s exuberance which manifests aurally in the song’s closing minutes as her penchant for classical excursions frames the track in beautiful and bombastic orchestrations.” – Invisible Oranges
“The band knows its virtues and works them hard: density, repetition, development, perversity, integration, catharsis.” – New York Times
“The deeper into [Liturgy] you delve, the more its audacity and imagination start to bloom.” – NPR
Ahead of the release of their new album 93696, out March 24th on Thrill Jockey, Liturgy has shared the new single “Angel of Sovereignty.” The piece showcases Liturgy‘s boundless ambition towards transcendence through rich compositions untethered by traditional rock constructs.
Comprised almost entirely of a children’s choir, the track is unmistakably the work of Liturgy, building tension through an evolving round whose chords grow more dense and textured.
Liturgy transcends the traditional parameters of what constitutes a rock band. Founded by Ravenna Hunt- Hendrix, Liturgy is a part of a shared discipline of composition, art, and philosophy that thrives on exploring the spaces between. As an ever-evolving practice Hunt-Hendrix has incorporated elements of black metal, art rock, opera, and trap production into the musical language of Liturgy while engaging with transcendental, theological and eschatological theory through lectures series’ and art installations. A profound sense of yearning and emotional depth weaves through the Liturgy’s dense layers and anchors the project’s increasingly complex and innovative work.
93696 is the purest synthesis of the diversity of Liturgy, a sprawling and monumental double album exploring religion, cosmic love, the feminine, and metamorphosis while manifesting the ecstatic with breathtaking grandeur.
