-Liturgy is the project of a multi-hyphenate musician / artist / philosopher Hunter Hunt-Hendrix whose work has “more than a touch of [Werner] Herzog’s maddening genius/genius madman dynamic” according to Pitchfork. Liturgy is his “transcendental black metal” band which the New York Times praised as “hungry for other musical languages, devouring them and putting them to work.”

The band was subject to much internet hype and controversy in their first iteration starting in the late '00s. They faded out of the public eye around 2015 — but did so on a high note with that year's release, The Ark Work, being named both SPIN & Rolling Stone's #1 avant-garde album of the year. The A.V. Club called it “more progressive and polarizing than ever...a singular musical achievement.”

In 2019 the band and Hunt-Hendrix have fully reemerged, scheduling a Los Angeles premiere for his opera project Origin of the Alimonies—releasing the band's first new music in over four years—and plotting a west coast tour. That new track "God of Love" marks a deeply satisfying evolution of the Liturgy sound — heavy & heavily orchestrated, the epic 8-minute track opens with a string orchestra and finishes with the flourish of a harp with ample strum & drang in-between.

-One man noise rock aneurism from Oakland. Loud, heavy, noisy, weird, all performed live. "It's just that the Reptoid three several profile - which is supposed to demo, but do not be fooled by anyone at - an impermeable big heavy storm that all noise-rock fans have to be to start with massive amounts sent the guy bandcamp page now to rapidly capture a minimum of three hours' albums. Yeah, like that of a man Reptoid. And yeah, it's the number three quite brilliant noise-rock phlebotomy."

-For almost a decade, Callow has been perfecting their palette of foreboding, spectral tunes that seem to emanate from somewhere in the darkest heart of the woods... Their work is like a subterranean dimension that exists beneath familiar mainstreamed neo-folk: atmospheric lamentations of woe cut with wistfulness. — The Bay Bridged
