2009, a retrospective pt. 2


Liturgy - Renihilation

This is the light at the end of the tunnel. Inhuman, alien, unfathomable. Black metal beyond hatred, beyond the silly trappings of cartoonish Satanism or NS ideals, black metal with purpose and clarity. Riffs that owe as much to Glenn Branca as Burzum, drumming out of space and colour, there is something unsettling in this music. It's draped in the familiar tremolo wash of black metal, but a mad robotic heart beats at the core of it, terrifyingly efficient. This is the sound of black metal to come.

Liturgy - Pagan Dawn
