Liturgy (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
Noise/Black Metal

Progressive Black Metal experimentalists Liturgy have built a cult following of fans from both the Metal world and Indie Rock realm thanks to its adventurous, boundary-defying approach. The Brooklyn quartet first drew attention with its 2009 powerhouse debut album, Renihilation, which was recently reissued by Thrill Jockey Records, leading to a brief reunion of the quartet lineup that recorded the album (the band is down to a duo now normally). The reunion is so far limited to only a handful of dates, so if you’re hoping to catch this Liturgy lineup later, you’ll probably be out of luck.
