Liturgy, NY Transcendental Black Metal

They walk amongst us as mere men, young men at that, but they play their music as though comfortably commiserating with the spirit world—dancing, cascading and confident. Fuckin' Liturgy. If the mass audience could get over its Pavlovian addiction to the most-obvious melody and lyrics, and its aversion to harsh vocals, Liturgy would surely be on Sub Pop or Matador, and playing enormous tours and festivals. They really are just that good.

Here's some video I shot of them last night, at day one of the NY Eye & Ear Fest III. A new song.
