Brooklyn’s Liturgy have a new album on the way, following the 2011’s Aesthethica. Their upcoming third full length, The Ark Work, arrives on March 24th via Thrill Jockey. Self-called a ‘Transcendental Black Metal’ band, Liturgy’s new effort is “a quantum leap forward, a radical change in sound that paradoxically sounds more like Liturgy than ever.”, as the press release describes. It adds that the album “supplements its metal energy with motifs from unlikely, disparate genres; cross-fertilizing hardstyle beats, occult-oriented rap, and the glitched re-sampling of IDM and with structures from Medieval sacred music, Romantic classical music, and minimalism.”
The mighty ‘Quetzalcoatl’ is the first single taken from The Ark Work and we can’t wait to hear more. Check it out below, and straight after check out the album trailer.
