The band Liturgy creates music that's visceral and virtuosic, offering transcendence and affirmation through volume, intensity, and complexity. They uplift while they overwhelm. This Brooklyn-based band has their roots in the Black Metal genre, but their new album "The Ark Work" shows them taking off in new directions. Liturgy brings their new music to the WNYC studio, giving their first performance featuring a new set-up which allows composer/guitarist/singer Hunter Hunt-Hendrix to conjure what he refers to as a "spectral, virtual presence" with his guitar. David Garland talks with Hunt-Hendrix, guitarist Bernard Gann, bassist Tyler Dusenbury, and drummer Greg Fox about their music and the ideas and processes behind it.
