Liturgy’s sophomore record, Aesthetica, is a collection of
genre-searing, decibel-punishing paeans, drinking the blood of Black
Metal and staining the rituals of Hardcore, Classical and its
neo-counterpart Spectralism. Such songs as “High Gold” and “Generation”
could annihilate heaven and hell, while “Helix Skull” and “Glass Earth”
summon souls from the Baroque period and beyond.
