Boomkat Product Review:
Haela Ravenna Hunt-Hendrix continues to disassemble black metal's rigid structures on her confounding new long-form incantation.
If you've come across Liturgy before you'll probably know that since the late 2000s the project - that's flitted between being a solo endeavor and a full band - has sought to recontextualize black metal, using the frenetic Northern European template to examine ideas about history, identity and transcendence. "93696" is a lengthy two-disc sprawl of ethereal choral vignettes and fuzzed minimal-maximal expressions that pierce the genre's impenetrable veil, spiking oppressive atmospheres with hope and wyrd magick.
Hunt-Hendrix's skill is in orchestrating music that's as ambitious and high-minded as early Genesis but as visceral as Darkthrone. And if black metal has been an easy petri dish for growing fascist ideology, her usage of it to provoke alternative concepts is vital and life-giving.
