Most probably the most unusual release on Avant!. Rising.

A Requiem For Father Murphy is the latest and final offering [2018] from the iconic Italian occult duo, Father Murphy. Composed in the classical Requiem format, Rising follows the "Trilogy of the Cross", a series of records that recounts the journey of the fictional character Father Murphy, and subsequently the band itself. The album was mixed and mastered by long-time collaborator Gregory Saunier (Deerhoof), who is instrumental in helping craft Father Murphy's sonic descent over the years.

An album review by Tristan Bath: With Rising, the legend of Father Murphy reaches its culmination (…) Across the Italian occult duo’s ‘Trilogy of the Cross’, Father Murphy’s sound reached down into grave new depths, more inspired than ever by music from their Catholic heritage. They’ve long been integrating a wider variety of field recordings, empty space, drones, and sonic processes alongside their core elements of pounding percussion, ecclesiastical organs, gnarled guitars, and ritualistic chanting. Certain moments see the music adhere far more closely to requia traditions, including the grander sounds of timpani or trombone, and following the metres and rhyme schemes borrowed from traditional texts. (…) With Rising: A Requiem for Father Murphy, the project reaches its zenith.
