BATUSHKA: Polish black metal legion joins the Metal Blade Records roster

– October 18th, 2017 –

‘Litourgiya’ re-issue to see release November 3rd

Polish black metal legion BATUSHKA are the latest additions to the Metal Blade Records’ US roster.

Pronounced “Batjushka,” the band’s Cyrillic name Батюшка means “father” and is used to address an Eastern Orthodox priest. Despite their themes and imagery, they are not a Christian band. The identities of the members are unknown, but they are involved with other bands. Their live lineup contains eight members.

Metal Blade will re-issue BATUSHKA‘s Litourgiya full-length, initially released in 2015 in limited quantity via Witching Hour Productions, on November 3rd. Despite its relative cult status, the record earned critical accolades from journalists “in the know.” In a 4.5/5 rating, Sputnik Music championed the record noting, “Crushing intensity is a term bandied about with gleeful abandon nowadays, but it’s more than applicable when used to describe BATUSHKA‘s brand of Slavonic-influenced black metal. The mysterious nature of the band’s members only finishes off the creation of a truly intriguing entity, but in all honesty ‘Litourgiya‘ has done most of the hard work for them; a violent, devout, moving and sibylline affair, and one that will hopefully in time be revered as such.” No Clean Singing concurred, “The music is dark, heaving, and very heavy – with bombastic outbreaks of wildfire and thunder – and the bleak, majestic melodies are effective at getting under the skin. But what sets the music apart and makes the album especially memorable are the vocals. In addition to the incinerating shrieks that you might expect in a black metal album, you’ll hear reverberating liturgical chants in what I’m told is Church Slavonic – the language used in the Orthodox Church in such places as Poland, Russia, and Ukraine, as well as nations in the Balkan Peninsula.” Nine Circles concurred, “to say BATUSHKA is a band that is able to create layers is an understatement…’Litourgiya‘ is a combination of ancient rites and modern blasts; a work of shocking magnitude that has gone almost unnoticed by the metal community at large,” while Metal Bandcamp hailed, “an excellent piece of work, filled with incredible instrumentality that elevates black metal to new heights.”

Physical pre-orders for Litourgiya are currently available at metalblade.com/batushka


Litourgiya track-listing:
1. Yekteniya I: Ochishcheniye
2. Yekteniya II: Blagosloveniye
3. Yekteniya III: Premudrost’
4. Yekteniya IV: Milost’
5. Yekteniya V: Svyatyy Vkhod
6. Yekteniya VI: Upovanie
7. Yekteniya VII: Istina
8. Yekteniya VIII: Spasenie

Embrace the essence of musical ecstasy, fascination, passion and the urge to create… the substitute of modernity and classical perfection, a road to freedom… It’s a distinct world of sounds lavishing us with all their divine glory, sounds of liberation, sounds of spiritual spheres, sounds of harmony…

New Album “No Compromises” Announced By Dreamer’s Crime, New Single/Video Clip Available

Dreamers Crime announced that the band is set to release the brand new album “No Compromises” on Friday November 17 – an album created and crafted by the Sydney band along with Stevie Knight and Dave Petrovic at Electric Sun Studios (Tonight Alive, The Dead Love, Thy Art is Murder, Northlane). This is the debut album and it hits hard and pulls no punches.

“No Compromises” will be available for pre-order this Friday October 13 and punters will receive new single “Here We Are” – the new single and the second cut from the record. Today, the band is also releasing a filmclip for the track to celebrate the announcement, so check it out at the bottom.

Pete Repousis, frontman for the Sydney outfit, said that “Sometimes to get to where you wanna go, you have to say – f*#k what others have to say and just go for it. People sometimes over-compromise and end up the person they don’t want to be or in a place they never wanted to be in. Sometimes, for the sake of your beliefs and your dreams, you have to say no. That is where the album name ‘No Compromises’ came from. We didn’t want to compromise on this record and neither should our fans have to accept any less from us.”

Simon Kapsis, guitarist for Dreamers Crime says that “2018 is set to be a big year and releasing the album is just the beginning. The band wants to go anywhere and everywhere after the release of their album at the end of 2017, and the rest is yet to come.”

Check out “Here We Are” right here:

Spiritbox (IWrestledABearOnce) Debuts New Song “The Beauty Of Suffering” From Forthcoming Self-Titled Debut EP

Spiritbox – featuring former (?) IWrestledABearOnce vocalist Courtney LaPlante and her husband, guitarist Mike Stringer – debuts a new song called “The Beauty Of Suffering”. The single is taken from the duo’s forthcoming self-titled debut EP, which will arrive in stores on October 27th.

Check out now “The Beauty Of Suffering” below.

Says Courtney of the project:

“Personally this record is really important for me because I finally was able to sing a lot. For Michael and me, it is our first collaborative effort since getting married and we wanted every song to reflect our commitment to structure and lyrical emotion, yet still maintain a distinct vibrancy and sound. The first four songs are one long piece meant to be listened to together. They are called ‘The Mara Effect.'”

Adds Stringer:

“We just wanted to focus on the material, and show our talents as seasoned professionals, but at the same time reflect what lies ahead, within a young and fresh vibe, not something from grizzly old jaded musicians.”

Tom G. Warrior (Triptykon, ex-Celtic Frost): “I Have No Respect For Record Companies”

Spain’s TNT Radio Rock recently conducted an interview with members of Triptykon – the occult/avantgarde metal outfit formed by ex-Celtic Frost mainman Thomas Gabriel Fischer (a.k.a. Tom G. Warrior) at this year’s edition of the Leyendas Del Rock festival, which was held past summer at Polideportivo Municipal de Villena in Villena, Spain. You can watch the entire chat in the video below.

Being asked about the recent BMG/Noise reissues of Celtic Frost’s seminal catalog, a campaign Fischer ultimately withdrew his endorsement from because of disagreements on the content on his liner notes, Fischer states:

“I had some disagreements with BMG Records who own the rights to these albums these days, but it’s of minor importance. It was a disagreement of what should be in the booklet and what should not. It’s nothing new in the recording industry that the record company doesn’t have the same opinion as the recording artist. But as far as the sound is concerned, I’m very proud of what we’ve done, most of the credit has to go to Victor Santura. I’m very proud of the achievement.”

“I have no respect for record companies. I started in the 1980s worshipping – I wanted a record deal – I worshiped record companies. They represented, to me, the key to becoming a musician, which was my dream. But after thirty-five years of learning about myself, I’ve seen the realities of the music industry. We are fortunate enough to work with our own record company, so we have all the freedom in the world. Because we have our own record company, we can work at a very high level and professional. I don’t like to work with companies who work on a lower level of professionalism. So I sometimes lose my patience when somebody doesn’t work at the level we are used to. I didn’t spend thirty-five years in the industry to deliver mediocre. If I wanted to release something, whether it’s an old Celtic Frost album or a new Triptykon, I would like it to reflect myself or the artist on one hand. On the other hand, it should reflect the highest level of quality possible. If somebody fails to do that, yes, I’m unhappy. I think that’s a very natural instinct. My name is on the record. If a record company fucks up, my name is still on there.”
