Original batushka

This is amazing album

This album really spoke to me, as I’ve never heard anyone mix metal with the chanting of the Orthodox Church. Batushka does an amazing job at mixing the two, and it sounds fantastic!

Outstanding in all regards

Batushka makes me smile and sneer as only artists like Bölzer can.
See this spectacle live if at all possible. Caught them at Psycho Las Vegas ‘18: my mind melted out of my ear canals. Just a fantastic sleeper act considering when this album came out, so glad they’re blowing up now. They literally had to cancel their shows in Moscow due to murder threats by radical sects of the Orthodox Church (threats to their fans and the band). They can’t play Belarus either from what I read.
Tight, operatic, refreshing and hard as nails. AND sung in Church Slavonic, which is excellent. Well worth the purchase and support.
Will travel to experience them again.
