BATUSHKA

Australian Tour 2019

plus special guests

As civilisation continues to eat itself, heavy music’s dark spiritual quest has never seemed more vital. Emerging from the shadows of eastern Poland back in 2015, BATUSHKA have already established themselves as one of the modern era’s most powerful and evocative bands. Harnessing the fire and fury of arcane black metal and channelling it through the reverberant grandeur of ancient rituals of worship, the band’s debut album Litourgiya stood apart from the extreme metal hordes: a monument to originality, depth and dark mysticism that swiftly cast its spell over the metal underground and beyond.

BATUSHKA will finally be bringing their sinister sermons to Australia this October and November. Their live show is one of legend now with Distorted Sound Mag recently exclaiming “We were part of their congregation in Manchester to witness their live ritual. As aroma from the incense and candles swirled in the air the band created a moving and captivating atmosphere that held the audience’s attention throughout. Maintaining this atmosphere through a Gregorian choir added splashes of melody through orchestral chanting and soft percussion instruments supporting their chaotic riffing, BATUSHKA‘s ritualistic performance was mesmerising to say the least”. – Distorted Sound Mag
