August 14, 2021 / Saturday

A Polish music project started in 2015, mainly playing black metal. The lyrics of majority of their songs focus on Orthodox church. In November 2015 the group had released a single titled “Yekteníya VII” promoting their upcoming album, “Litourgiya,” that premiered shortly after, in December 2015, becoming well-received by critics and fans. After the album’s release Batushka began their music tour in Ukraine, with plans to also tour in Belarus and Russia. Their concerts in the latter countries were unfortunately cancelled due to protests. In 2016 the group had travelled alongside bands such as Behemoth and Bölzer to perform in the music tour titled “Rzeczpospolita Niewierna” (The Republic Unfaithful).
