As we previously reported, the Polish black metal band Batushka started out incredibly strong with the release of their debut album, Litourgiya, only to be met with a very serious fall out between vocalist Bartłomiej Krysiuk, and guitarist Krzysztof Drabikowski late last year. While the battle between rights and band name continues to be fought by both sides in legal matters, it would appear we're getting some killer new music regardless of what happens!
Today, Drabikowski released his first taste of brand new music under the name Batushka, and it absolutely rules. While we personally have no dog in this fight and won't speculate on the case, it's clear that Drabikowski will continue to have a strong future in metal no matter what name he releases music under. Simply put, awesome new music is the strongest statement we've heard yet!
Pretty amazing, eh!? Keep your ears peeled for more new music, I suspect we'll be getting it very soon!
