Batushka is a black metal band from Poland. The band has an unique sound as they are blending together traditional black metal with eastern orthodox chants and melodies. Their name means "father" and is used to address an Eastern Orthodox priest. When the band play live they are usually a stronghold of eight people on stage. Batushka was supposed to play already at Inferno — but had to delay their performed to the next Inferno Metal Festival. This will be an amazing gig by one of the most demanded bands for Inferno in recent years.
The band had a long break between and , but has since then served the world brutal filthy black metal that hits listeners like a fist in the face. The band has rarely been in Norway and this will be the first time the band performs at Inferno Metal Festival.
Together with the hired guns, The Ruins Of Beverast will strike upon us with their doomish black metal, with songs that vary a lot and with an atmosphere of death and doom. The German black metallers have released four albums, with a variety of tracks, both in expression and running time.
The record addresses the potential for a global catastrophe, and is based on the philosophical novel Ishmael by Daniel Quinn.
