BATUSHKA – Signs With Metal Blade Records

Polish black metal act BATUSHKA is the latest addition to Metal Blade Records’ U.S. roster.

Pronounced “Batjushka,” the band’s Cyrillic name means “father” and is used to address an Eastern Orthodox priest. Despite the themes and imagery, they are not a Christian act. The identities of the members are unknown, but they are involved with other bands. Their live lineup contains eight members.

On November 3rd, Metal Blade will reissue the debut full length “Litourgiya,” which was initially released in 2015 in limited quantity (500 copies) via Witching Hour Productions. Despite its relative cult status, the record earned critical accolades from journalists “in the know.”

The track listing is:

1. Yekteniya I – Ochishcheniye
2. Yekteniya II – Blagosloveniye
3. Yekteniya III – Premudrost
4. Yekteniya IV – Milost’
5. Yekteniya V – Svyatyy Vkhod
6. Yekteniya VI – Upovanie
7. Yekteniya VII – Istina
8. Yekteniya VIII – Spasenie
