 Back in the dark ages of black metal (before it became fashionable) something drew me to its nuances. Often sinister and almost always nefarious, black metal is not for everyone. I say it's definitely for the cultured among us. This is not your dad's metal, thankfully. I've often been asked why do you love this genre so much. That's a hard one to answer but when I am standing in a concert hall amongst my metal family, when the lights go out, candelabras are lit and rotting animal heads are bleeding on the stage and those classic black metal riffs flood the speakers, it feels like a "religious" experience. Currently I am learning how to play the riffs on guitar and enjoying and appreciating the art behind it. On to the review. 

The Polish band Batushka made their debut in 2015 with Liturgiya, an album that's theme is that of the Liturgy of Death. It is the musical prayers and dirges that would be sung for the dead. Hospodi is their upcoming album and it is a beautiful little masterpiece. 

It starts off with a ritualized chanting with "Wozglas" that further leads into the abyss of "Dziewiaty Czas" which its indulgent dark rhythms. I truly enjoyed "Pierwyj Czas" because it not only had a galloping black metal rhythm but hints of maybe thrash and a touch of doom. It's beautiful when you can mix in blends of other things and it just works.

A side note- it never matters to me if the music is in a different language. You can always get the gist of it. Very haunting album.
