Interview by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

We have been covering the shocking split of Polish black metal act BATUSHKA and we were fortunate enough to get an exclusive interview with founder/creator/guitarist and songwriter Krzysztof Drabikowski back in April last year after events unfolded with vocalist Krysiuk going behind Krzysztof’s back and essentially stealing his own band from him which has led to two versions of the band BATUSHKA.

Interview by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Polish black metal project Batushka was founded and created by guitarist and songwriter Krzysztof Drabikowski back in 2015. They caught the attention of metalheads and press alike with their successful debut release ‘Litourgiya’ and even went on to sign with popular label Metal Blade Records. The project also featured vocalist Bartłomiej “Bart” Krysiuk and drummer Marcin Bielemuk, to accompany Krzysztof however that is no longer the case as in December 2018 a shocking video was released from Krzysztof Drabikowski informing everyone that former vocalist Krysiuk had gone behind the creators back and essentially stolen his own band from him as Krzysztof had parted ways with the vocalist but Krysiuk turned the story around on Krzysztof instead. Currently, there are two sides claiming to be Batushka but there is only one true Batushka and we were lucky enough to speak to the real founder Krzysztof Drabikowski  to get the full details of this unbelievable and shocking deceptive story and get the truth out there…

Infected Humans – Unexpected Traumatic ExperiencesEcuadorian Brutal Death Metal


Our minds are sodden sponges, steeped in the countless horrors of the world. Each day we stare through a thousand windows onto a myriad of unbearable atrocities, drinking in the blood, absorbing the screams. A torrent of twisted messages slide into our consciousness, redefining our morality, shifting our boundaries and sculpting our limits with oily caresses, luring us to transition from sanity to sickness. All it takes to become a monster is an alignment of moments, a coalescing of circumstances to leave the accumulated filth leaking into our eyes and mouths like gore and brain matter slopping from a shattered skull. Each day, each night, we walk the margins between good and evil, redemption and damnation and our cumulative choices lead us to either reach out and help, or reach out and kill.
