There has been a lot going on since the controversial split/divide of Polish black metal Batushka which resulted in two different versions of the same band, with singer Bartłomiej “Bart” Krysiuk leading one version of the band and the true founding member Kryzstof “Derph” Drabikowski the other.
Once again the gates of Brutal Assault Festival located at the Josefov Fortress of Jaroměř and within the heart of Europe, Czech Republic, has opened. The festival took date from August 6th to 10th with the line up of 130 bands. The place and time is kind of sacred to me. Usually, I would be looking forward to about two or three bands. But during the festival I discovered another ten more favourites that I enjoyed and additionally more that I started to like. This is not even mentioning some other stuff that was happening. One starts to think about cosmos games.
The Story continues.. Polish black metallers Batushka recently have suffered a line-up split with both sides claiming to be the real band which has been a very strange and confusing situation for fans.
And now the court has recently ruled that until a final decision is reached as to who owns the band, Batushka, (Bart’s version) is not allowed to release his album or have any concerts under the name “Batushka”, or the cyrillic variant of said name.
