The first Warsaw concert of the Batushka led by Krzysztof “Derph” Drabikowski since the release of their newest album “Panihoda”.
The success of the album Litourgiya (2015) electrified the world of extreme metal. From an anonymous project, Батюшка became one of the most popular metal bands in the world. The band’s unprecedented vision of a metal sound infused with Orthodox aesthetics and their symbols was impressive both in the studio and at concerts, which gained a reputation as musical ceremonies. Four years after their debut, Батюшка returned with their latest album. Панихида is an iconoclastic take on the Orthodox funeral service. The concert in Progresja will be the band’s first visit to Warsaw since the release of the album.
Greek Rotting Christ are basically legends and pioneers of black metal in Greece with 13 studio albums, a number of compilations, EPs and splits and almost countless concerts in Poland, which are always received with great enthusiasm. Blaze of Perdition, who will open the evening, are a black metal band from Lublin, Poland, that operated as Perdition for the first few years of its existence. It was formed in 2004 and rebranded in 2007 and has remained active ever since, releasing new albums on the American Metal Blade label.
