The original Batushka combined sacral elements inspired by Eastern Orthodox Liturgy with atmospheric black metal music on Litourgiya. This combination can still be found on Hospodi album. Hospodi manages to keep the elements that made the debut record great in form of sacral chants, smooth percussive elements and occasional sound samples intertwined with atmospheric black metal stylistics in form of fierce vocals, glacial riffs and hypnotizing instrumental soundscapes.
Recommended for fans of Herm, Vladyka, Gaerea.
