The opening track is amazing, but unfortunately the rest doesn't live up to it.

I agree. It would always be difficult to produce a follow-up as good as the debut since the latter's surprising elements wouldn't be surprising anymore, but the main problem is that the songwriting is clearly inferior unfortunately.

Well based on the recent statement from the former drummer, it seems like there is no "good one" in that sense. If you haven't read it, just read it. Lotta ins, lotta outs... this is a very complicated case, man. lol

The statement doesn't change that much, really

Tracks 1 & 5 are amazing.
Rest is just Litourgiya dragging on and on. Considering it wasn't an album with a load of replay value, it doesn't help much.
I can probably spin it every couple of months as the music is enjoyable and unique enough, but not more.

I think you would have to quantify that statement. If Drab wrote most of the music, but Bart brought it to life through the performances, costumes and the rest, there is some intellectual property right issue that I think might underestimate. At least on paper. Legal paper, man.

At the end of the day, there's a lot of he said-she said.

Whatever was the case, Bart can't just take the band and kick Krys from it like he did. They can go to court and see what they outcome is... if they want to split royalties of Litourgiya, see who gets the Batushka name, see if nobody gets the Batushka name and they have to make new names for their project, etc. But however good or bad can both be, the dick act is on Bart.

Well... I saw Batushka (Faketushka) in Fortarock today. It was their first concert after the drama.

I am speechless. I abandoned a concert of a band I really like for the first time in my 30 years of life (second but Moonspell played 3 albums in a row, and I had already seen them like 10 times so I just wanted to rest).

They were not allowed to play any show under the moniker Batushka, well... What they did was not playing anything from Litourgia. Everything is new, and everything is awful, some songs have a kind of almost danceable beat. That is not Batushka, the atmosphere is not the same, the only thing remaining is the time they take to start the show with all the shenanigans.

RIP Faketushka

Wow! I always wondered how those concerts would turn out. Did they play under another monicker or did they still go by Batushka at the festival/concert you were at?

They go by Batushka, the stage shenanigans are the same, the outfits are a little bit different and there was no choir in stage, not that I have seen, but the music now barely has any chants.

Thanks for sharing, too bad. What was the general reaction from people? I'm surprised empty glass bottles didn't fly towards them.

For sure in the spirit of the first album, anyone can understand that Krzysztof was the one that wrote the music. The first four tracks are pretty good and especially the first one. Of course it is not as good as the groundbreaking Litourgiya, but it is a good follow up. I hope Bart will abandon the name, so that Krzysztof shall continue undisturbed with his work...
