Ah yes, Batushka. The never-ending saga of a deal gone sour. Two former partners that peck at each other like angry cocks. And that, from one of the most promising Black Metal outfits.

Now, some time ago, the crew over here decided to cover both parties. And I’m afraid that the 2019 record Hospodi did not necessarily get great grades in the process. Aggressive it was, true. But the band around BartÅ‚omiej Krysiuk presented a tune so generic it was neither here nor there.

Now, barely one year after that specific bone of contention, we get … [...] Click to raid more!

Sometimes they just turn up out of nowhere. Unknown bands, with a compelling tune and a chip on their shoulder. Metal that just rushes onto your detection radar like a UFO on steroids.

RockmusicRaider - Blame Zeus - Seethe - Album Cover

Blame Zeus‘ newest record Seethe has total aggression splashed right over it. That overheated rage which just boils dangerously close underneath that very thin surface.

So, the RMR deck crew fired up the disk and let ‘er rip. Strapped into our chairs and ready for that atomic blast that surely would come our way.

But it looks like Blame Zeus won’t give us the volcano treatment. With violent and epic rock eruptions that would cover us all in burning ashes, like a rocky Pompei number two.

Or will they?

Well, at least not right away. … [...] Click to raid more!
