BATILLUS + KAT KATZ “CAST” A SPELL ON ME
I somehow missed the news that Batillus have a split 7″ with Mutilation Rites coming out next month; I thought their album Furnace, which is one my favorites of the year so far (read my review here), was all we was gettin’ from the doom crew in 2011.
But I was wrong! And gloriously so, if “Cast,” the new Batillus track streaming over at Stereogum, is any indication. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Kat Katz (ex-Salome, still Agoraphobic Nosebleed) lends some guest vocals to the song, but even if she wasn’t on it, it would still be a great example of Batillus firing on all cylinders.
Headbob here, then come back and let us know what you think. There’s also a Mutilation Rites song, “Golitath,” streaming in the same location. The split comes out July 12 on Shinebox.
