‘Batillus’ EP reviewed on Invisible Oranges
"New York's Batillus tune down to a relatively civilized B. But unlike many other bands that do so, they're not just sitting on open notes. The guitars are all over the place, which is uncommon for their doom milieu. While the band is duly slow and low (the three songs on this EP each top 10 minutes in length), it traverses diverse terrain: trippy Sabbath-isms, mutated Helmet riffs, even black metal tremolo picking. It's an excitingly open system. There are lots of riffs - if you dislike one, one you like will likely arrive minutes later. Songs morph between riffs with surprising mobility, given the lumbering framework." - Cosmo Lee Read the entire review here. Thanks Cosmo!
