Simply beautiful. A mix of black metal and interesting acoustic passages. I hope they return to this sound after their acoustic release (enchanted by the blooming echo).

The Best Batushka album so far. A Black Metal Classic!!!
There are few albums that I can listen to from start to finish without skipping a track and this is on the top of the list. You almost have to listen to the album as a whole.
Do yourself a favor and buy this album
The true follow up to this album is Krzysztof Drabikowski Панихида (Panihida). Bart's Раскол / Raskol EP is also a good follow up to this album as well just not as close as Panihida sounds.
