Stream Batillus/Mutilation Rites Split 7″

Offering outsiders a look at what’s going on in one of the louder corners of Brooklyn, practice-space cohorts (and soon-to-be tourmates) Batillus and Mutilation Rites are releasing a split 7″ next month via hometown label Shinebox. (That’s Batillus’s cover art above, you’ll find Mutilation Rites’s below.) The record offers a nice mix of extreme styles: Batillus’s heavy-as-fuck industrialized doom Vs. Mutilation Rites’ satanic black metal howling. For their offering “Cast,” Batillus are joined by frontman Fade Kainer’s partner (and one of extreme metal’s best vocalists) Kat Katz (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, ex-Salome). You’ll find that implosion along with Mutilation Rites’ aptly named “Goliath” right here:
