Batillus / Whitehorse Split



The Batillus / Whitehorse Split is another one of those splits that have been, well, split. Each half appearing on Batillus' and Whitehorse's Bandcamp pages respectively, one for free (name your price), the other for $3 AUD.

All three songs are sludgy industrial tinged doom, suffocated by distortion and volume. The Whitehorse track appearing as the abrasive counterpart to Batillus' more sleek persona. Relatively speaking off course, as Valley of Steel warns that on the latter of the two Batillus tracks the combination of deep bass frequencies with crashing cymbals and nearly-inhuman rasped vocals are almost enough to drive the listener to madness.

Musically the split is successful. Whitehorse are solid, Batillus gives us an inkling of what can expect on their new album Concrete Sustain. (Stream one track from that here). The split have been joined below for your convenience, check it out.
