Batillus Sign On With Seventh Rule

Official press release:

Seventh Rule Recordings proudly welcomes Brooklyn doom quartet Batillus to its stormy roster.

With songs that move from bristling blast beats to subterranean crawls, Batillus (buh-TILL-us) cohere the extremes of heavy music into a surge of massive riffing, rolling over and descending on the listener with the force and intensity of a sudden storm.

The New Yorker describes Batillus as "a sludgy four-piece that slows monstrous Black Sabbath riffs to a crawl to produce highly textured compositions of droning doom-metal," and Revolver calls their music "beyond-atmospheric blackened doom."

Seventh Rule will release "Furnace," the first full-length by Batillus, in the coming spring months, with full U.S. touring by the band to follow. "Furnace" was recorded by Sanford Parker (Yob, Unearthly Trance, Nachtmystium, Pelican) at Semaphore Studios in Chicago.

Batillus' current tour dates are as follows:

11/14 New York, NY @ Bowery Electric w/ Evoken, Man's Gin, Moth Eater
11/19 Wallingford, CT @ Red Scroll Records w/ Author and Punisher, Theologian
11/20 Somerville, MA @ The Starlab w/ Author and Punisher, Theologian
11/21 Albany, NY @ The MarketPlace Gallery w/ Author and Punisher, Theologian
11/26 Philadelphia, PA @ The Rotunda w/ Author and Punisher, Theologian
11/27 Brooklyn, NY @ Acheron w/ Author and Punisher, Theologian
12/11 Brooklyn, NY @ The Charleston w/ Naam, Cough, Sea of Bones
