Batalj is a Swedish noise rock band based in Berlin, Germany that was originally formed in Göteborg, Sweden in 2009.Read More...
With distorted analog synthesizers accompanied by frantic drum assaults, effect-drenched guitar arrangements and shrieking vocals the four-piece concocts a barely comprehensible soundscape of deformed rythms, riffs, blasts, bleeps and more or less controlled chaos. Taking their cues from diverse musical damaged goods hailing from hardcore punk all the way through to harsh noise Batalj creates a truly furious and highly inventive sonic assault.
The past three years the band has extensively toured Europe and United Kingdom, played shows alongside bands such as Child Abuse, Melt-Banana, Staer, Retox and Divorce and released two 7" splits, a self-titled 7" EP (Et Mon Cul C'est Du Tofu? and Twintoe Records) as well as been on various compilations. A limited self-titled cassette release is now out on London-based label SixSixSixties Records.
