Batalj is an Swedish band based in Berlin, Germany that was originally formed in Göteborg, Sweden in 2009.

With distorted analog synthesizers accompanied by frantic drum assaults, effect-drenched guitar arrangements and shrieking vocals the three-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 all the way through to 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.
