Batushka is a Church Slavonic-speaking Polish band. Pronounced "Batjushka", the band's Cyrillic name Батюшка means "father" and is used to address an Eastern Orthodox priest. Their live line-up contains 8 members. Their songs contain lines of liturgical chanting paired with black metal instrumentation.

The members keep their identities in secret, although rumours have spread that they are well-known figures of the Polish black metal scene. In spite of claims by others that they may be blasphemous and anti-Christian, the band is ambiguous about whether they are genuinely religious or not. The band "leaves its audience to decide what it is — black or unblack."

Their 2015 debut album Litourgiya is a unique mix of the aforementioned "black" metal and eastern orthodox chants and atmosphere.
