Litourgiya ("Litany") is the first and only record released by Batushka, a Polish black metal band with notable doom and post-metal influences. Their lyrics are written in Old Church Slavonic, whereas their imagery and motifs are Russian. Both the name "Batushka" and the content of Litourgiya adheres to a largely Russian Orthodox concept. The album contains a unique, distinct mix of atmospheric black metal and orthodox/gregorian chants.
The members of the group keep their identities in secret, although rumors have spread that they are well-known figures of the Polish black metal scene.
