"DIOCLETIAN, always reigning within the echelons of the predatory/apex of the extreme unrelenting war metal movement have resurged with founder/guitarist Atrociter unearthing the band with a new formation and sense of purpose. The result being the New Zealand unit’s most primal, barbarous, unhinged yet remorselessly calculated and violent album “Amongst The Flames Of A Burning God”.

Radiohead have decided to release 18 hours of stolen demo music from the 'OK Computer' era. It will cost £18 (~$23), and will be available for the next 18 days on their Bandcamp. This is in response to the music being hacked and held for ransom. The band made a statement on their Facebook page:
We got hacked last week - someone stole Thom’s minidisk archive from around the time of OK Computer, and reportedly demanded $150,000 on threat of releasing it.
So instead of complaining - much - or ignoring it, we’re releasing all 18 hours on Bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion.
Just for the next 18 days. So for £18 you can find out if we should have paid that ransom.
Never intended for public consumption (though some clips did reach the cassette in the OK Computer reissue) it’s only tangentially interesting. And very, very long. Not a phone download. Rainy out, isn’t it though?

In a Facebook post from yesterday, Polish court in Bialystok ruled that Bart is allowed to release music under the name Batushka, as well as operate his brand under it while the lawsuit continues. Hence, neither Bart nor Krys are yet official owners of Batushka, but both can release music under the name. Bartushka have announced that they will now continue touring, as they had previously planned.
Krys is yet to release a statement.
Bart and Krys have been in legal disputes since last year over complete ownership of the band's name and brand. According to Krys, Bart took advantage of him and copyrighted the name on himself behind Krys' back, thus excluding Krys completely from the band. According to Bart and a former Batushka drummer Martin, while Krys has been the founding member of the band and the one who recorded some of the instruments, he was not instrumental to its success or in its creative process.
