BATALJ is a Berlin-based experimental noise/trash/mayhem outfit whose members originate from Sweden and Australia. 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 hardcore punk all the way through to harsh experimental noise BATALJ creates a truly furious and highly inventive sonic assault.
