Recorded at PBS Fm Studios, Melbourne, 4th February 2016.

As you can probably guess from their name, BATPISS produce a rigid and unyielding cataclysm of dirge rock; spanning doom, sludge, punk, drone and spiritual styles. They’ve released one cassette, and two full length albums as well as touring Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia in their short 4-year career. Their 2015 Album Biomass captures a band willing to explore the parameters of heaviness, emotion, story-telling, and power within their 3 sided pain-cage.

Airing details: Originally via Zed Digital, 7-8pm, Sunday 20th March 2016.
Show production and engineering: Branko Cosic.
