In recent years, New York doom metal act Batillus has transformed from an unsigned instrumental entity to a full group signed to Seventh Rule Recordings with a new vocalist.

Members Geoff Summers, Fade Kainer, and Greg Peterson filled me in on what's been going on with Batillus recently and where audiences can expect to be battered to pieces by the band's massive sound.

Melding many different aspects of extreme metal together from doom to black metal, solo act Hallowed Butchery recently saw the release of a split album with Batillus, and is also currently working on a split with Falls of Rauros. Sole member Ryan Scott Fairfield took out some time to discuss the band with Metalunderground, as well as the other projects he is working with.
While discussing the themes of the song "Coffin Life," which appeared on the Batillus split, Fairfield commented, "I wanted to write this song to myself, in hopes that it would allow me to see that there is only one life, and that at any time, it could all be over. I want to follow my dreams, and that requires me to live every day of my life like it is my last day on earth. That's what this song is really about: taking control over your life, and making your dreams a reality." He also discusses how the band changed from Hallowed Butchery of the Son to just Hallowed Butchery and what's on the horizon for this rising solo act. More...
