    I am wondering if you guys know about the real Batyushka? It looks like this band has been ripped off two times now. There was an original Batushka and then another came out. Both are rip offs of the real Batyushka which is spelled with a y and suppose to be the correct spelling? I know sounds crazy but I am not making this up. I would check out the original Batyushka if you like the other fake ones. Maybe this rabbit hole goes deeper we will see.

    It's just a band that members disagreed, went thier separate ways, and then tried to use the same band name.

    This happens literally all the time.

    It's just this became something of a meme so a bunch of other bands tried to latch onto the drama and use the name in all kinds of spellings.

    The one signed to metal blade is "fake". The original drummer who composed most of the first album left the band but the vocalist owned the name, so he created his own version. Drama got juicy because both bands released albums in the same month. If you can get past the drama and tribal fan bases, it's some good music from both sides.

    I don't know what's the deal exactly but yes, there should be a "y" in the band name if you look at the Cyrillic writing of the band name.
    As Max stated above, a bunch of band drama in Batushka nr 1 and nr 2. Batyushka, who know if they even existed before all that drama. As long as you don't have a copyright or record deal or whatever, your claim to a band name is worth nothing.
    There used to be a Belgian band called Chimaera, they changed their name to The Dying because of the big American band Chimaira.

    You are right, I saw them a couple of times before the dispute and I enjoyed the show.
    I was referring to the Batyushka who claims to have existed a decade before the drama-Batuskas released their first album. If they never had a record deal or copyright protection or.., than it's hard to claim they're the first.

    Pink Floyd is a good example. Two bands same name since 1985?

    Only Gilmour, Wright (RIP) and Mason had the rights to the name - so not really...

    Roger Waters won custody of The Wall in the divorce and takes that show on the road often.
