Wellcoming the virgin's fair,
to live a noble life
In the castle known to all
The Count's infernal wife

She invites the peasants
with endless lavish foods
But, when evening spreads its wings
She rapes them of their blood

Countess Bathory
Countess Bathory

All day long the virgins sit
Feast on endless meals
The Countess laughs and sips her wine
Her skin both crack and peel

But when nighttime fills the air
One must pay the price
The Countess takes her midnight bath
with blood that once gave life

Countess Bathory
Countess Bathory

(Countess)

Countess Bathory
Countess Bathory

Living in her self-styled hell
the Countess dressed in black
Life so distant, death so near
no blood to turn time back

The castle walls are closing in
She's crippled now with age
Welcomes death with open arms
The Reaper turns the page

Countess Bathory
Countess Bathory

    General CommentI like this song. Its about woman called Blood Countess, Elizabeth Bathory-Nadasdy. She bathed in blood of the virgins to stay young.B orn in Hungary in 1560. At the age of 15 she married to Count Ferencz Nadasdy and took residence in castle Csejthe. The Countess Bathory and her husband took part in black magic and demonic rituals.The Count Nadasdy often left the castle to go to war. It was at these times Elisabeth had lesbian orgies mixed with sado-masochism.

    General CommentAlthough UnraisedMetal said nearly everything about the song, I just want to add that the song is a cover from UKs Venom. Its a song from Venoms second CD "Black Metal" which is said to be the grandfather of extreme metal, especially of Black Metal. The legendary band Bathory (R.I.P. Qourthon) took its name from that song and inspired by Venom formed a whole new genre of Metal.
