"Countess Bathory" as written by and Anthony C. Bray Jeffrey Dunn....
Welcoming the virgins 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 it wings, she rapes them of their blood
Countess Bathory
Countess Bathory
All day long the virgins sit and feast on endless meals
The Countess laughs and sips her wine - her skin doth crack and peel
But when nightime fills the air one must pay the price
The Countess takes her midnight bath with blood that once gave life
Countess Bathory
Countess Bathory
Living in her self styled Hell, the Countess dressed in black
Life's so distant - death's 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.
