Countess is a Dutch band that has been unleashing metal music upon the world since 1992, releasing fourteen full-length albums along the way. Most recently, the band unleashed the album ‘Ancient Lies And Battle Cries’ on April 9th 2014.

Countess’ unique style of metal is characterized by an uncompromising loyalty to the old Heavy Metal and Black Metal traditions. The most important influences of Countess are the old Black Metal legends like Venom, Bathory and Hellhammer and traditional Heavy Metal bands like Manowar and Manilla Road.

Countess currently consists of Orlok (vocals and bass), Zagan (guitars), Wolfram (drums) and Herjann (keyboards). In 2014 the band returned to the stage after a long absence, delivering impressive performances at a selection of prestigious metal festivals in the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Finland.

    Today there's a party in my house. The ARKHAM WITCH came and brought COUNTESS Erszebeth along. The cackling going on here is insane. I think they are swapping recipes for virgin blood cocktails right now. It's really confusing for the rats though, on occasion they are on the wrong tits and that usually doesn't end well :D During all the madness and mayhem and the cackling I'm also trying to number stuff and my darling wife is already packing (pre) orders which will be shipped on Wednesday, April 2nd, one week before the official release date on Wednesday, April 9th to make sure that all those who opened their wallets in support of my label and my efforts to release the weirdest Heavy Fucking Metal imaginable get their CDs in time.

    Here's another track off "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" to keep you going until your pre-order ships. Unless you haven't ordered it yet in which case you should probably stop fucking around and go and do it. Seriously.

    It's time for some serious Spring Cleaning in the glorified office we like to call our "warehouse". It's 40 % off on pretty much everything so now would be the prefect time to go forth and complete your WITCHES BREW and BARBARIAN WRATH collections. Support the Underground and share this to the ends of the Earth and beyond the Gates of Hell !

    "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries", COUNTESS' fourteenth full-length, features ten tracks of uncompromising METAL, blending first wave Black Metal and traditional Heavy Metal in a way only COUNTESS can. The result of almost three years of writing and recording, "Ancient Lies" will surely satisfy all those who long for the days when Black Metal was still METAL. Pre-order your copy of "Ancient Lies And Battle Cries" right here:

    Rejoice ! After listening to at least a decade of whining and complaining there are finally official reprints of DAWNFALLs "Dominance Of Darkness" and COUNTESS' "Book Of The Heretic" albums available so you can replace your crappy mp3s and CDRs with something solid and official without getting scalped by eGay parasites. To aquire this one true stress test for your stereo system (I wouldn't even attempt to play that through a smartphone...), grab a beer and head over to my dear wife's Witches Brew shop @

    I'm digging Sermons of the Infidel a lot. I like that it continues the more melodic style of songs like "Hymn to the Gods of Yore." Hell, that song even gets a remake on the EP! Second time that's happened, but since that's one of my favorite Countess songs, I'm not going to bitch about it! Great music for working out or grinding down the monotheistic bastards.

    The book will be repressed, according to BG. Last one I need to complete the collection.
