COUNTESS RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘THE WRATH OF SATAN’S WHORE’

This week, Dutch metal veterans Countess have released a new single. The band recorded a brand new version of the classic track ‘The Wrath Of Satan’s Whore’ from their 1995 album ‘Ad Maiorem Sathanae Gloriam’. With a few arrangement tweaks and improved production, the song sounds better than ever before.

Like the new version of ‘Heilig Vuur’ the band released last year, the new version of ‘The Wrath’ is available as a free download on Countess’ official Bandcamp site:
Additionally, the single is available for a normal price from all major digital outlets such as iTunes, as well as for streaming on Spotify. An official video for the new version of ‘The Wrath’ has also been released on the band’s YouTube channel:

About Countess:

Among the first Dutch black metal bands in the early nineties, Countess have always set themselves apart from other bands by a fierce loyalty to their old school influences. For two and a half decades, while fashions came and went, Countess stayed true to their vision and thus earned a worldwide cult status in the metal underground.

In spite of their sworn allegiance to metal orthodoxy, Countess have never shied from innovation. In 1994 they created the first black metal song with Dutch lyrics (Bloed In De Sneeuw) and in 1997 were among the first bands to take a rocking approach to the genre (Hell’s Rock & Roll).

Over the course of 25 years and 15 full-length albums, Countess’ sound has evolved from the raw black metal of the early releases towards a more traditional heavy metal-influenced style. The band’s most recent offering, Fires Of Destiny in 2016, being a powerful example of a seamless integration of heavy and black metal elements.

In 2014 the band returned to the stage after a long period of not having played live. Since then, Countess have performed impressive shows at numerous prestigious metal festivals in their own country, Belgium, Germany, Denmark and Finland.

The core of Countess consists of long-time members Orlok (vocals, bass) and Zagan (guitars) who both have been involved with the project since the nineties. They were recently joined by Mortüüm (drums, 2015) and Häxa (keyboards, 2016) to complete what is probably the band’s strongest formation to date.
