Countess is a Dutch band that has been unleashing metal music upon the world since 1992.
Countess’ unique and harsh style of metal, characterized by an uncompromising loyalty to the old Heavy Metal and Black Metal traditions but by no means unoriginal, has certainly gone through changes over the years, but its essence has always remained the same.
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.
Since 1993, Countess has released fourteen full-length albums. Most recently, the band unleashed the album 'Ancient Lies And Battle Cries' on April 9th 2014.
