Get Your Free Halloween Treat! Free Download of Venom Cover “Countess Bathory” by ARTACH

It’s become a Halloween tradition for St. John’s, Newfoundland duo Artach to treat their fans and friends with some sweet candied black metal. This year, the band has reached way back in time to 1982 to revisit the classic song “Countess Bathory” by Venom, a band that has had an immense impact on them and upon black metal.

“Hell, they coined the phrase “Black Metal” with their album of the same name, so we felt it was a great choice to select “Countess Bathory” for Halloween as it’s about the Hungarian noblewoman Countess Elizabeth Báthory who murdered countless young women between 1590 – 1610. We added our own minor touches to the song and added a part for Lilita Arndt of Ieschure who is the Countess in our version of the song. We hope you enjoy it, Happy Halloween!” explains the band.



Artach is offering up a free download via Artach.bandcamp.com of their Venom cover for “Countess Bathory” featuring guest vocals by Lilita Arndt of Ieschure.
