Brand new 2021 Countess album! "Banners of blood" is Countess' sixteenth full-length and features twelve tracks of uncompromising metal music, blending first wave black metal and traditional heavy metal in a way only Countess can. Expect a continuation of the last two albums: epic heavy/black metal with bombastic melodies and the wellknown commanding hellish vocals by Orlok. The albums features two songs in Dutch and, for the first time, a song in Russian: "Ledovoye poboishche" ("Battle on the ice") tells the story of Alexander Nevsky's great victory over the crusader knights in 1242 CE. The new album also marks the first appearance on a Countess full-length of guitarist Valgard and keyboardist Haxa. Fully recorded and produced by the band themselves, deserves your total support! Comes in 6-panel digipack.
