BAZ Friday LXXXVI – Underground Reco For Underground Maniacs

Another week is gone. Damn. It’s passing real fast or is just my impression/feeling? Hmm…

Well, it doesn’t matter to be honest. What it does matter, is just one thing. Well, two things.

That we are ok and our beloved music. So, I really hope you enjoy my recos.

Band: Countess

Cover/Music: 8/10 – 8/10
Details: They are back. The latest album was released in 2016 if I don’t count with the Live Album released in 2017. After that 7 singles released. To the ones, more distracted Countess started in 1992 and they still play the Black Metal first wave. It is good or bad? Well, for me this band is good. Check them if you don’t know them.
