“Bloodbath is about the legendary Ecsedi Báthory Erzsébet aka Elizabeth Bathory aka the most infamous female killer ever documented. Hard to discern what is fact and what is fiction but one thing can be concluded: She definitely wasn’t a kind woman, girls disappeared and the stories are grim.
Unfortunately, the method of extracting confessions for the trial at that time, was through severe torture and written accounts vary from person to person, so we can’t know the details for sure.
Nevertheless the lyrics are written from her point of view with the attitude of total indifference and that she only did what was in her right as a highborn ruler who was richer than the king himself."
There you have it metalheads!
