Singled Out: Agents of Mercy's Citadel

Today Agents of Mercy's Roine Stolt (who is also in Transatlantic) tells us about "Citadel" from their brand new album "The Black Forest". Here is the story:

Citadel: Young and beautiful well maybe not forever. How deep is our fear to get old, ugly and rejected? How far are we prepared to go? Is there a limit to how much we are willing to spend on plastic surgery, implants and beauty products today? In the shape of "The Blood Countess" we meet Elzbeth Bathory in the song 'Citadel' from Agents of Mercy's new album 'The Black Forest'.

Countess Elzbeth Bathory (1560-1614) of Hungarian nobility, was known as the blood countess, rumored to kill near 650 young women in the belief that their blood could make her skin young and glowing again. She's known as the female Count Dracula and a both scary and tragic part of Hungarian history. A female serial killer to boot what a creepy theme for a prog rock tune.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
