Track Name: Rise from the Bleeding Coffin
Lyrics by Vanessa Nocera

Rise! Rise!

The vampire women of Hell
Rise together
Flying out of their grave for two
Hungry for blood and revenge
Their love for each other
Fuels desire
For hunting the guilty down
These vampiric femmes will be avenged

The walls of the dank caverns
Veiled in cobwebs and grume
The two vamps holding hands
Emerge from their rotted tomb

Rise! Rise!

Gnashing fangs, they sniff the blood
Of the man at fault
Who shot down their coffin
Committing them to their lonely vault
Chomping and ripping out his throat
A river of thick, black blood
Their naked bodies showered and writhing
In a scarlet flood

The walls of the dank caverns
Veiled in cobwebs and grume
The two vamps holding hands
Claim home in the rotted tomb

Fear us or be one of us…
Track Name: A Feast of Virgin Souls
Lyrics by Vanessa Nocera

The sky was cadaver grey / Black clouds consumed the day
As the full moon rose above / These two vamps pledge their love
Naked under long, black cloaks / Prowling the village to invoke
Virgin girls with curiosity / To be with women who possess ferocity

Long boned fingers tease & stroke the virgin’s neck with ease
A story that’s not untold, A feast of virgin souls

Young girls falling for the seduction /Caught in a web of pure destruction
Their lurid eyes compel /And send these souls straight down to Hell
Little does the pair know /They are about to be thrown
Into their own Hellish rage /This town is ruled by a bitch of old age

Long boned fingers tease & stroke the virgin’s neck with ease
A story that’s not untold, A feast of virgin souls

Virgin blood so pure, it satiates their lust
Any blood will do, but the purist is a must
Their games are about to come to an ugly end
The wrath of the female butcher is about to descend

Drinking blood, a sanguine dream /Down their throat, an endless stream
A story that’s not untold /A feast of virgin souls

While out one night, the girls prowl in the dark
They followed a maiden home, who possessed the Devil’s mark
She retreated into a castle on the steep hill
There inside, so many victims, their bloodlust could be fulfilled

Drinking blood, a sanguine dream /Down their throat, an endless stream
A story that’s not untold /A feast of virgin souls
Track Name: Alzbeta: The Devil's Bitch
Lyrics by Vanessa Nocera

Her skin is porcelain clear
Where the blood once appeared
Give her the jagged knife
Accept this virgin sacrifice
Her supply is waning
Because the two vamps are draining
A midnight ritual of pain
An unholy castle is her domain

A woman whose hunger is so perverse
Only the blood of virgins will quench her dreadful thirst
Alzbeta – The Devil’s bitch
Is a demoness, a countess, an evil witch!

This Demoness will meet her match
As she learns of the two vamps
Coming to her village thieving
From the web the Countess was weaving
She’s laid 666 victims to rest
Now her aim is on these uninvited guests
A midnight ritual of pain,
An unholy castle is her domain

Prodded into spikes with hot irons
Alzbeta stands under a cage full of young girls
Blood showers her in a vanity bloodbath
No girl is safe from her demonic wrath
Force-fed cooked flesh of other servants
Tied up so tight, blood sprays from their cuts
But her powers are too strong for them
Let us see what happens to our vampiric femmes

A woman whose hunger is so perverse
Only the blood of virgins will quench her dreadful thirst
Alzbeta – The Devil’s bitch
Is a demoness, a countess, an evil witch!

As they enter Blood Castle…
Isabel and Mircalla feel a thousand eyes staring
They fear nothing though they really should
Because it’s the possessed countess who stands waiting…
Track Name: Cross-Scalded Flesh
Lyrics by Vanessa Nocera

Entering the castle, nothing but cries of pain
Tortured souls inhabit her unholy domain
Isabel and Mircalla are lured in by her dark powers
Just as the bells toll in the witching hour

Suddenly the force pulls the vamps up the stairs
For the first time ever, they are frightened and scared
A howling so demonic it must be the Devil
Face to face with the Countess; she seemed to revel
Finally she has who is stealing her girls
Detouring her plans, destroying her world
The demon inside her starts to take control
She lunges forward and tries to steal their souls

Isabel and Mircalla hold high a crucifix
Alzbeta screams as it burns into her skin
The demon within her refuses to leave its guest
She stands in agony with cross-scalded flesh

Running through the castle to escape the wrath
Disturbing the demoness’ ritual bloodbath
Never have they faced an evil so profane
Never were they the ones not being slain
Faster they run, but she’s quick behind
A way out is what they’re trying to find
But further inside the castle they run
Nothing now for them can be undone

Isabel and Mircalla hold high a crucifix
Alzbeta screams as it burns into her skin
The demon within her refuses to leave its guest
She stands in agony with cross-scalded flesh

They come across a basement covered in bodies
A more horrific sight than what they usually see
Some are still alive but out of their minds
Over in the corner, a baby cries
And three blood brides rip the baby to shreds
Sucked the blood from the bones, ate the eyes from the head
It’s evident now that the Devil is here, Her name is Alzbeta; she’s the one that you fear…
Track Name: Exorcising the Possessed
Lyrics by Vanessa Nocera

Black eyes stare into the darkness
She is numb to the burning crucifix
“Who are these vamps taking over my domain?
I’ll torture them in endless suffering and pain!”

Screaming like a banshee, Alzbeta stalks
Like a panther she prowls and preys
“Where are these vamps taking over my domain?
There they are! So we meet again…!”

To her dismay, they recite an exorcism
Further driven into their schism
Evil will out evil, exorcising the possessed
As they hold the cross to her breast

But she is not phased…
Track Name: Dragged Through the Rotted Catacombs
Lyrics by Vanessa Nocera

As she writhes,
The two vamps cast a spell
Sending Alzbeta’s soul
Straight down to Hell
Who is more beaut-evil?
They will show this demoness
As they drag her body
By her now mangled breasts

Through the rotted catacombs
They exorcise the blood countess
The demonic forces are letting go
On the hill, they make her undress
They ensue a torturing so perverse
Not unlike the pain she inflicted
But Alzbeta finds it pleasurable
Because to the pain, she is addicted

Dragged through the rotted catacombs
A blood castle she used to call home
But she now has met her torturous fate
By two vamps with the lust of blood to satiate
Death by these crimson queens

They rip off her breasts, they tear out her eyes
They chomp on her flesh, until they feel her demise
But not just yet, they have something else in mind
They’re going to burn her while she’s barely alive
In the cobweb veiled cemetery
Spread down below
They find a cross and carry it up the hill
To hang the mangled body of their demonic foe

They’re drinking away her life
They’re baptized in her blood
Track Name: Hanging from the Inverted Cross
Lyrics by Vanessa Nocera

Satan calls down desolate halls
But the blood countess has been bled
Through the rusted, iron gates
Isabel and Mircalla had fled

Liquid shadows cast by the blood from her past
A burning emblem of sanctity
Gaping wounds drip on dark runes
She knows her death will be legendary

They behead the bitch, put her head on a stake
Hang her body high and watch it go up in flames
The inverted cross lights up the night
The vampire women of Hell won this vampiric fight

Her castle stands tall like a cathedral
Her elixir of youth did her no good
Maniacal laughter still haunts the chambers
And the blood just pools where she once stood

A dark rendezvous
In a moldering tomb
Blood Moon howls
From Hell’s bowels

They behead the bitch, put her head on a stake
Hang her body high and watch it go up in flames
The inverted cross lights up the night
The vampire women of Hell won this vampiric fight

Proudly they stand, with her head in their hands
Over the village they exclaim, it was her life they have claimed
The plague of blood is over with all the drained veins
Fire devours the night as she goes up in flames
Track Name: 1140 Rue Royale
Lyrics by Doc Holocausto

Deep in the sultry dark heart of the Vieux Carré,
There is an infamous house of horrid obscenity,
Its legacy of cruelty written in innocents’ blood.
They say the ghosts of the defiled haunt its halls.
But far worse is the pale mistress with ebon hair,
Stalking the shadows, a whip in her delicate hand.
She is the high society devil of 1140 Rue Royale,
Vicious and wanton for pain … Madame LaLaurie.

I, Madame LaLaurie, welcome you to my grand home.
Amongst its finery and frills dreadful secrets do roam
By flickering candle to the attic shall you and I retire.
Don’t mind those foul rumors – or the fouler odour …
Marie Delphine LaLaurie: Creole Lady. Doctor’s Wife.
But behind her manners and charm does a monster lurk.
Because of a cook’s fire were her atrocities unveiled.
Hidden in the black attic, a revolting gallery of torture.

Ghastly mutilation … Grotesque humiliation …
Black nightmares begotten of grisly experimentation!
For those crimes the appalled mob called for her to hang,
But the noose did she escape, to where no one knows …
Track Name: Curse of the Cauldron Countess
Lyrics by Vanessa Nocera

Up through the rising flames, she’s come to take you away
A vengeful witch from Hell, death has come today
Her cauldron burial bursts from the ground
Death comes ripping, you won’t make a sound
Though not innocent, she was killed in vain
The ones who sacrificed her will suffer the pain
Of a revenge meant to vanquish enemies
She has come for your soul, fall to your knees!

With her wrath of demons
She will have her revenge
The evil has never died and
It will thrive again and again
Vengeance is hers
Her curse will be fulfilled
Those who try to stand in her way
Will be violently killed

Up through the rising flames, she’s come to take you away
A vengeful witch from Hell, death has come again
Her cauldron burial bursts from the ground
Death comes ripping, you can’t make a sound
