This song was inspired by the 1963 Italian horror film "Black Sabbath" directed by Mario Bava. Specifically, the segment titled "The Wurdalak" starring Boris Karloff.


He rides a dark horse
Crosses burned in its sides
He rides hooded in the dead of night
And I call to him, I call to the night
And the wind in the trees
Calls to me "Salvation......Salvation......"
And I feel him breathe into me resurrection
He rides a dark horse
He doesn't live and he does not die
He rides shameless through this mountain side
And I call to him, I call to the night.........


from "Dark Horse/ La Vengenista" single, released November 18, 2012
