Venom to release new album in January
Official press release: Venom, the hugely influential British heavy metal trio, widely revered for driving and shaping many aspects of the music industry, including black and thrash metal as well as for their instinctive blending of metallic power and punk spirit, have confirmed the release of their new studio album, From the Very Depths. It will be released January 27 via Spinefarm Records. The band is led by vocalist/bassist and original Venom titan, Cronos, who decided against making fans the world over wait too long for this powerful new 14-track release, which is the follow-up to 2011's Fallen Angels, also issued via Spinefarm. So, Venom will be unleashing their fourteenth studio album, via CD and download, on January 27, with a double vinyl format to follow shortly after. Cronos says, "This album is perfect, all three members are totally over-the-top confident with the new songs and the production. We had a great atmosphere in the studio while we were recording. Dante created pure thunder from his drums, while Rage tears the flesh off your face with his riffs, making everything fall into place so well. It's a strong release and really shows the band maturing into an unstoppable force of pure Black Metal. We can't wait to play the new songs live for the Legions… Hell Yeah!" Just as the aftermath of Christmas can be laced with reminders of gluttony and false cheer, so Venom will unleash a full-throttle, full-length LP to drag you even further into HELL! This is the heaviest Black Fuckin' Metal and is not for wimps.
