The title says it all, really. That’s the news — Venom have named their new album.
Venom’s Fallen Angels will be released through Universal Music in late summer or early fall. No exact release date has been pinned down yet.
Complete album details will be released soon, but in the meantime, look at that picture of Conrad “Cronos” Lant. I respect what the man’s done for black metal but is he scary? is that the look he was going for? I’m not scared. I’m smiling. He looks like Gary Oldman from the 1992 “Dracula” movie.
Cronos recently told The Quietus that “the new tracks are tremendous. Basically, if you think of the way Antton was playing, especially on the last album Hell, he is a nu-metal drummer and comes from that kind of background. He’s hung round Venom most of his life and it was just good to introduce him to the whole Venom concept of playing like the way Abaddon used to play. Basically Abaddon came from a rock background and then basically developed a black metal, speed metal, thrash metal style. The nu-metal drumming is very different and it was a steep learning curve for him.”
