It’s been 30 fucking years since Venom first came on the scene, and the band — lead by real-life vampire Cronos — are still pumping out the hits.
On November 28, Spinefarm Records/Universal will release that next batch of Venom filth, called Fallen Angels.
The album follows 2008’s not-very-appreciated Hell and see the band “adopting a style highly redolent of classic early Venom with modern studio technology employed only to increase the general level of nastiness,” says a press release.
Says Cronos: “When we make an album, it usually takes a few tracks to get into the vibe, although this album’s vibe was very much present during the ideas stage… everything came together so naturally.
“We all started throwing ideas together on the South American tour, and then again during the live shows of 2010, and so we knew from the start that we had some amazing new songs to make a great album.
“With any new album, you look for a few songs to put into the live set, although that is going to be very difficult with this record, as we can nail the entire album live if we want!
“Fallen Angels is the result of a band that has spent nearly two years touring and growing as a unit, and as the band grows tighter, so the songs get better and heavier, and we instinctively know what each other is thinking, and the ideas flow easier. This album is only the very start for this lineup; there will be many more albums and live shows to come for Venom.”
Bring it, Cronos. I know you’re 1,000 years old and feast on the blood of whores. Admit it, dude. You can turn into a bat, can’t you?
