Venom Inc. To Release New Album In September

Extreme Metal pioneers Venom Inc. are proud to announce their sophomore album "There’s Only Black," which will be released on September 23rd 2022 via Nuclear Blast Records. Almost 40 years after their inception, the revitalized 1989-1992 Venom line-up of guitarist Jeff "Mantas" Dunn and vocalist/bassist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan and the new addition of drummer Jeramie "Warmachine" Kling have returned with one hell of a follow-up to their acclaimed debut, "Avé," and show no signs of slowing down. You can check out a lyric video for the album's first single, "How Many Can Die" below.

Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan comments:
"Following Wacken in 2019, our live season closed giving us time where I could have my hip replacement surgery and the band could use the recovery time to work on a new album...Little did anyone know we’d be hit by a pandemic that would pause the whole world.

"We began our work at a pace, then being locked down with no prospect of live shows, we decided there was no need to rush it but instead utilise the time to create without the pressure of live work looming.

"So we began recording our songs and after producing twice the amount required, we began editing, touching up, improving and polishing until we finally had what we felt was THE correct album to finally present to you: a pure ball of furious Venom Inc. power that left us feeling proud and excited at the same time. THIS album will soon be yours!!! And as the world runs through its evolution of colours remember: when the sun goes out...THERE’S ONLY BLACK! AVE!"

Venom Inc. Enters The Studio

Veteran heavy metal band Venom Inc. has entered the studio to record their new album. The follow up to their 2017 debut release "Avé" will once more be released on Nuclear Blast Records. The recording is being done between, England, Portugal and America and it will have Jeff “Mantas” Dunn at the helm as producer once again..

The new album marks the second recording under the name Venom Inc., while guitarist Mantas and frontman Demolition Man have a long history as recording artists together in Venom, M:Pire Of Evil and Mantas solo projects. It also marks the recording debut on a major label for multi-instrumentalist, Venom Inc. drummer Jeramie "War Machine" Kling (also of Massacre) who joined the band in 2018.

Venom Inc. singer/bassist Tony "The Demolition Man" Dolan states:
"I am a firm believer that you try to better yourself in life, not by comparison to anyone else but to yourself..

"Making a new album, proudly under a label like Nuclear Blast, gives me that opportunity again..
If ‘Avé’ was a great album, then this new one needs to be even greater… if the performances on ‘AVÉ’ were the best we could be then, it will follow that we will outdo ourselves and be better than we were… We don’t care how good or bad ANYONE else is… we are here to challenge ourselves. With the 3 of us in total synchronisation and firing every cylinder we each have, expect something, intense, powerful, dark, spitting, visceral, foreboding, and no holds barred… HEAVY AS A FUCKING WORLD MADE FROM LEAD! Feel the Fire, Hear us Roar… for WE ARE VENOM INC!"

Guitarist Jeff "Mantas" Dunn fills in:
"I have always maintained that I am a man of few words, I let the music do the talking and this motherfucker is speaking volumes and has not stopped to draw breath. Furious, aggressive, relentless, vicious, culled from experience and hatred and with the personnel to deliver it, this makes no excuses for what it is... HEAVY FUCKING METAL!"

Drummer Jeramie "The WarMachine" Kling:
"For the new Venom Inc. album I have tried a new technique. I have started by completely dismantling my drums and replacing the usual drum kit with rockets bought in hell.... and the rest of the kit you ask ?!? Well, that’s been replaced by flame throwers, gun powder and a tank gun!!! And I’m driving it all like a fucking WARMACHINE straight at you! Nothing is safe and nothing will survive!!"

Venom Inc. reunites the former ‘Prime Evil’ era of Venom bandmates Demolition Man and Mantas and is complemented by The Absence and Massacre drummer Jeramie "War Machine" Kling, who joined the fold early 2018. Since the release of "Avé" the band has intensively toured through Europe, Asia, America, Australia, New Zealand and South-America, both on big festivals and club venues.

Bloodstock 2018: Day Two

Following a highly entertaining opening day which featured standout performances from Judas Priest, Suicidal Tendencies and Doro, Bloodstock Open Air had much to offer for the middle of the weekend, from death metal legends to up and comers to elaborate stage shows.

Having missed out on main stage openers, Nailed To Obscurity, my Saturday began at the Ronnie James Dio stage with one of the most talked about young bands going today, Texan thrashers, Power Trip. Thrash metal, being comprised in part by hardcore punk, can often be a gamble when translated to a large, outdoor stage during the day, with some bands not always able to make it work. It's safe to say however, that Power Trip don't have this problem.

Promoting their latest album, "Nightmare Logic," which was released last year, the group tore apart the main stage and attacked the waking audience with a tenacity that couldn't have been more confrontational unless they continuously shouted, "WAKE UP DICKHEADS, IT'S TIME FOR POWER TRIP!" It may have been morning but the energy that the band transferred to the crowd already resulted in mosh pits and crowd surfing, as vocalist Riley Gale spurred on the madness with his performance alone. A great way to start the day thanks to a band who will only get bigger and badder with time. More...

Venom Inc. Guitarist Suffers Heart Attack

Venom founder and current guitarist of Venom Inc. Jeff "Mantas" Dunn has posted a message online in which he revealed that while in Portugal last month, he suffered a near fatal heart attack. His message reads as follows :
Jeff Dunn - Mantas

"April 30th 2018

" A day like any other, sun is shining and myself and Anita leave the house to drive to our next village.
Anita needs a new inhaler so we call into the pharmacy to collect one . . that is when everything changes.

"I start to experience what I can only describe as indigestion, but then the pain gets worse.
I decide to go back to the car and wait but by this time the pain is unbearable. The staff of the pharmacy help me out of the car and take me back inside. An ambulance is called. On its arrival I am taken into the ambulance to be monitored and assessed. The pain is not subsiding in any way and so the the paramedics call for a doctor.
When the doctor arrives with a nurse I am immediately hooked up to an ECG and given the news that it appears that 2 valves in my heart are blocked.

"What happened next ranks easily as the most terrifying experience of my life.
I can remember calling Anita's name and then hearing my own voice saying 'fucking fight!' . . 'dont you dare give up!' . . 'FIGHT IT!' . . . and then, nothing. More...

Venom Inc. Brings Black Metal To Bristol

As is the case with oh so many metal bands these days, there now exists two incarnations of Venom. There's Venom, led by frontman Chronos and now there's Venom Inc., featuring the other two famous members of the influential trio, Mantas and Abaddon (guitar and drums respectively,) as well as vocalist/bassist Tony "Demolition Man" Dolan, who replaced Chronos in Venom for a period of time in the eighties and nineties. The latter group released their superb debut album, "Ave," last year through Nuclear Blast Records and last week began a headlining run of Europe in support of the record, as part of a stellar lineup which also included death metal legends Suffocation and Brazilian thrash metal favourites, Nervosa.

Opening the bill was a band named Survive. Quite honestly, I don't even know if they played. A few young lads took to the stage and performed the same riff a few times at sporadic moments, then that seemed to be it. Rumour was that the group were using a stand in drummer and so I sincerely hope that things have improved for them. Unfortunately, an important call meant that I wasn't able to see Canadian support act Aeternam, however the rest of the night more than made up for what I'd missed out on. More...
