New Venom Album To Be Released In Early 2008, Classic DVD In The Works

UK black metal icons VENOM have decided to re-record some of the tracks for their new album and have changed the release date until early 2008. Drummer Antton explains: "During the Scandinavian Tour we played through some of the new tracks in the sound-checks, there's something about the energy you deliver when playing on a stage that differs greatly from recording in a studio. All fired up we tore the tracks to shreds. We tried to organize a mobile studio to get to the next shows, but it was way too late notice, so on our return to the UK Cronos (bass/vocals) hired some small venues for us to record some new backing tracks to work on. At the end of the day it's all about recording a great album, and this new album is sounding absolutely awesome. The band are also preparing some samples to stream from the website, as well as some choice recordings from the tour."

In other news, work has started on a special DVD release of Venom's classic videos. The Hammersmith show from 1984 (The 7th Date of Hell) and the Nightmare video to name a few, are set to feature along with new interviews from various members and 'never before seen' footage from the band members personal archives are also set to be included. Further information and updates are forthcoming.
