Bg or anyone...is this the original lineup? I thought their was 1 missing?meaning Venom....
Not the greatest vocals in the world, meaning the lead singers voice, but probably one or the first black metal influences to surface.....being a big shagrath fan, i have some intrigue with venom...they probably spured some deathmetal groups as well (lyrically)

Only Cronos is left from the original lineup unfortunately. The two guys he's got with him are very good though. Mantas is in a band called Dryll with Cronos's brother, I think they're really good and Abaddon runs a studio I believe.
