Venom Confirms New Album, "Fallen Angels" Release Date

British black metal pioners Venom has announced that their new studio album, "Fallen Angels" will be released on November 28th through Spinefarm Records/Universal. To promote the album, the band will be releasing a double A-side single on October 31st which will feature the songs, "Hammerhead" and "Hail Satanas."

Speaking on the album, frontman Cronos stated: “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 line-up; there will be many more albums and live shows to come for Venom. It has taken a long time and a lot of changes to finally deliver a Venom that can attack black metal the way it should be – fast, furious, tight and terrifying. All Hell Breaks Loose… Hell Fucking Yeah!!"

The tracklisting is as follows:

1. Hammerhead
2. Nemisis
3. Pedal To The Metal
4. Lap Of The Gods
5. Damnation Of Souls
6. Beggerman
7. Hail Satanas
8. Sin
9. Punks Not Dead
10. Death Be Thy Name
11. Lest We Forget
12. Valley Of The Kings
13. Fallen Angels

Hell,Spiral,if i was Metallicas manager,i would have talked them into doing a collab with Cronos,Lemmy,couple members from Saxon and Angel Witch. Id bring Metallica back in line with thier origional fanbase. Sadly thier so obscenely wealthy,they've forgotten who and what made them! And hey,i gotta get that new Saxon album also!
