Venom Fallen Angels on Limited Edition 2LP
Venom, the hugely influential UK outfit now celebrating a full 30 years since the release of their Welcome To Hell debut, are back with a brand new studio album on Spinefarm Records. Titled Fallen Angels and featuring 13 fresh recordings produced by main-man/bassist Cronos, this is the follow-up to 2008's Hell release, and sees the trio (completed by guitarist Rage and drummer Dante) adopting a style highly redolent of classic early Venom with modern studio technology employed only to increase the general level of nastiness. The first limited edition pressing of Fallen Angels will also include the two bonus tracks "Annunaki Legacy" and "Blackened Blues."
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.
“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. 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 lose."
