Regardless of your take on black metal forefathers Venom, they are the undisputed originators of extreme metal as we know it. Almost 40 years after their inception, the revitalized 1989-1992 line-up of guitarist Jeff "Mantas" Dunn, vocalist/bassist Tony "Demolition Man" Dolan and drummer Anthony "Abaddon" Bray have returned with a monster of an album. After months of anticipation, VENOM INC. will release their upcoming full-length opus, entitled Avé, on August 11, 2017 via Nuclear Blast. Pre-orders for the new album are available now at: www.nuclearblast.com/venominc-ave

The first single/video from Avé, entitled "Dein Fleisch", can be streamed now on KNAC.COM right HERE.

VENOM INC. was born during an impromptu live set at 2015's Keep It True Festival in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. The on-stage reunion was a rousing success amongst VENOM fans and music industry personnel alike, and although it was originally only set up for fun, Dolan began receiving numerous show offers for VENOM INC. from booking agents around the world. What started as a live set to celebrate VENOM's legacy immediately turned into a serious reunion discussion. The rest is history.

While unexpected at the outset, the end result of this reunion is an album that true VENOM fans will gladly add to the top of their playlists. Vocalist/bassist Tony "Demolition Man" Dolan says, "We tried to shape Avé so that it comes at you dark, then it gets bright and heavy and just keeps growing into some kind of monster."

Avé track listing:

  • "Ave Satanas"
  • "Forged In Hell"
  • "Metal We Bleed"
  • "Dein Fleisch"
  • "Blood Stained"
  • "Time To Die"
  • "The Evil Dead"
  • "Preacher Man"
  • "War"
  • "I Kneel To No God"
  • "Black N Roll"
Going in to writing Avé, VENOM INC. realized their live performance was the key to creating an album that would be a metal classic. It was clear that any songs the trio came up with had to have the intensity, the honesty and the aggression that was happening for VENOM INC. in a live situation. Simply put, they needed to translate what they do on stage onto a record. Not once did they look back on the VENOM catalogue and think, "We have to write another Black Metal or another Schizo..." The focus is on VENOM INC. and everything the rejuvenated three-piece do in the here and now.

Dolan adds, "Expect 100% pure, honest, solid, hard, dark, thought-provoking metal... like it was, is and forever shall be. Classic old-school, but with the ferocity and energy that we display in our live show. We are proud of this album and our new home at Nuclear Blast, as well as our whole team - management, PR, agents, sponsors and most of all, YOU. Thank you! See you somewhere on this Blood Stained Earth!"

VENOM INC. will kick off their upcoming Blood Stained Earth headline tour, featuring support from GOATWHORE, TOXIC HOLOCAUST and THE CONVALESCENCE, on September 1. Tickets for each date of the Blood Stained Earth tour are on sale today, at 10:00AM local time.
