Interview by Tarja Virmakari
Earlier this spring the original VENOM members Jeff “Mantas” Dunn (guitar) and Anthony “Abaddon” Bray (drums) rejoined forces with ex-VENOM bassist/vocalist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan in VENOM Inc., who made their live debut in April 2015 at the Keep It True festival in Lauda-Königshofen, (Germany), playing a full set of VENOM classics. Tony Dolan and Jeff Dunn have spent the last few years collaborating in M:PIRE OF EVIL, who released their latest full-length album “Crucified” in May 2013. Tonight VENOM Inc. are kicking off their European tour with VADER, DIVINE CHAOS and WITCHES, check out below the dates and venues (see the poster).
Just a couple days ago, Tarja Virmakari had a chance to interview Tony “The Demolition Man” Dolan, face to face on Skype. During this long, pleasant and relaxed chat, Tarja and Tony discussed of course about the new tour, but Tony spoke also in detail about the reunion of VENOM Inc. revealing some “appetizing” information about the upcoming album and tours… among other topics were of course M:PIRE OF EVIL (their latest festivals and upcoming album), as well as Tony’s career as an actor, his childhood years, the passion inside him and Life and Omnipotent Music in its rich colour tones. To discover all Tony revealed to Tarja, just sit down and join the chat below.
