Brazilian melodic death metal band VENOMOUS is back and shares the new single, the version of the Rolling Stones classic “Paint it Black”. The track features Mayara Puertas, lead singer of Torture Squad, and this is a tribute to a classic that turns 56 years old in 2022.
“Paint It Black” was recorded in 1966 by the English Rolling Stones, and as the year went by, it gained versions by several artists – from rock to rap and R&B.

The band is back with a new lineup and excited about the release of “Paint it Black” and the resumption of their activities and shows in Brazil.
