Extreme Metal pioneers VENOM INC. are proud to announce their sophomore album “There’s Only Black”, which will be released on September 23rd via Nuclear Blast Records.
Almost 40 years after their inception, the revitalized 1989 – 1992 VENOM line-up of guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn and vocalist / bassist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan, and the new addition of drummer Jeramie ‘Warmachine’ Kling have returned with one hell of a follow-up to their acclaimed debut, “Avé”, and show no signs of slowing down.
Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan comments: “Following ‘Wacken’ in 2019, our live season closed giving us time where I could have my hip replacement surgery and we could take the recovery time to work on a new album… Little did anyone know we’d be hit by a pandemic that would pause the whole world. We began our work at a pace then being locked down with no prospect of live shows I decided there was no need to rush it along but utilize the time to create without the pressure of live work looming.
“So we began recording our songs .. and after producing twice the amount required we began editing, touching, improving, and polishing until we had until we finally had what we decided was THE correct album along with the label and here we can finally present to you… a pure ball of furious… VENOM INC power that left us feeling proud and excited at the same time…THIS album is now yours!!! And as the world runs through its evolution of its colors remember… when the sun goes out… THERE’S ONLY BLACK!!!!! AVE!”
