Long awaited vinyl re-issues of the Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan era VENOM albums, “Prime Evil”, “Tear Your Soul Apart”, “Temples Of Ice”, and “The Wastelands” (feat. original members, Mantas and Abaddon), will be available in July via Rock Mark.
“It’s been a long road and one of persistent work, but finally the road ended and we can present these recordings again. “Prime Evil”, “Tear Your Soul Apart”, “Temples Of Ice” and “The Wastelands” with original art, full lyrics, some nice bonus extras too. First time on vinyl – “Kissing The Beast” and extra surprises. This was never about money but about this important part of the history of a band, and the recordings that went with that period finally being re-released, so those who couldn’t find them or didn’t get the chance to own them, or even hear them properly, can now do that with these remastered but not remixed pieces of history. Music is to be heard and to have fought so hard to free these recordings for you finally, is the ALL to me. Enjoy!” says Tony Dolan.
The albums have been remastered for vinyl from original masters, and except seperate album releases, Rock Mark also announced the release of a special limited edition box set, limited to 166 copies, incl.:
