Almost fourty years after the inception of extreme Metal founders Venom, 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.

'Avé' is released on Nuclear Blast on 11th August and now they have announced details of a UK tour for this Autumn.

Tony Dolan told us:

"It gives me great pleasure to announce a limited UK run of dates for Venom Inc., bringing our new album to you live. I cannot wait!

"Following the North American tour and before South America, we wanted to put some good old home dates in and we look forward to bringing some almighty HELL to you!

"Bands in support to be announced but raising a little mayhem with our fellow Brits is as good as it gets and we cannot wait to see you. It will come fast so get your places now and we will see you out there.

"ALL HAIL - AVE!"

After months of anticipation, Venom Inc. will release their upcoming full-length opus, entitled 'Avé', on August 11th 2017 via Nuclear Blast.

Here's the first single from Avé, entitled 'Dein Fleisch'.



Venom Inc. was born during an impromptu live set at 2015s 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 told us:

"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' tracklisting:
1. Ave Satanas
2. Forged In Hell
3. Metal We Bleed
4. Dein Fleisch
5. Blood Stained
6. Time To Die
7. The Evil Dead
8. Preacher Man
9. War
10. I Kneel To No God
11. Black N Roll

Going in to writing 'Avé', Venom Inc. realised 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.

Tony 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!"

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
