Venom Inc have entered the studio to record the follow-up to their 2017 debut release, ‘Avé’. The album will once again be released on Nuclear Blast Records with the recording being done between, England, Portugal and America with Jeff ‘Mantas’ Dunn at the helm as producer once again.

Whether the current travel restrictions due to the global health crisis affects the band’s schedule remains to be seen.

The second Venom Inc album marks the recording debut on a major label for new Venom Inc drummer, multi-instrumentalist Jeramie ‘War Machine’ Kling, also of Massacre, who joined the band in 2018.

Venom Inc singer/bassist Tony ‘The Demolition Man’ Dolan tells us: “I am a firm believer that you try to better yourself in life, not by comparison to anyone else but to yourself… making a new album, proudly under a label like Nuclear Blast, gives me that opportunity again.

“If ‘Avé’ was a great album, then this new one needs to be even greater… if the performances on ‘Avé’ were the best we could be then, it will follow that we will outdo ourselves and be better than we were… we don’t care how good or bad ANYONE else is… we are here to challenge ourselves. With the three of us in total synchronisation and firing every cylinder we each have, expect something intense, powerful, dark, spitting, visceral, foreboding, and no holds barred… HEAVY AS A FUCKING WORLD MADE FROM LEAD! Feel the Fire, Hear us Roar… for WE ARE VENOM INC!”

Guitarist Jeff ‘Mantas’ Dunn adds:

“I have always maintained that I am a man of few words, I let the music do the talking and this motherfucker is speaking volumes and has not stopped to draw breath. Furious, aggressive, relentless, vicious, culled from experience and hatred and with the personnel to deliver it, this makes no excuses for what it is . . HEAVY FUCKING METAL!”

Drummer Jeramie ’The War Machine’ Kling:

“For the new Venom Inc album I have tried a new technique. I have started by completely dismantling my drums and replacing the usual drum kit with rockets bought in Hell… and the rest of the kit you ask ?!? Well, that’s been replaced by flame throwers, gun powder and a tank gun!!! And I’m driving it all like a fucking WARMACHINE straight at you! Nothing is safe and nothing will survive!!”
