Fans of black metal rejoice, for the forefathers of the genre, British Venom have just announced their hellish return as an aftermath to Christmas, and they promise to drag you straight to hell.

Original vocalist and bass player Conrad Thomas Lant (Aka: Cronos) from the legendary British speed black metal iconic Venom has revealed details about the three-piece band’s upcoming fourteenth studio record, which will be entitled ‘From The Very Depths’. The album will be released on January 27th through one of the foremost international record labels rising from Finland, Spinefarm Records, on both CD and download formats, which will later be followed with a double vinyl edition shortly after its initial release.

[blockquote cite=”Conrad Thomas Lant”]This album is perfect, all three members are totally over-the-top confident with the new songs and the production. We had a great atmosphere in the studio while we were recording. Dante created pure thunder from his drums, while Rage tears the flesh off your face with his riffs, making everything fall into place so well. It’s a strong release and really shows the band maturing into an unstoppable force of pure black metal. We can’t wait to play the new songs live for the Legions… Hell Yeah![/blockquote]

The 14th track ‘From The Very Depths’ will be the follow up to 2011’s ‘Fallen Angels’, and some of their long time fans will argue that three years is too long a wait for a new entry in these pioneers’ extensive catalog.

[blockquote cite=”Danny Needham”]The new songs are sounding amazing; the whole album has a great feel. I’d say the strength of this band comes from our determination to create great music, and that comes from forward thinking, new ideas and fresh challenges.[/blockquote]

Venom have influenced most of today’s extreme metal, they were one of the very first metal bands and they are credited as the cornerstone of the major metal big bang of the early 80’s, which consequently shaped heavy, thrash and black metal as we know them. Throughout their 35-year career, they have had countless line-up changes, most noticeably their original guitar player Jeffrey Dunn (Mantas), who left the band back in 2002. But as long as Conrad Thomas Lant fronts this band, they are guaranteed to remain consistent through and through. Make sure to catch them live if you get the chance, I got the pleasure to witness their performance at Maryland Deathfest XII, 2013 edition.

Furthermore, Venom have confirmed their participation on the high-seas festival, 70000Tons Of Metal on its voyage from Florida to Jamaica in January 2015. They will be performing live in two sets on board; one will mostly focus on their greatest hits throughout their extensive career, and the other will be concentrated around an exclusive live worldwide premiere of their forthcoming new album.

70000Tons Of Metal tickets for next year’s edition are already on sale. Tickets prices start at $535.00 EU plus $268.00 EU for taxes and additional fees per person ($666.00 US Dollars plus $333.00 US Dollars, roughly $1,474.000 COP plus an extra $338.000 COP) this includes all onboard entertainment, non-alcoholic and non-carbonated beverages and all meals in the dining rooms. Most onboard restaurants are open 24 hours as well as room service.

There are very few tickets remaining, so you better move with haste and purchase yours before it’s completely sold out.
