Black Metal godfathers Venom are due to release a new album, entitled ‘Fallen Angels’ in August/September.
Cronos had this to say about the new material: “More like our earlier stuff. ‘Hell’ was getting a bit too much like session tracks. Too . . . polished. And polish isn’t a good word for Venom songs. Venom songs need to be off the cuff, loose, a little bit thrash. Once you start polishing songs up a bit much you end up going in the wrong direction. There’s a spontaneity about Venom songs that I’ve always loved. When we’re coming up with new Venom songs there’s one thing that I always try and keep in mind: ‘Is that kid in his bedroom on his knees playing air guitar and going ‘Yeah! Get in!” You know? I’m not interested in Joe Satriani sitting there and discussing whether it’s technically correct or not! That’s the last thing on my mind.”
The album will consist of 13 new tracks and will be release via Universal Music.
Well hello there!
