Venom Prison release new single, ‘Nemesis’

VENOM PRISON hurtle towards the impending release of their stunning third album by releasing new single, ‘Nemesis’.

“This song is about the urge to hurt the person who has caused you irreparable harm and has changed your life forever. It deals with having been left to fix the damage done to you all by yourself. This specifically relates to experiencing narcissistic abuse and the trauma resulting from it”, say the band about their latest song, taken from upcoming LP Erebos. Like the two clips previously released, the video was directed and produced by Thomas Coe-Brooker and can be viewed here.

Venom Prison elaborate: “Narcissists tend to pick empaths as their victims because they are emotional sponges who can absorb feelings from other people easily and this makes them very attractive to narcissists as these people will fulfil all of their needs in a selfless way. This results in a parasitic relationship. With ‘Nemesis’ we wanted to capture the emotions of aggression, determination and pain in a more traditional Venom Prison manner. Bringing you brutal moments, energetic pace and the head banging assault of heavy metal.”

Erebos will be released on February 4 via Century Media. Pre-orders are available now for the following formats:

Venom Prison have carved an uncompromising space for themselves over the course of two full-length albums, Animus (2016) and Samsara (2019) with 2020’s Primeval reinvigorating the band’s earlier EPs with two newly written tracks added. What began as an explosive collaboration between Russian-born vocalist Larissa Stupar and guitarist Ash Gray (with the line-up rounded out by guitarist Ben Thomas, bassist Mike Jefferies and drummer Joe Bills) has exploded into a force to be reckoned with as vitriolic and outspoken lyrically as they are musically.

The band previously released the blistering first single from Erebos, ‘Judges Of The Underworld‘ and the diverse follow-up, ‘Pain Of Oizys‘.
