Venom Inc., England's sensational black metal artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Gramercy Theater!
Venom Inc. was formed in 2014 by Tony "Demolition" Dolan Jeff "Mantas" Dunn (both of whom are former members of seminal thrash/speed metal band Venom). They recruited Anthony "Abaddon" Bray (another former Venom member) to complete the line up and started touring without any record label support. Their musical style is best described as a blend of speed metal (a subgenre of heavy metal that’s usually faster and more aggressive - but less abrasive and more melodic than thrash metal - and also shows more inclination to virtuoso soloing) and black metal (an extreme subgenre and subculture of heavy metal music, featuring fast tempos, a shrieking vocal style, heavily distorted guitars played with tremolo picking, raw/lo fi recording, and unconventional song structures). Their breakthrough came when they landed a spot at the Keep It True Festival and the crowd absolutely loved them. Jeff said in an interview, "We did it and far exceeded the expectations. I mean, the place went crazy. As we were walking off stage, Tony’s phone was going with messages. Obviously, with social media and YouTube the performance had went straight up. We were getting calls from the agent that we had at that time saying, “What the hell is going on? What have you guys just done?” They released their debut studio album (Avé) on 11th August 2017.
Don't miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to speed metal and black metal!
