Just hearing these songs performed will result in an instant paroxysm of weeping, gnashing of teeth, and the uncontrollable voiding of your filthy bowels.

Venom Inc. Forced To Switch Venues In Kentucky

Venom Inc. was forced to relocate last night’s show in Kentucky at the last minute, due to the original venue being uncomfortable with the band’s dark image. The show instead took place at Madison Live in Covington, Ky.

“As we were there, the owner refused to host a ‘Satanic band,'” said frontman/bassist The Demolition Man Tony Dolan. “But we refuse to be closed down in the land of the free!”

Comprised of the founding members and main songwriter from the legendary Venom, Venom Inc. is carrying the name forward with the integrity and merciless aural assault that made Venom the forefathers of an entire genre. Mantas, Abaddon and The Demolition Man kicked off their second North American tour this year last week with two shows in New York City.

“What a way to kick off a tour,” Dolan said. “From start to end, every word was sung by the crowd right back at me. We are humbled, honored and ready for WAR!”
