Nearing the tail-end of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, the band Venom, was unlike any other around, unleashing a darker, more sinister sound. The core trio consisted of vocalist/bassist Conrad“Cronos” Lant, guitarist Jeff“Mantas” Dunn, and drummer Tony“Abaddon” Bray. Counting Motörhead, Black Sabbath and Judas Priest as major influences, Venom fashioned a style of metal that veered into dangerous territory with the use of satanic lyrics and visuals, though such references were purely for shock value.
Venom’s sophomore album, Black Metal spawned a genre with the same name that forever changed the metal soundscape. Released in 1982, the album paved the way for various strains of extreme metal and inspired future generations to delve deeper into darkness and doom.
