Venom vs Venom Inc? Classic Album “Black Metal” 1982 – Who Would Win In A Fight?

venom black metal cover

These days there are 2 Venoms: Venom and Venom Inc: Which One Is The Real McCoy?

Venom was formed in 1979 in Newcastle, England. 1982 they released their groundbreaking “Black Metal” album. Many credit Venom as being the first back metal band. Venom’smusic was more primitive than the fancy black metal bands of today. Their sound almost punk or like Motorhead.

  • While the exact details are murky. In 2003 Chronos tried to reunite the original venom line-up but was turned now.
  • Cronos’s real name is Conrad Thomas Lant and retains the rights to the Venom name.
  • Chrono’s plays fretless bass on the early Venom albums, which made the band sound even more chaotic and sloppy. This is what I call the “bathory effect“.
  • Mantas and Abaddon continue to Venom Inc.
  • Demolition Man replaced Chronos in on bass/vocals. He tours and recorded with Venom Inc.
  • Chrono appeared on Dave Grohl’s Probot album which also includes members of Celtic Frost, Trouble, Motorhead, King Diamond, and VoiVod.
  • Most music critics hate Venom.

  1. […] Endless Pain was the debut LP by German thrash metal legends Kreator. The production on the original was very raw and unpolished. The band was obviously very young and clearly imitating other early extreme metal bands like Venom. […]
