VENENUM - Venenum MLP
Black candles, winds and bell chimes, echoes from beneath… these are a few of the images that come to mind when listening to some real Dark Death Metal and VENENUM are definitely a band that understands how real Dark Death Metal should be delivered. It sounds cliché, especially nowadays where you get to listen to tons of Dark Death Metal bands that have the image, the skills, the production etc but they miss the most important thing, the real spirit! VENENUM is a brilliant exception to the aforementioned phenomenon and one should not be surprised since the band consists of ex-members of mighty EXCORIATE (RIP), the band that released the killer “On Pestilent Winds…” album. Needless to say, the news about the demise of EXCORIATE was a big letdown mainly because EXCORIATE proved to be one of the very few contemporary bands that truly understood what makes Ancient Death Metal so damn special. Luckily, VENENUM was born and in a way filled the gap of EXCORIATE’s absence! This is by far the best material that these guys have written, this is fantastic music with skill, killer attitude and a real understanding of how Death Metal should be delivered.
