Venom
CD Reviews

Review by Mike Korn
Venom is eternal.  Cronos has made his pact with Old Nick for eternal youth and he’s made the most of it.

Review by Mike Korn
Not many bands can say they started a whole sub-genre of music but Venom is one. Almost 20 years ago, they were the darkest and heaviest metal band ever.
