Extreme metal can’t be fully understood without VENOM, the british titans who, from 1979 onwards, helped shape the genre. Even though their star was closer to many of the elements of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal of the early 80’s, VENOM soon took the speedier and darkest route. Something they already hinted with their first single, “In League With Satan”. Their brutality and rawness was made clear with the first three records, “Welcome to Hell”, the occultist “Black Metal” and the epic “At War With Satan”.
With a career that spans four decades up to this day (they released “Storm the Gates” in 2018) and the invincible Cronos fronting the group, Venom are back in Rock Fest Barcelona to take us to hell and back.
