Original VENOM members Jeff “Mantas” Dunn (guitar) and Anthony “Abaddon” Bray(drums) have rejoined forces with ex-VENOM bassist/vocalist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolanin a brand new band called VENOM INC.
VENOM INC. will make its live debut at this weekend’s Keep It True festival in Lauda-Königshofen Germany, and will continue with shows in China, Japan and Taiwan in July, followed by a full European tour with Polish death metallers VADER in September.
VENOM INC. will play a full set of VENOM classics, with plans to record a brand new album in the coming months.
Dunn, Bray and Dolan released three albums as VENOM between 1989 and 1992 — “Prime Evil” (1989), “Temples Of Ice” (1991) and “The Waste Lands” (1992).
Dolan and Dunn have spent the last few years collaborating in a new band called M-PIRE OF EVIL, which released its full-length debut, “Hell To The Holy”, in March 2012 via Scarlet Records. A follow-up effort, “Crucified”, came out in May 2013 via Deadline Music (a subsidiary of Cleopatra Records).
