Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan commented:

“Following Wacken in 2019, our live season closed giving us time where I could have my hip replacement surgery and we could take the recovery time to work on a new album…Little did anyone know we’d be hit by a pandemic that would pause the whole world. We began our work at a pace then being locked down with no prospect of live shows I decided there was no need to rush it along but utilize the time to create without the pressure of live work looming.

So we began recording our songs .. and after producing twice the amount required we began editing, touching, improving, and polishing until we had until we finally had what we decided was THE correct album along with the label and here we can finally present to you .. a pure ball of furious… Venom Inc power that left us feeling proud and excited at the same time…THIS album is now yours!!! And as the world runs through its evolution of its colors remember .. when the sun goes out…THERE’S ONLY BLACK!!!!! AVE“

Venom Inc. “Have 24 Brand New Songs” Written For Their New Album

During a recent interview on the “Heavy Demons” radio show, Jeff “Mantas” Dunn offered an update on the new Venom Inc. album. According to him, the band “have 24 brand new songs” written for the effort and it is “sounding great.”

Dunn said the following:

“So far, we have 24 brand new songs, and they are all at the first preliminary mix stage. But we need to get the vocals done. Tony usually comes to Portugal to do vocals in my studio, but with all the restrictions at the moment [due to the coronavirus pandemic], it’s just not possible. So we’re just gonna have to wait.”

“[The material is] sounding great. Dare I say this, it sounds better than ‘Avé’ I think it does.”

He also added the following when asked about release plans:

“It’s pointless saying to people, ‘Oh, yeah, it’ll be out in the spring,’ ‘Yeah, it’ll be out in the summer.’ We just don’t know — we really don’t know. At the moment, the U.K. looks like it’s possibly locked down until March, so nobody’s going anywhere. And Portugal have shut their borders to a lot of countries, so getting in and out of places is just so difficult at the moment. So it may come down to Tony having to find a studio somewhere in London or whatever. I really don’t know.

Like what we did with ‘Avé’, I had a lot of the lyrics written for that album already, and then when Tony came over, then any gaps that were there, we filled them in together. We tend to work on the vocals and the phrasing and all that kind of stuff together. So maybe it’ll just be down to Tony this time. I don’t know. We’ll have to see how the restriction situation goes. We’ll have to keep a close eye on it and see what happens.”

Venom Inc. Begin Recording New Album

Venom Inc. have officially started the recording process for their new album. Guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn will be handling the production duties for the record.

Tony “The Demolition Man” Dolan said the following:

“I am a firm believer that you try to better yourself in life, not by comparison to anyone else but to yourself.. Making a new album, proudly under a label like Nuclear Blast, gives me that opportunity again.. If ‘Avé’ was a great album, then this new one needs to be even greater… if the performances on ‘AVÉ’ were the best we could be then, it will follow that we will outdo ourselves and be better than we were… We don’t care how good or bad ANYONE else is… we are here to challenge ourselves. With the 3 of us in total synchronisation and firing every cylinder we each have, expect something, intense, powerful, dark, spitting, visceral, foreboding, and no holds barred… HEAVY AS A FUCKING WORLD MADE FROM LEAD! Feel the Fire, Hear us Roar… for WE ARE VENOM INC!”

Jeff “Mantas” Dunn added:

“I have always maintained that I am a man of few words, I let the music do the talking and this motherfucker is speaking volumes and has not stopped to draw breath. Furious, aggressive, relentless, vicious, culled from experience and hatred and with the personnel to deliver it, this makes no excuses for what it is . . HEAVY FUCKING METAL!”

Jeramie “The WarMachine” Kling continued:

“For the new VENOM INC album I have tried a new technique. I have started by completely dismantling my drums and replacing the usual drum kit with rockets bought in hell…. and the rest of the kit you ask ?!? Well, that’s been replaced by flame throwers, gun powder and a tank gun!!! And I’m driving it all like a fucking WARMACHINE straight at you! Nothing is safe and nothing will survive!!”

Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan (Venom Inc.) Undergoes Hip Surgery

Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan (Venom Inc.) has revealed that he recently underwent hip surgery at a hospital in London on August 15. He told Lords Of Metal following:

“The pain is not so bad. I just feel happy that it is done at last. I’ve had an accident as a 12-year-old kid, when I was hit by a car and landed flat, after the car had thrown me 20 feet straight up in the air. The last ten years, I’ve been attempting to get help, and the last three years in Venom Inc., there was always a reason why it couldn’t happen, mostly due to rescheduling at the hospital. It came to the point I could wait no longer; I could barely walk after Wacken. So I am very happy it is finally done and I can look forward.”
