Venom Prison To Release New Album “Erebos” In February

Venom Prison have announced that their album, “Erebos,” will be released on February 4. The band commented:

“Being able to work with our dear friend Eliran [Kantor] on another piece of art for Venom Prison has been exciting as always. Kantor knows the band perfectly well to capture our music and poetry into a visual masterpiece every single time. ‘Erebos‘ was a personal one for both Eliran Kantor and ourselves. This artwork captures the moment a young person dies inside as they are surrounded by horror. In the moment their innocence is lost and desensitization will from now on fuel the repetition of the cycle of violence in their life. This is ‘Erebos‘ the one born from chaos.”
