Venomous Concept (Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Etc.) Finish New Album

Venomous Concept (Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, etc.) have officially finished their new album. The effort is expected to be released later this year.

Shane Embury commented:

“Finally finished the next Official Venomous Concept album with Simon Efemey at #headlinemusicstudios – I am seriously over the moon with what we all achieved !

Team work as Simon says is always the way ! The goal was to make an album that was not just another VC album but a venture into other areas of punk and hard rock – letting all of our lifetimes musical collective flow to make it the best we could !

Lyrically deep within these times – we have all had life issues – that is life – the hero’s journey

Songs at points have an amazing melody both sad sounding and uplifting to reflect the true emotions – catchy …

I don’t know what anyone will think but come what may we made the album we wanted to make …

that’s all that really matters

Not sure why I had to write this but felt I needed too !
❤️👍🙏🏼🤘”

Visceral Collapse (Venomous Concept) Release “Knowle Road”

Venomous Concept’s Shane Embury (Napalm Death), Kevin Sharp (ex-Brutal Truth), and John Cooke (Napalm Death) have launched a new side project called Visceral Collapse. You can find their new release, “Knowle Road,” on Bandcamp.

Sharp commented:

“Shane and I got to talking about records we wanted to do — I guess the older you get, the more curious you become. Records we only talked of doing but never got around to, but then COVID came and gave us two things: crisis and time on our hands. I sort of feel I have created deconstructed music in multitudes of methodology and melody might be an unexplored extreme.

So Shane wrote some songs for the next Venomous Concept album; more uptempo high-paced rock ‘n’ roll punk mixed in with a Hüsker Dü melodic ’80s hardcore punk feel. It goes this way then that way and an album forms. Anyway, you will hear more about that album next year once we roll into 2021!

The idea was for me to fly to Birmingham/Cambridge and record for my birthday back in September. I arrived three days early to work on last-minute ideas for the record we had written.

Not being capable of following a plan, we went in and immediately recorded an emotional avalanche titled Knowle Rd. This may not be for everyone. That said, this record was Johnny, Shane and myself, so in an effort to direct the ear, we are using a different acronym for this VC record: This part of our hard drive will be called Visceral Collapse, which, if you think about it, defines 2020. If in the future “Venomous Concepts” exceed perceived content, we will probably come up with another acronym… but Ook will always be VC!

So if you enjoy placing your head in an oven, I encourage you to get in your special place. and set your head to broil. Knowle Rd is the 2020 lease-breaker everyone felt this year.”
