Metal Legends VENOM INC Sign with Nuclear Blast Records and Breaking Bands LLC

Just a quick bit of label signing stuff coming at you all. This news broke the other day but I had a plethora of posts in line to do so this had to wait until now. I hope that you don’t mind and here now the latest news from the camp of the Venom Inc. Dig in to the full press that I was sent.

The Press Release:
Metal Legends VENOM INC Sign with Nuclear Blast Records and Breaking Bands LLC VENOM INC is Jeff “Mantas” Dunn, Anthony “Abaddon” Bray and Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan. Performing Select Festivals in 2017 – Hammerfest, Inferno Fest & More

In mid-2015, former Venom member Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan, together with original members Jeff “Mantas” Dunn and Tony “Abaddon” Bray, formed a second incarnation of Britain’s seminal black metal band. After coming together under the flag VENOM INC, history began to write itself once again. Now, after proving their lasting prowess on the road and at festivals internationally throughout the past year, the band is pleased to announce their signing with premier international heavy metal label Nuclear Blast Records. The band is scheduled to release a new album this year – more details coming soon!

Nuclear Blast A&R Manager Jaap Wagemaker states, “Nuclear Blast is very stoked to welcome Mantas, Abaddon and the Demolition Man as new members of the Nuclear Family! We grew up with the first three albums that Mantas and Abaddon recorded and made them legendary, and that led the foundations to black metal! I’ve also been a big fan of Atomkraft with the Demolition Man as well! I’ve already had the pleasure of working with Mantas and Abaddon early 90’s when there was a tribute released, In The Name Of Satan, and when they did the reunion show at Dynamo Open Air! A couple of years ago I saw them perform with VENOM INC – their first ever concert at Keep it True and ever since then the band have proven to be road warriors and have played around the globe answering to the calls of their legions! This year I received the first demos and they proved that they are still built of iron and steel and that they have returned at full force! The band is ready to write another chapter to their legendary status! It is with great pride that we welcome VENOM INC to Nuclear Blast!”
