Venom - Assault!

Label : Dissonance Productions | Archive under heavy / power metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Sjak : The English band Venom is of course a legendary metal act, that certainly in the early eighties really shook the foundations of the scene. Records like ‘Welcome To Hell’ (from 1981), ‘Black Metal’ (from 1982), ‘At War With Satan’ (from 1984) and ‘Possessed’ (from 1985) anno 2017 still haven’t lost anything of their original charm and that certainly deserves respect. Venom also released a lot of EPs in the eighties, among which six ‘Assault’-EPs, which saw the light of day between 1985 and 1987. All these EPs are now brought together in this ‘Assault’ box set, which is good for about two-and-a-half hours of great Venom music. The songs on this box set are all remastered from the original vinyl recordings and contain a mix of studio and live tracks.

It may be obvious that this box set is a “must-have” for anyone that has a soft spot for this groundbreaking band, especially because nowadays it’s very difficult to get a hold of the original releases. This is mainly due to the fact that the ‘Assault’-series was meant as a limited-edition souvenir only and that the band never officially gave its permission for the French, German and Scandinavian ‘Assault’-releases. So grab this opportunity and buy this box set, as it contains a great collection of Venom material!
