Venom - Welcome To Hell LP (40th anniv. color vinyl)
Fierce, filthy, and full of blasphemy and overboard metal attitude, Welcome to Hell by Venom was a landmark change for metal in the early 1980s since it laid out the grittier side of the new wave of British heavy metal.
Abhorrent Rapture showcases the band in the more immediate and intense MLP format. Four tracks in roughly eighteen minutes of pure savagery but always with that eerie mood, creeping melodic sense and grisly intimidation essential to proper death metal.
