Venom Inc - Necrophagia - Tour Promo Flyer - January 2015 - #MO10339933MDFNST

UK-based metallers, VENOM INC., will kick off their long-anticipated North American tour next month. Initially scheduled to take place this past Fall but postponed, the rescheduled demolition will pillage its way through nearly two dozen cities from January 5th through January 28th.

VENOM INC. features original Venom members guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn and drummer Anthony “Abaddon” Bray with former Venom bassist/vocalist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan. The band made their live debut as VENOM INC. in April 2015 at the Keep It True Festival in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany, performing a full set of Venom classics and played to over 30,000 people at Heavy Montreal last August.

Dolan and Dunn have spent the last few years collaborating in M:Pire Of Evil, who released their latest full-length, Crucified, in May 2013. VENOM INC. took to the streets early this past Fall on the lengthy Iron And Steel European Tour before closing the year with a Latin American live takeover. This January, North America will finally get its venomous baptism with the band again performing a full set of Venom’s most revered tunes.

Necrophagia will be touring in support of their latest full-length WhiteWorm Cathedral out now via Season Of Mist. Formed in 1983, Necrophagia was one of the very first Death Metal bands in the United States. Often considered pioneers in the “Horror Metal” genre, the band gained notoriety after cutting their teeth in the underground by staging ambitious live shows, chock full of blood, guts and gore.

Necrophagia went on to receive world-wide acclaim for 1998’s genre-defining Holocausto de la Morte full-length featuring Pantera frontman Philip H. Anselmo. Following this landmark album, the band went on to release several well-received full lengths and EPs, most of them still available at the Season of Mist shop.

NECROPHAGIA – From the storied history of Death, Gore and all Extreme Metal, returns the band that helped pioneer it all: Necrophagia. Be prepared for their fifth full-length to be released on May 17th, 2011, via Season of Mist, titled: Deathtrip 69. With the legendary Killjoy on vocals and at the deadly forefront of Necrophagia, perseverance is this iconic band’s middle name. Don’t miss out on Extreme Metal’s history being made once again… get your insane ears and senses into Deathtrip 69 and be thankful you were told to do so.

I recently corresponded with Necrophagia’s guitarist Boris Randall, in regards to Deathtrip 69. Here is how Boris broke it down, in what to expect from this new Necrophagia album:

“Deathtrip 69 is Necrophagia getting back to it’s roots. Back to what put us on the map for horror and gore mixed with Extreme Metal. At the same time, this album features some new elements that Necrophagia is experimenting with such as more use of acoustic guitars, less synths, different styles of writing, as well as bringing back guitar solos”.

When I asked about the featured guests on Deathtrip 69, being Casey Chaos and Maniac, Boris added:

Casey Chaos shares lead vocals with Killjoy on the song Kyra, a tribute to Kyra Shon of the original Night Of The Living Dead. Maniac has a spoken word section in the title track Deathtrip 69″.
