After months of anticipation, VENOM INC. will release their upcoming full-length opus, entitled Avé, on August 11, 2017 via Nuclear Blast. Pre-orders for the new album are available now at:

The first single from Avé, entitled “Dein Fleisch”, watch it here: 

VENOM INC. was born during an impromptu live set at 2015’s Keep it True Festival in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. The on-stage reunion was a rousing success amongst Venomfans and music industry personnel alike, and although it was originally only set up for fun, Dolan began receiving numerous show offers for VENOM INC. from booking agents around the world. What started as a live set to celebrate Venom‘s legacy immediately turned into a serious reunion discussion. The rest is history.
While unexpected at the outset, the end result of this reunion is an album that true Venomfans will gladly add to the top of their playlists. Vocalist/bassist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan says, “We tried to shape Avé so that it comes at you dark, then it gets bright and heavy and just keeps growing into some kind of monster.”
Avé track listing:
01. Ave Satanas      
02. Forged In Hell   
03. Metal We Bleed              
04. Dein Fleisch
